I am bored and lonely and starting to cause trouble.
The good news? I am feeling better and can now sleep without waking up when the pain meds wear out. I've only taken 3 pain meds all day (down from 12 total the first day!). I'm comfortable when I hold still. I've got on makeup and took a shower today. Bel cooked the BEST soup for me that I've ever had. Also, I'm back down to my pre-surgery weight of 10lbs overweight, so the swelling has subsided. After the night from hell I haven't thrown up again, although I've gotten nauseated enough to think I was going to twice. My incisions look good and I'm not bleeding much anymore. I still do not have pain in my right leg, even on less pain medication. The surgery follow up has been moved to Thursday at 11:15am because of my throwing up, so maybe I can get some different medication and go to work next week.
The bad news? I'm antsy and getting depressed just sitting here on the couch. Sometimes I decide to get up and "do stuff" because I'm bored, but that leads to me being in way more pain and feeling super hot in the face and exhausted. I'm terrible at staying down. My vision is still a bit blurry, so reading isn't that fun and I'm getting tired of TV. I'm annoyed that it's so hot out because I can't really be out there much.
Anyhow, my point is,..please entertain me. :)
