heat and rest

November 17th, 2010 at 04:50 pm

I went to bed at midnight last night and woke up at 9. I got up and turned the heat up and went back to bed for a 1/2 hour. I had to turn the heat on the day before my surgery, Nov 9, which was very late this year. We had a long Indian Summer, but we got snow that day. Since I've been home from the hospital I'm keeping it higher than normal, because when you have a bunch of holes in them it hurts to clench your stomach muscles from the cold when you walk from the bed to the bathroom or around the house. Normally I don't notice that slight clenching of muscles. I sure do now Smile

I took a long hot shower, got dressed and ate breakfast. I sat down in my chair and dozed off until 11 when mom called to go walking. We went to Walmart and walked about a 1/3rd of our usual route. I was exhausted. Came home, changed clothes again and sat in chair and dozed until 3:00 pm. Ate lunch, watched the news, came up here to work on the computer a little and ready to doze off again. It's ridiculous. I'm fortunate that I'm in a position where I can do this and don't have to rush back to work and try to cope with getting better and doing a job.

I got a sample of Tide detergent and a Glad trash bag in the mail.

I finished reading the library book Sword of Orion by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Sci/Fi. Not that good, in fact I'm not going to bother reading the sequel. I really love thier Liaden Universe series, but haven't found anything else of theirs that I like.

    I remember when I was recovering from my ankle break and surgery that I just couldn't get warm enough. Of course, it was mid-winter, but still, I had to keep inching the heat up just to be comfortable.

    You will get your strength back. Don't push yourself too hard now.

    I just read about the whole ordeal. So glad it is behind you and you can get on to recovery.
