Monday was a really restful day. I was really tired so I decided to just stay in bed. The nurse from the Peninsula Hospital called to do my preop for Thursday over the phone, it took longer than I thought but she was really nice. The rest of the day I kind of just slept on and off, it felt great. I used to stay in bed at least once a week and I really miss those days but then when I stay in bed I do get a little restless and wish that I could get out. Especially on days like today where it ended up warming up to 81°. Teresa came over and we did my personal care and I got a nice long hot bath, I love doing my personal care and bath at night instead of the morning because then I can get up earlier and enjoy more of the day. For breakfast I had chili relleno casserole with Canadian bacon, mushrooms and spinach that Teresa made… it was so good I couldn't stop eating it so I ate way too much. For dinner I had tilapia with lemon and capers, eggplant and spinach.
Thursday went pretty smoothly. We got to the hospital and got to our room and there were a lot of people that help us although thank God I had Teresa, she knew exactly what to do. I woke up in the recovery room feeling like crap but I expected that. They somehow got me loaded in my chair and brought me home and that's all I really remember, somebody kept telling me to breathe deep and I wanted to smack them.
Friday I pretty much took the Percocet every 4 hours and slept, it's really hard to do everything at a 45° angle… I wish I would've practiced although I doubt it would have done much good. Everybody has been really good about letting me rest.
Friday was pretty much the same, I was out of it most of the day. I had all these hopes of watching movies and watching some of the shows on my TiVo but so far nothing has happened but sleep. People are waking me up to eat and then take your pills and then I am back to sleep again. I guess I'm catching up on all my sleep now.
Saturday is the same thing all over again, eat, pills, sleep.
Sunday I feel a little bit more awake even with the pills, I hope that is a good sign. I haven't gotten bored yet if they are getting hot and cold flashes and that is really annoying but thank goodness Robby isn't here or I would be making him crazy. 1 min. I have the air conditioner up to 70° and the next minute I haven't up to 78°.
