Huge Test Today [Jul. 10th, 2008|07:53 am]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

First day that I did enough the day before to feel a few things:
1. For a short part of the day I actually wanted sex!! This is amazing. While it certainly would be terribly painful and isn't allowed for 3.5 more weeks, just the fact I felt at all like it is amazing progress!

2. Remember me complaining how I'd need a refill on pain meds, Wednesday morning at the latest. Well. It's THURSDAY and I'm not going to run out until tonight, so there.

3. Today is the first day I feel the nerve pain searing down my leg over the intense abdominal pain when standing or walking. Several reasons for this, the first being I was up too much yesterday, so the nerve pain is worse, but also the LBL pain is FINALLY less agonizing. I'm feeling confident about my return to work since my little adventure went so well.

I leave at 9am to go to the doctor. Then I eat some leftovers. Then from 12:30am until 2pm I host my big 3 location work meeting and head back home to stay down for the rest of the night.

In rebel news, I'm racking up library fees and I don't even care.

I'm glad you're finally seeing some progress in the healing process. Whew!

I tell you what nobody is more hardcore than you. You hold those books hostage and you just rack up those fines baby! ;)

I am so hardcore. You'd be proud of me. I have on doc marten mary janes with white frilly anklets and a skirt today. :)


Go get a job this week dammit (tells universe to comply immediately). I'm broke and I worry about you and there ain't nothing old brokey ms. brokerson could do if you DID need help.

This is kind of odd, but...I'm glad you're feeling nerve pain? Because I totally get that you're feeling it because the surgery pain is easing enough for what you cope with every day to seep in. You're well on your way to recovery!!!!

Thanks! I also am glad because it totally means the deep muscle pain is letting up. My doctor was amazing today and I'm off to my meeting, then back home.

This surgery just KICKED MY BUTT, but I'm coming out of it now. :)

Yay, it sounds like some things are starting to get much better. I hope it continues!
