What's Going On?

I've been gone a few days and I'll tell you what's been going on. I had surgery - a procedure that lasted 2.5 - 3 hours. A procedure that kept me in the hospital for over 48 hours where there was no wifi connection. I am fine now. On the mend. Staying home for the next month or more.

My stay in the hospital following the surgery was pretty easy. I slept most of the time. I was drugged so what can you expect. Thankfully, I am back home with a list of must-do while in recovery. One of them to is to keep hydrated. I am not good with getting hydrated. My choice is coffee, but a day before the surgery and up till now I have not had any caffeine. I don't want to be jittery and nervous during the surgery and after so I decided to forego my favorite drink.

Today is my first full day home. My husband is still off today so he stayed home with me. He is very good at taking care of me before, during, and after the surgery. He made breakfast and all the meals and making sure I take in enough water.

Anyway, here's what I found really frustrating with having surgery:

  • Coughing sucks a lot. It hurts to cough.
  • It took a lot to get you to pass gas.
  • Getting up and down the bed is a workout.
  • Taking the stairs is a gym activity.
So far it's only one day, but I am already bored. I have planned on taking on a new project. If you are interest to know, it's a cross stitch project that I purchased at 40% off from Michael's a few weeks ago. I have been whining about how much I loved to cross stitch and how little time I have for leisure that none of it could be allotted to cross stitch. Now that I am looking at being homebound for a month, I thought it's high time to pick up my needle again.

That's what's been happening in my world. How's your world this past week?

oh wow!

glad to know you're recovering well.

I haven't had any surgeries but i've heard coughing after a surgery can be really a pain.

Get well soon!
