- The county fair is currently in town and yet here I am lying in bed ... ♪ ♫ I’m lying in bed just like Bryan Wilson did...♪ ♫
Sleep is a no show last night. Come 6am, I had spent most the night either fighting for a comfortable position or the fact that my bladder is piss, both figuratively and literally. My abdomen is swollen and puffy. I can only explain it as being firm and feeling tight as a drum. The kind of firmness that makes me look like I am about 4 months pregnant. *lol* This is common with hysterectomies --or any abdominal type operations really as I was informed before my leaving the hospital-- so although it’s not alarming, I am quite literally having to pee every 20 minutes! Very sore and very weak. I was under longer than expected due too some complications and given my weakness and the medication I’ve been put on now in general, I thought I would be far more comatose than I was.
Recovery sucks. Obvious statement of the day, but yeah, it sucks. Thankfully, my daughter, Jewel came to spend the day with me and, man, did I need it. I’m still puffy and tender all around and across my belly and not surprising, it makes the simple act of just trying to get up from a chair a formidable challenge! #IThinkImAPufferFish #CallTheSandman
