Finally, the last drain will be removed today.  It's been 2 weeks and a day since the surgery.  That is a long time to have a drain and I'll be glad to get rid of it.  I am getting around easier now.  It's OK for me to stand straight (if I can), but not to walk yet.  I'm going to ask the doc today about that.  I want to start some moderate walking and gradual build up to what I was doing before.  I will feel a lot better then. 
I still have some shooting pains in the abdomen and now the breast.  I'm probably feeling it because I stopped the Vicodin a few days ago. 
The job I was temping at finally got the position posted for permanent, so hopefully, I'll be able to apply next week.  They have to do an internal posting for 7 days first, before offereing it to outsiders.  It's a union shop.  I had a dream last night that a lot of people applied for it and I was worried I didn't have a chance.  Wish me luck!

Hey, girl. I have not posted, but I have been reading about your progress. Way to go, girl!! I am very happy that you are progressing so well. Just have to get into the swing of walking.\ daily.
I believe that since you have been doing the job at the company, that you stand a good chance of getting this position. It all depends upon how they wrote up the job. I hope the wrote it for your "skill level".
Good luck with the job and and know that either way, it's God's will. He never closes a door without opening another.
Love ya,

Thanks for the good luck wishes on the job.  The boss did stress the computer skills, which the other lab people probably don't have, so I think I have that advantage.
I am so happy to be free of all drains!  yeah   Doc said I can start walking, gradually, starting with 5 mins for a few days, then 10, etc.  He said by the time I see him again in 2 weeks, I should be up to 30 mins.  I am happy!  I also feel like I can stand straighter today for some reason.  He said the pains are normal.  I asked about my arm, because I can't reach very far and he said to start exercising it, just like when I had the lymphs removed - walking the hand up the wall.  Again, he told me I'm doing VERY well.

Kathy- CONGRATS on getting rid of the those DARN DRAINS! I * D* those things, I had 4 and 2 stayed in about 4 weeks. I griped quite a bit about it. Walk that hand up the wall... that exercise helps so much.

GOOD LUCK with the job!! I'll be praying you get it.
