My motto for September is September is for Sitting. Remember the phrase Greener Grass
I had some surgery a little over a week ago. It was a little unexpected. The doctor found a few spots and there needed to be a biopsy and some surgery done to keep that from happening again. It was day surgery. I went fasting- my third hatest thing to happen when you have surgery. My second is the IV. It always hurts- this time I have a wicked bruise but the stick was great and it was a non-event. My most hatest thing is the time on the gurney from pre-op til you are knocked out in the operating room. This time my nurse, Monica, gave me Versed!!! I was out like a light!! I don't remember anything!! I came home after 5 hours, slept in my bed that night. All in all for surgery it was great.
I can't lift anything over 10 pounds. My doctor told me not to even lift my purse. I am to rest for two weeks and it may be four. Sounds great doesn't it. Greener Grass. I can think of so many things to do, it is not even funny. Yes, I am making a list but I'd love to be doing some of them now, but no, I am resting. Doesn't it sound like a dream to be told you must rest for two weeks. It isn't.
Someday I'll be complaining that I wish I could rest!
Last week I was still cloudy from the anesthesia and pain meds. This week is better. About midnight on the day after surgery I sat up in bed and asked Carl to google the surgery I had just had! He calmly told me that we would google it as soon as it was morning. That's all I needed. I went back to sleep. Poor Carl he never knows what I'll do!
I ordered books from amazon.com in my post surgery fog. We are still trying to figure out why I ordered what I did???
I lost my shoes one day only to find them on Kaitlin's feet because I offered them to her????
I don't like that foggy feeling.
Today I just feel tired. I am ready to not feel tired.
So I am sitting and resting.
The TV show Matlock has been good. I tried to read a book Andrew recommended about Double Spies during WWII but I am just here to say when you have a foggy brain and you try to read about spies, it messes with your mind. I'll try that book later.
Enjoy you doing today. I'll be back doing soon. Today I am being and resting and not thinking about that green grass.
