Every Day A Little Better

But It Takes Time

I am taking my pain meds, for all of you who have so advised. While I hate the idea of being dependent, they really do help with the soreness and "heaviness" I feel.

I am up and about, and have been outside a few times. The Boys were not too impressed by my homecoming, but perhaps our "psychic" connections are strong enough that they knew all along what was going on. Besides, Donna has been taking excellent care of them, so all their needs have been met. As far as the basics go, I am just an outside "accessory" for the time being. *G*

While I was away, my friend Bill put gutters on the barn and cleaned up my leaves. Yesterday he dropped over with some delicious meals whis wife sent to me and then he went out and put some plastic coverings on my Christmas light connections as I think the rain/snow had shorted something out. We had a nice chat for a while. Later on, I got a call from my church pal, Dawn, who was in the area and she dropped over for a short visit as well.

I was up and down out of bed/couch quite a bit and did a fair share of walking, all part of my recovery prescription. But I must admit I am very tired most of the time. I do hope that too is normal.

Meantime, I am discovering the vast wasteland of daytime TV and just king of hanging around.

I don't sit at the computer for too long at a time, so I am still catching up on missed blogs. Please be patient with me. I will get back to you as soon as I am able.


  1. Oh, daytime tv. It's mildly amusing for a time, but then it just gets irritating. At least, that was my experience.

    I'm glad you have such good friends to help you out!

    Nice that you've had visitors and are getting around a bit - it does take time to recover from these things. Keep resting up!

  3. Sounds like everything is coming along. It's so nice you have neighbors that care. I'm sure the boys enjoy seeing you, if only as an accessory. Glad you're getting your exercise. I think some of the tiredness is from the meds and some from the actual surgery. It all takes a while to heal. I couldn't stand daytime TV during my recuperation it's so boring and mindless. When I was recovering I did lots of reading. Good wishes for a speedy recovery and back to normal-ness (is that a word)?

  4. you're bound to be tired, it'll be a couple of weeks before that fades, i expect, but being home will at least mean your routine is your routine, not someone else's.. home always the best place to be! but as the pain subsides, you'll feel more lively - and that's when you have to remember not to do anything LOL

  5. Ack, daytime TV will rot your brain. But it's kind of like a car crash, you just can't look away *L*.

    It takes a lot of energy to heal, feeling tired is pretty normal. I was encouraged to walk around frequently after my cesarean section, I believe it helped. It felt like my guts were going to fall out for about a week, though....it's a very disturbing sensation.

    Glad you have good friends and neighbors to help out. You should be back to normal in no time!
