I hope you all follow me on twitter or facebook because I am a terrible blogger these days. I just do not have the attention span to write a blog post. And to be honest, I have been sort of hopped up on pain meds and sleeping as much as the pain will let me. I have spent most of my time since surgery on the couch, sometimes sleeping and sometimes just wishing sleep would come.
So I will take you through some of the high lights. If you follow the hashtag #jenonthemend you can follow along with my ramblings and daily randomness.
I have such a short attention span these days. And I really don’t do a whole lot.
Proof is in the pictures, here is a slideshow taken on my blackberry of what I have done this week.
See told ya, not too exciting.
Here is a quick rundown of each day for the last week:
Thursday: Surgery day. I was way more nervous than I expected but I shouldn’t have been! Everything went smoothly.
Friday: a lot of pain. I did not really sleep for the first 24 hours post-surgery.
Saturday: dozed in and out on the couch, discovered online mah-jongg and words with friends for facebook has helped to distract me from pain.
Sunday: Finally slept. First sorta shower.
Monday: napped in bed.
Tuesday: nothing exciting to report.
Wednesday: First trip out of the house. Drive-thru bank and pharmacy.
Thursday: Thanksgiving. I took a sorta shower, had my sister and brother-in-law over for dinner, only took one short nap.
Friday: Absolutely exhausted from entertaining and being awake for Thanksgiving. I slept almost all day long!
Healing and recovering from surgery is harder and more exhausting than I ever thought possible.
Sorry I am not too exciting these days….but I just wanted to check in. I am going to need these posts to look back on. I know I have a long road to recovery but the end will be worth it! I am doing my best to stay positive – some days (some minutes) are better than others.
For now, I am headed back to sleepytown!
