I am a month and 24 to 40 hours out from my surgery and the pain is becoming more bearable. I will stand firm on my soapbox that a wedge resection is alot more painful than a bi-lateral lung transplant with a clam shell incision. As my energy increases and pain decreases I need to do what I can to stress my lungs and my entire respiratory system.....so the girls R2 and I went to the zoo. I got alot of walking in, I wish I had our Radio Flyer (wagon) so the girls could pull me, that zoo kicked my but. I am SO glad we got there after school with only an hour and fifteen minutes left before the zoo closed.
