I'm currently recovering from an emergency c-section...I remember when my mid wife told me an emergency c-section was necessary I couldn't help but ball my eyes out. For the first week I was very emotional, I felt like I was helpless... I couldn't get up on my own let alone shower on my own..Getting up and walking was HORRIBLE. I couldn't get out of bed so I slept sitting up on the couch where i felt it was a bit easier to get up quicker without waking anyone else up to help me tend to my daughter... I'm a single parent so a family member had to call out to help me while I recovered. I'm on my second week now and things got a bit better but I tore so I got rushed back to the E.R only for them to tell me they've seen worse? And that the stitches inside is still sealed so I tore on the outside which is now considered an opened wound that I will now have to heal on my own...
