First, I am really glad I decided to stay at my moms! Not only does she have an adjustable bed where you raise your head up and down, but it’s just been really nice to be separated from that which I would feel like I’m supposed to be doing something-my house. But I do miss my hubby and the kiddies quite a bit…

Today my pain is either really bad or manageable. My right side especially hurts.  When I walk (which I have been doing lots of) I have to hold my belly so it doesn’t jiggle. And I have a massive headache that just will not quit. 

You all said getting all your fluids after surgery was hard, I believed you but boy, it is hard! Broth feels better on my tummy than anything else today. My gas pain has not been too bad at all, oddly.  

I’m hoping I feel much better tomorrow and don’t have to take pain meds. Going to the dr in the morning. Kind of irritated I have to drive all the way to Atlanta for them to change my dressing. I don’t have any drains or anything.  

That’s my check-in for today. More later… 


One thought on “Recovering

  1. A lot of people did an out patient deal… while I was required to stay two nights. Not me I particular, but all of Dr. Pinson’s patients stay two nights. I’m glad I had to. I was able to get my walking started (we had to walk a mile before discharge), had a full day to get liquids in with the nurses watching and encouraging, and it kept me from doing stuff around the house as well. I also felt better watching the barium swallow test (though the barium made me wanna hurl). So basically, surgery on Tuesday and home on Thursday. By then I wasn’t taking any pain or nausea meds.
    It gets better day by day!!! Welcome to the lovely, losers bench!!!❤️
