Day 101

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Do any of you remember the show Hee Haw?? They use to do a song that describes my night last night and my day today. Sing it with me now..... emoticon "Gloom, Despair and agony on me. Deep dark depression and pure d misery. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Gloom, Despair and Agony on me" hahahahahahahaahaha

For anybody who tells you that this surgery is no big deal, just give them a dirty look and very wet Razz berry emoticon I have been up since they woke me up from my surgery yesterday. I was not allowed to take my sleep meds last night, so guess who didn't sleep?? My poor wittle Boo didn't get much sleep either, Waking up every time I moved the slightest bit or whimpered. Needless to say, we are both EXTREMELY exhausted! I have had surgeries in the past, generally no big deal.... this one is different! Whether it's the surgery itself or just that I am much older now, I am struggling to get through this. It hurts!! I haven't stopped hugging a pillow since I got home yesterday and for most of the day today, I was also hugging an ice pack!! This is pure misery!! I know it's only day one, so tomorrow will have to be a little bit better right?? UUUUUUUUUUUGH!

Anyway, I will stop whining and take solace in the fact that I will heal, slowly, and that this is all a part of me getting healthier for the rest of my life, not just tomorrow. I hope you all have a good night!! Thanks for listening to me whine, now I will go get some cheese to go with it!

HUGZ (very gently please)
