Four Day Weekend of Rest and Relaxation
It has been an exciting four day weekend for me! To start, I would just like to give a well deserved shout out to Arnica. Arnica is an herb that grows in Europe and the U.S. It’s often used as a skin treatment for bruises, aches, and pains. I slacked off a bit the first few days post-op, but once I committed to taking the Arnica regularly, the bruising pretty much disappeared overnight. LOVE IT!
I had a relaxing, yet fun weekend. My husband and I had an exciting night out planned for Saturday to go to Night at the Races, which was sponsoring our son’s wrestling team. That was cancelled, so we just stayed in.
Sunday, we went to see a two and half hour movie. I feel completely refreshed after four days of nothing. I did some pre-surgery measurements, so I would have something to refer to post-surgery. I’m still swollen, but I’m happy to report I am down a total of 7 inches, spread out over my stomach, hips, and inner thighs. Success!
