I had not taken a real shower since Sunday morning. If I’d known it would be my last for a while, I would have taken a longer one and savored it a bit! (For the record, I have done sponge baths since then!)
Well, today, one of my many doctors came to tell me the good news: I had bathroom privileges again!! I high-tailed it to the shower before she changed her mind. She was laughing!!
I took the most indulgent shower I’ve taken since my sophomore year of college when I spent 8 days on the Bay with Outward Bound and hadn’t showered. It was heavenly.
My hair is now washed and dried and I am thoroughly clean. They bought themselves another week with me here by giving me that good news!
I have never been so thankful for a shower and I’ll never take it for granted again.
