A Bath = Relaxation

I will preface this post with a little fact…

I am a  bath person.

I love to light candles, grab a glass of wine and soak in a mound of foamy bubbly hot water.

In reality this kind of experience is not common, but when it happens

I AM IN HEAVEN.

Needless to say, when the doctor told me yesterday that I was able to take baths again I was thrilled.

SO today, I wanted to ‘test the waters’.

I made sure the kids were glued to the tv taken care of and headed in for my soak.

I added enough bubbles for 3 bathtubs our size, turned the water on HOT.

Once the tub was full I carefully got in.

I was a bit nervous about laying on the hard porcelain bath tub, but I really wanted to try.

I sat down and felt a strange sensation, kind of a rip in the lowest part of my incision.

Turns out a tiny scab had come loose.

I decided I should end the bath in case there was  a risk of infection.

(I am a bit of a pessimist and suspect things will naturally go bad.)

So I unplug the drain and then realized that I was

totally,

utterly,

completely,

undeniably

STUCK!

The water quickly left me bubble clad and terrified.

Holy Crap!

I tried to get up.

No dice.

I tried to get up from the right side, then the left.

Nothing!

All I could think about was how far away my clothes were and how screwed I was and why didn’t I try a ‘dry run’?

So how did I get out of the bath tub?

Thank you so much for asking!

🙂

The thought of having to call and ask for help.

The thought of someone seeing you in that kind of natural condition can really light a fire.

Now that you know the story, try to get up out of the tub w/o bending-lifting or twisting.

Let me know how you did!
