3 Weeks Out

So it has been 3 weeks since my surgery. I have been feeling pretty good for the most part. I have to try to remember that I had major surgery and I am not going to be able to do things as quickly as I'd like. I can walk more easily now but not long distances and I can't really carry anything over 5lbs. I really miss working out. I know crazy, huh! I miss being able to bend and stretch without having to grab my left side presumably where my ovary is. The scab from the surgery scar is starting to go away too.

So what have I been up to the last 3 weeks? Nothing really. I have been waited on hand and foot by JJ, he has made me breakfast, snack(which is usually a yummy smoothie), lunch, snack and we have been brought dinner by our friends and family. For the 2 weeks after my surgery our good friends organized other friends to bring us dinner every other day. It was so nice and the food was gluten, dairy and nut free per our diet restrictions. We are so grateful to everyone who brought us food and visited. JJ has also been exploring his culinary skills and has done pretty well. I have been instructing him on what ingredients to use to make dinner and he has been a great sous chef! I have started making my own breakfast and snacks now, I even made dinner the other night. 

I have been watching a lot of Saved by the Bell on Netflix and reading blogs and Little Women. I have been working on a couple of more serious and deep posts and thinking of changing up my blog to brighten it up and add some fun stuff. I have gotten bored because of my lack of mobility but it has been nice to spend more time with JJ. I have been playing a lot of angry birds and candy crush on the iPad which are both addicting and frustrating games. I started studying for my final this week and it is nice to have something challenging to do that does not take much physical work. I will start seeing clients again starting on Saturday and see how it goes.

 I have been over using the phrase "they cut my ovary" or "they shoved a wire down my tube to unblock it" and giving JJ a sad face when I want to stay on the iPad longer than I should or just to get more sympathy. I know its bad and I am trying to break this habit. I graduated from sleeping on my back to sleeping on my side last week. I am a stomach sleeper so it was so uncomfortable for me to sleep on my back.  All in all the healing is going well and I am doing more on my own each day.

  5. I'm glad you're on the mend. And yay for sleeping on your side! I remember I was so excited when I could do that. (I also sleep a lot on my stomach.)

  6. I'm glad to hear that healing is going well. And that I'm not the only one that gets addicted to angry birds.

    Oh, and I give The Man a sad face at least once a week when he wants {his} iPad back...and I didn't just have surgery ;).

  9. recovery for me was mostly great despite having to have surgery. Friends and family really helped me out too. I beat a few video games, got a month off of work and was able to take a road trip towards the end to see more loved ones. Hang in there, the same surgery really helped me get better in my cycles and everything else. I have no regrets.
