Makin' Like The Swiss Cheese

Hi there! I'm still around! The surgery went fine, and I now have four small holes in my abdomen. I'm sore if I don't sit a certain way or carry myself carefully, but I haven't taken any pain meds since yesterday morning because I was sick of being so floaty all the time. Plus, although I'm tired, I've been doing so little physically that I'm having a hard time sleeping, too, and I think the perc wasn't helping in that department, either. Actually, I think that this afternoon I'm going to try to go on a small field trip with the family to the Music and Arts store to get Josie's violin for school orchestra, and then maybe to the Panera next door for food. That should be enough to wear me out for a nice nap without causing too much trouble, I think. I DO know I'm at that point where I'm so sick of the inside of my house that I'm about to scream, and I've seen more HGTV than one woman who can't really do anything should see, because now I'm full of ideas that are doing nothing but frustrating me since I can't do any of them! Not to mention, I'm seeing the house fall further and further into disrepair, and it's annoying me.

It turns out that it was good I didn't have to wait much longer for the operation, because my gb had a bunch of stones in it and was 'obviously diseased', according to the surgeon. Phew! I'm glad that's over.

So, I'm still not much good for anything in general, because I have a hard time concentrating, so reading isn't really working out, but I'm thinking that by tomorrow I'll be fine for that. So, I'm going to have a lot of blog reading to catch up on in a few days!!!

I'm glad you're out of surgery and off the meds, even! Good for you. Myself, I'm a little bit *fond* of the floaty feeling, which is exactly why I, too, have been trying to be judicious about the dispensing of my prescription. Don't want to become a suburban addict or anything!

Good luck on the mending!

I'm so glad everything went well! Like Desperate Housewife, I'm overly fond of the perc feeling. I would probably buy it on the street if I had the foggiest notion which street.

Glad the surgery went well. Ah, the joys of percocet- it knocks me out cold (not a bad thing). At least you're not chasing it with a little somethin' somethin'. Then you would have a problem. Rest up, heal fast.

Glad to hear everything went well! I really understand the feeling of getting all these great ideas from those shows and then not being able to do any of them right away. By the time I actually get around to something like that, Ive already changed my mind. Rest up, Im sure you'll be better in no time.

glad you're alright! Ah, the percocet. I weaned myself off the perc after I had baby C. It was a nice floaty feeling...
