Post thyroidectomy scar complete with drains.

This is how I looked when I woke up.  I don't remember being in the recovery room, only transferring to the bed in my hospital room.  The nurses were poking and prodding for calcium levels and vitals.  I was asked to keep wiggling my toes and fingers, drink ice water, do deep breathing exercises and stay awake.  My husband had to keep reminding me of these things as I fell in and out of sleep all afternoon.  I would be talking to him and fall asleep mid-sentence to do laundry in my dreams.
