Paint Pump Removal

This morning following breakfast and 2 hours on the CPM machine, I removed the long pain pump catheter. It was about 5 inches long and it came out almost effortlessly. I felt it move through my leg but it wasn't too bloody. Luckily, I was able to remove the blood that was pooled in the bandages. I cleaned it up and the arthoscopic part had some dried blood but it was OK.

My Mama gave me a towel bath which felt nice and I was able to change into comfortable pants, after being freed from the catheter.  I also spent more time in the CPM machine in the evening and went up to 76 degrees. There is definite progress!

Yea! And, I'm able to eat better now.
