Hey there friends,
So here is what I was doing on my birthday. Not really exciting but a must. On Friday, November 5th I had a hysterectomy. This is what I looked like the following day (my b-day).
The pain meds swelled up my face and cheeks. They were on FIRE!! My darling husband didn't say anything to me. I kept telling him my face was really hot. The nurse came in and asked why my face was so red. Then when the doctor came in he yelled, "What happened to your face"?!! I was like, "Okay, would someone please give me a mirror"!! So, instead we took a picture so I can see. My DH didn't want to say anything because he didn't want to worry me. He's such a darling!!
Anyway, it's day 6 for me. I've been laying in bed, reading magazines, watching too much tv and finally online. I have caught up on my DT's blogs, visit some of my fav sites, order my winter coat, boots, clothes and of course, checked my work emails.
The meds are making me really nauseous. Today is the first day without prescribed pain meds and I'm doing much better. I have tried everything under the sun to take the nausea away. I have a few more days of bed rest and then 4-6 week for a full recovery with no heavy lifting, cleaning, laundry, sweeping and exercise. I have to take it very easy. I pray and hope I can do my work because there is so much to do. Both and home and church that is!!
Tomorrow, I will see if I can create something. I'll do little at a time but, I can't promise I'll have something to show. I feel very much like I had a c-section and sitting for too long hurts.
Well, thanks for checking in. I'll see you here soon!!
