    Go easy, be your own best friend for a while. Healing takes a lot of energy! Rest lots, sending healing thoughts your way...

    I was just wondering how you were doing. Thanks for checking in.

    I agree with the others -- embrace the nap. Like voting in Chicago, nap early and often. Sleep is so important for healing.

    Best wishes that you feel better soon.

    Whew today must be one of those days the girls on Hystersisters were talking about. I cannot stay conscious. I've been walking daily, maybe I overdid it a bit yesterday? I noticed some of my swelly belly has gone down since I've done a whole lot of nothing today. I noticed the Norco I've been taking makes my stomach puky feeling, especially when it wears off. Gonna try just using the Ibuprofen so hopefully my stomach will calm down a bit.

    Hang in there Winding Road! Yeah, Norco does cause digestive system problems but don't be shy about taking it if you still need it. It can be a hard call, the pain relief help you to rest and heal but the digestive system issues can cause other things.

    When you said Norco, I thought you were talking about mountain bikes.
    Where else would anyone think this?
    Of course you are exhausted. You are up and walking less than a week after surgery. It's hard for us to imagine the metabolic energy it takes for healing to occur.
    I remember one day about 10 days after my second son was born, I had to drive to my school to pick up my paycheck. I was on the freeway, and all of a sudden, I thought I was going to have to pull over and call someone to get me. It's the only time I have felt that kind of exhaustion, and that was after a natural birth, with no drugs. I can only imagine what you are feeling. Nap all you want.

    Still walking 2-3 times per day. I did my longest walk yet today and didn't immediately fall asleep afterwards! I can cook my own food now too. I had a nice visit with Catrin, she brought me a Pumpkin Spice Latte yesssssss! It's nice to have some social interaction. I'm starting to get cabin fever a bit but I'm still too scared to ride in a car. My bikes seems sooooo far away right now.

    That is so cool, I regret never meeting up with Catrin when I lived over in Champaign.

    Sounds like you're getting there, it's a slow process but pretty linear so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Still at home hanging out. Soooo bored. I walked 3x yesterday and ended up with over 6 miles for the day. I wasn't wiped out and actually felt a lot better. Today I must have hit the 'hormonal stage' some other ladies have mentioned. Sitting on the couch after I woke up I start crying for absolutely NO reason. BF's about to leave for work and he gets all worried. Then I start laughing b/c it's so ridiculous. Laughing and crying simultaneously, sigh. Catrin maybe the next PSL better have a Prozac in it, LOL! Feelin' kinda mental today.

    I'm glad you're making progress and able to keep a sense of humor about things. Are there any not-too-strenuous rainy-day tasks around the house that you could tackle to alleviate the boredom?

    Well the massive mood swings have leveled out a bit. My steri-strips started falling off today so I went ahead and peeled them the rest the way off. My incision actually looks pretty good. My stitches are still in but Thursday I suspect she will take those out. Still having the sensation of cramps?!?! How is that possible, I mean are the ovaries fighting or what?!?! Good news is one of my girlfriends is coming over to teach me how to knit. Thank God I need something to do with my hands! Normally I clean things but I really can't do that b/c I can't lift over 15 lbs or do push/pull motion. I am REALLY hoping my doctor releases me to drive Thursday. At least I can go walk in other places. I'm sick to death of my neighborhood, lol.
