Been MIA but recuperating after surgery

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Hi guys! Summer has come to Tucson with a vengeance and I guess that is my excuse for not realizing I was running a temp after surgery. Sure enough I had some troubles and have been out of commission but on the mend and impatient to get back in gear. Im hoping to be better about getting on but have some traveling to do for work and my sister is retiring soon so not sure how much time I will have. Have not been doing great with no exercise and feeling bummed about it, but hoping to get back on track before long. Hope everyone is doing well and will check back in when I catch up with everything!

    Take care of yourself.

Don't push to hard. Sounds like your body still needs time to recuperate.

    It is always going to take a bit longer to heal after surgery than you expect it to. Just keep trying to take it easier on yourself and make sure your nutrition is really good. Infections are troujblesome and wear us down further and make healing more complicated.
I had an infection for almost two years after a surgery and it really caused a great deal of difficulty in my life. I'm so glad it is over. Don't let that happen to you. Listen to your body and get plenty of sleep. emoticon

Preparing for another week

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Hello! I have been slowly improving and hoping to be feeling more myself this week since Im going back to work again. I think I will really miss all the naps I have had time for since surgery and know my cat will miss the company. I had great plans for what I would do with my week off but sadly I didnt get any of it done...sigh! Oh well, that wasnt the reason for my time off so guess I shouldnt feel too bad, eh? so will spend the rest of the day catching up on my chores and then get to bed early so Im well rested for my first day back. That's the plan anyone, not to see if I can actually manage it. Thanks for my friends who have come by to lend their support and wish me well!

    Hopefully, you'll have a place you can put your feet up and close your eyes for 10 or 15 minute power nap around lunch. That will do a lot towards helping re-charge for the rest of the work day.

    You still are healing for awhile, so please do not push yourself too hard. It takes time for the body to really knit itself and right itself back to where you need to be. Not sure what sort of surgery you had, but that's true no matter what it was. It just takes time to really get back on track. Be kind to you. emoticon emoticon

Tough day yesterday but improving

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I have to say I had a tough day yesterday as a work event had me at work for 5 hours yesterday but folks were good about having me take things easy and though I was wiped out it was great to see things come out well. Will be logging my nutrition in today and hope I dont forget anything. Im still tired but off for two more days and then only a half day on friday so another weekend to recuperate. Will try and make my blog rounds today...thanks for everyones support!

A friend sent me this email this week and wanted to share it with my friends...

Reminds me of you!

She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens. She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying. She cries when she's happy and laughs when she's afraid. Her love is unconditional. There's only one thing wrong with her. She forgets what she's worth!

Pass this to every beautiful woman you know. Remind her that she's
unique. I love you girl.

So tell ten crazy ladies you love them and make their day, Including me, and have a great day!

    A person recovers so much better at home & in their own bed.

Hope you are feeling better everyday!

    I'm glad things went well. Hospitals were never meant to sleep in. They are about healing, but rest isn't one of the things you can do.

Glad you are home and hope you continue to heal.

Had a productive day

Saturday, March 31, 2012

I had a great day today. Started off bright and early even though I slept in just a bit. Jumped on the roof (yeah, maybe jumped is facetious) but did get up there and got my cooler panels off and the until cleaned up. Went to hospice and met a friend for a healthy lunch then back home to clean up and paint the panels. After a little too much sun, it got to 91 degrees today and I had to lay down and rest. Ended up napping a couple hours but must have needed the rest. Had a light dinner and will be going to get ready for bath and bed. Hope folks had a good day!

    Climbing on roof? Doesn't sound fun at all. Hope you didn't get too much sun and you feel good now.

    What a workout! On the roof? You have solar panels? cooling? Like a swamp unit?

Sounds to me like you earned that nap in spades!
