Today marks the final day of monsterhood--my staples came out! This morning Sister Dr. Kendall stopped by and pulled out the 17 little staples that kept my neck together this week.
It's been 9 days since the surgery, and I'm still alive (amazingly). Yesterday was probably my hardest day yet, but on the opposite end of the spectrum, today (so far anyway) has been my best day yet. Cheesy, but I guess the night truly is darkest before the dawn.
