Dealing With Diverticulitis - Part 16 - Third Day of Recovery

Three days of recovery are over, hurray!

Don got up and "took a shower".  I think I have come up with a way to make some money when it comes to taking a shower where you really can't get anything wet.  It is a great way to wash your hair in a hospital bathroom.  Be watching for it on TV infomercials. "Only 19.95. But wait, if you order now you can get two extra at no extra charge." LOL.

Don says he feels so much better.  We had been joking about everytime he gets in the shower Dr. Paul shows up.  We got Don's birthday suit on and ready to go in the shower and guess who walked in?  This is the third time Dr. Paul came in while Don was taking a shower.  We just busted up. We chided him that if we wanted to see him all we had to do was head for the shower and he would appear.

Two Docs have seen Don today and the OT.  All of them have said he is doing really well for this early in the recovery process.  Don is determined to get better so he can go home and get on with life as it should be.  I am proud of him for remaining positive when he could have succumbed to depression.  It hasn't been easy but all the encouragement and prayers and cards have helped so much.
