Just don’t look behind you

Taking a nice yoga class today with my husband and sister. I went to one six weeks or so after my surgery. That’s when I found out that radical hysterectomies are very painful for a long time., this will be my 2nd class since July. Weird after 18 months of doing two 90 minute classes a week. This is a workshop on yoga & relaxation. I don’t think I’ll like it as much as just a nice slow flow hatha (sorry niki!) because I’m pretty good at relaxing. I do however think it will be a nice class for my husband so I hope he embraces it. The only thing I need to allow myself to relax usually is a quiet room.

My digestive system is still not healed but it’s on the right track. I have good days, then a bad day, then good days. My bad days are certainly not as bad as they were! I think today is a good day. I may be thinking P.F. Changs for dinner.

I still have a huge numb area at the top of my right leg. It’s normal after that kind of surgery. In the last week it’s really started to have some crazy feeling at the edges. I’m sure it’s the nerves starting to reconnect but it is crazy painful for a few seconds then it stops. Like someone touching your leg with a bundle full of live wires.

Started working out again this week. yay! Starting very slowly. 15 minutes on the elliptical then 15 on the recumbent bike. I still have trouble making it to my office on the 2nd floor. I think next week I will start walking up to the 3rd floors’ restroom. You don’t get stronger if you don’t push a tiny bit. 

I have been collecting resumes in preparation for hiring someone (really I guess there isn’t any other reason to collect resumes!) and now I’m scheduling interviews for the next two weeks. All resumes were submitted via email, and within 24 hours I responded to each one with an email asking additional questions. I am astounded by the number of people who don’t respond. 

I am still so far behind at work. Uhg. Of course if someone from my company were to read this they might think, well why aren’t you working instead of blogging, to which I respond, uh…..

I feel asleep with my hearing aid in. I think that’s odd, but I knew it would happen eventually. One of my biggest fears is getting in the shower without taking it out.Last week I got in the shower with my glasses on. Water is death to hearing aids. I do have a replacement warranty though, so that’s good. If you are going to get a hearing aid I would absolutely recommend you buy a membership to Costco and buy it there. You save the membership cost plus a whole lot more just on one hearing aid and their warranty is so much better. I love my hearing aid. 

Okay, enough randomness!  Enjoy your Saturday!
