The hubby informed me tonight that I left my blog readers on a cliffhanger after my surgery. I’m glad to report that I made it through the surgery without complication other than some more intense than usual pain. I have a history of crazy things happening to me, so the pain really was the least of my worries. I kept worrying that I might have said something stupid while I was under anesthesia, I can’t even imagine how many times I must have asked if I had said anything embarrassing.
Yesterday I was pretty much in a fog all day. I was needing my pain medication around the clock as soon as I could safely take it.
Today has been somewhat better. Other than an upset stomach and some mild depression, I’ve felt more like myself. I always get somewhat depressed when I’m out of commission for a while. I tend to feel guilty for not doing “my part” around the house and with the baby.
I also feel really depressed about not being able to exercise. This is the longest I’ve gone without serious physical activity in about a year and a half. I’m hoping to go for a good walk tomorrow, and maybe try the elliptical soon. I think its still going to be a while before I’m ready to run again though.
I didn’t intend for this to turn into a big complaint session. I’ll try to be more positive next time.
