A Llittle Better Than the Last

I’m sorry.  I don’t have the energy to be creative with titles today.  I took cough medicine but slept kind of rough still.  I’m trying to be optimistic, but I’ve got deadlines bearing down and no feeling of incentive to meet them.  I’m only one week post-surgery and feel about like it. I dont’ know what happened to me that I’m not bouncing back very well.  Right afterwards I seemed to be doing really well, but I’m starting to wonder if that wasn’t just the painkillers talking. I’m so very tired. I’m used to caffeine propping me up and I can’t have cokes anymore because of having my gallbladder out.  I wonder how long it will take to get over not having it and start feeling good again.  And I can’t help but wonder if I’m not reverting back to depression somehow.  I hope not.  I have too much to do to be depressed.

Here’s hoping everyone else is having a good week.  Keep praying for me.

Better Day

I feel some better.  I slept on the couch last night and got some relief from the cough from being propped up halfway.  So I don’t feel so bad,  Followed up with my doctor about my cholesterol and  got a z-pac prescription and a safe OTC cough syrup from him.  So I’m looking forward to better sleep tonight and being able to work on my class assignment tomorrow.  I printed the work I’m reviewing off yesterday and look to write my paper tomorrow, revise it on Thursday, and send it on Friday.  Iv’e been  thinking about it since it was assigned so I think I will have it in hand once I start typing.

I still can’t do any significant house work lifting anything like laundry etc. for a while, so I’m not sure how it’s all gong to get done.  I may just have to do it myself anyway.  I may talk my youngest into helping this afternoon.  That’s the only solution I see so far is for her to actually put the in and out of the machines and me just tell her what to do.  We will see.

Bad Day

Had a horrid night list night with this cough I’ve got.  And so therefore I’ve felt rotten today.  I am tired of being a good patient.  I’v had three surgeries in seven months and I am tired of being rushed through recovery and having to take up all the slack as soon as I can,  I need a serious rest.  I wish we could schedule a getaway for a few days and just relax. But there’s just too much going on for that to happen  I’m afraid.

ANd I’m nervous about a paper I have coming up.  I haven’t written a paper for a grade in over 20 years. I’m scared that I  don’t know how it’s supposed to be done any more.  I’ll just have to get it done and see what happens. But that doesn’t stop me from being anxious about it,

I finally just sat down and cried and I think got it all out of my system.  At least I hope so.  Bob’s going to be home soon enough.

Hope everyone has a good week.  And I hope I can sleep tonight.

New Wrinkle

So now I can add a backache to my list of hurting places .  DOn’t know where it came from but it came on last night like gangbusters.  I’m sure that some of it is how I have to lie on my back to sleep–very stiffly and not moving.  I have about twenty minutes until I can take my next pain pill, so I will do that then go back to bed.  I’m developing a lot of bruising around my incisions, so that is starting to look interesting,.  I go back in two weeks to get checked up  on so I will see how that goes.  I feel like today’s going to be another long day with not being able to do very much.  But sleeping should help move it along.

Going to cut this sort so I can go ahead and take my meds soon,  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Recovery

Now I am recovering from gallbladder surgery.  I have four nasty-looking cuts and some pain breaking through the meds,  But otherwise I am fine,  I have to e careful what I eat as my body adjusts to not having a gallbladder, but otherwise I think I am doing fine,  I’m resting up and seeing how lazy I can be 🙂  They want me up miving around but not necessarily doing anything. So I am just walking around the house a bit and trying not to overdo.

I think I will cut this short and go lie down some more.  Hope everyone else has a good rest of the week and weekend!

Here We Go Again

It is again unconscionably early and we’re getting ready to go to the hospital for my gallbladder surgery.   I get there at 5:45 a.m. and they start surgery at 7:30 supposedly.  At least I hope everything goes that smoothly.  Miracle of miracles, I barely coughed last night so wasn’t tempted to get a cough drop after midnight.  Hope that run holds through the hospital, too.

See you all after the surgery tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to ME!

So now I’m celebrating my 45th birthday today.  I’m handling it petty well–much better than I did my 40th. My fortieth I think I was suicidal. But now I have some years of stabiity to look back on instead of time wasted (in my eyes).  So I am in a much better place now than I was then.

Trying to get some things done before my surgery tomorrow.  I’m doing laundry so I won’t be lifting any right afterwards. So that is a chore.  But at least I won’t have to worry about it if I get it done.

Put on my favorite jacket today and found out it was a little snug :(.  That did  not make me happy. But maybe after my surgery recovery is over I can start some exercise,  I need to do something because the weight is not stay8ig under control.

Went out to lunch with Bob today and was good–I got chicken and watermelon and a small slice of chocolate cake for my birthday cake.  I feel like taking a nap but my little one will be coming home soon so I don’t really have time for that,  But I wish I did 🙂

Here’s hoping that everyone has a good week–best wishes!
