Still in bed. :)

I guess we finally found the one thing that can make me actually shut up for awhile.  Who knew having a few pieces taken out could be so exhausting? I have easily spent 95% of my time at home in bed. I can’t quite sit up straight so bed is a good place to be. I have my netbook, my television and a bathroom within three steps. And best of all I have my son and my husband. My husband checks on me and will get me anything I want and when he is at work my son checks on me at least every 45 minutes. I’m actually starting to think it might be a scheduled check. My shower today took me about 70 minutes.  Planning time, getting ready time, actual shower time, rebandage time. Then back to bed.


Thank you everyone for the support and well wishes. I was too drugged up to properly respond to each of you. Now it’s kind of late, so I’m sorry. That oxycontin is some powerful stuff. 


I find my body just gross. I have patches of adhesive that I can’t seem to get off, going to have to attack myself with some WD40. I have disgusting drains and staples and incisions and stitches. I have bruises everywhere, and a couple of random rashes in places. I’m having trouble eating. I don’t know why. Everything just tastes bad. I have this beautiful box of chocolates and I’ve only managed to eat one.  And I am HUGE! When I got home I was 12 pounds heavier than when I went into the hospital. I seem to be dropping about two pounds a day.Water?  Blood? I dunno.

Do you have the Hallmark Movie Channel? I’ve been watching some of the movies. They are visually beautiful but they leave something to be desired in the writing department, at least the ones I’ve seen so far



Here…have a chocolate.

  1. Take it easy, and heal! It takes a lot of rest.Please tell me you’ll use baby oil and not WD40.

  2. @Mom_with_a_Chainsaw – hmm, baby oil…that’s a thought!

  3. Yummy! Thanks for the chocolates!  Once you get unwired and de-stapled you will lose even more weight! Keep the spirit and complain all you want. You earned it girl.

  4. Those chocolates look devine.  Get your rest and I wish you a speedy recovery…but until then, accept all offers of help. 

  5. Just rest.  Don’t worry about us.  We will be here when you feel up to visiting. And the chocolates look wonderful, but you definitely deserve them after all you’ve been through!  (((HUGS!)))

  6. This would be driving me crazy!!!  There are positive things about this whole experience but I’m guessing they would only count up on 1 hand (that is 5 fingers if you are in an oxy blur).   You’ll be better tomorrow…one day at a time.

  7. Hallmark movies were good before it became a channel. No worries about how you lookin, just heal up. 🙂 

  8. Surgery is so hard on a body.  Your body needs every last bit of energy to heal itself.  Your guys are wonderful!  I am glad that they are taking such good care of you.  Even if they are scheduled checks, it is nice that they are there for you!It must be a bit shocking to come home and see such a radical change with your body.  I bet all that extra weight is water weight and will come off as you heal.The chocolates are beautiful.  Yummy!Take care! Feel beautiful!

  9. LOL are those the pieces they took out of you? No wonder you’re exhausted!

  10. Definately save the chocolate for when you can appreciate it.  Sure hope that is soon but don’t rush anything.  The results of surgery do resemble violence, don’t they.  The bruises will fade and the rest will eventually disappear or become invisible to you.  Glad the men are being good to you.  Take advantage and make them watch some chick flicks with you.  lol
