I am doing fine. Really. This whole thing is way easier than I thought it would be. Thanks Hilary for giving me a time frame for feeling better, I think I am on track. I have been taking it pretty easy the last couple days, and I even spent yesterday at my moms so we could keep each other company in our recoveries.
I was surprised at how good I felt once I got home on Wednesday. Even without the meds, I was feeling pretty good. It is true that the worst part is the air they put inside you during the surgery. I feel great while I am laying on the couch with my hot rice bag on my shoulders and my cold ice bag over my incisions, then I stand up and it feels like my abdomen is twice its normal size. I know I need to move around more, but my apartment is just not that big. I will take myself (and my iPod) for a walk later today.
Nik's coworkers are going to see Coraline tonight, so I don't want to over do it, but I want to make sure I am ok to sit through the whole movie. I am so excited for this by the way.
I want to say thanks again to Talina who brought dinner over Wednesday night and stayed to talk to me for a while, and to Jenny and Tyson who brought dinner last night. Christi brought me some amazing shortbread and carmel cookies and talked for a while too. It is good to have company who doesn't care that I don't have my contacts in and that my hair is not done. I am looking forward to getting ready tonight. Feeling human.
By the way, it hurts to take a deep breath (yawn) and cough.
