Through the first night and day home. And through the first therapy session. Barely. And 3 going on 4 sessions in the torture machine. The therapist said there is nothing wrong with setting it within my pain tolerance and slowly increasing it. M... Read more
I will survive this one way or another.
I made it pretty dang clear that I was not happy about that cpm and it being set so high last night.
When Dr came in we were discussing it, and he said he was the one who ordered it (I had been questioning it, I suspected it was that therap... Read more
CPM Right up there with Windows 8
Meaning they both really stink. They put me in a CPM for an hour this afternoon and I honestly thought I was going to die. It hurt SO bad, I laid there in tears. Hubs went and got my nurse and she brought ice packs and morphine. Thank God. Then ... Read more
What the? Already up.
Had to go potty, so didn't really have a choice. Not very steady on my feet this morning with the Ambien. I'm probably going to curl up and go back to sleep.
Since I was up, I changed into my santa jammies, they brought me my morning pain ... Read more
Vastly different this time
I'm not sure if I'm in this much more pain, or just that I'm being smarter and using pain meds more often. The pain seems to be a different kind, which I'm being told is normal.
I've been up for three walks. Down for 4 naps, up for all 3 m... Read more
I'm having a surprisingly good day. Some rough spots, needing some extra pain control. But overall, doing pretty good.
The occupational therapist said she's not going to bother coming back. It's a waste of her time and mine because I can d... Read more
Surgery is already done!
I am awake, in my room, drinking sips of water, and annoyed because Dr forgot to leave the order to let me out of bed and take the catheter out!
Had some nausea issues earlier, but getting off the oxygen helped. The smell from the tubing wa... Read more
Tomorrow's finally almost here!
And by this time tomorrow I will be in incredible pain, wondering what the heck I was thinking, and nagging the nurses to get me out of bed. At least that's the plan. I'm hoping it goes as well as the first one.
I'm pretty achy and stiff be... Read more
Not as hard today as expected...
Today was the second anniversary of my daddy's death. Last year I could barely drag myself out of bed. This year, I almost forgot it was today. Until I was registering at the hospital for my labwork and the lady wrote the date on the form. I jus... Read more
I can hardly wait!
I am back from the lab. Did my type/cross-match testing today in case I need a transfusion next week. I'm hoping not, but God's will, not mine. I've really been trying to hold on to that thought. Especially with all the ups and downs lately.

Yahoo! Everything cleared! I go in the morning for my blood type and cross match just in case I need a transfusion. Then Monday they said they will check the potassium again (they had me up my dose to 3x a day starting today) and run a pregnancy... Read more
Working out with Husband!
Okay, so the title is a little misleading. I worked out again today in the pool and he kind of floated around and kept me company again today. But considering he took me after his dermatology appointment for mulitple skin cancer removals, I'm no... Read more
White count is normal!! Hot diggity! But the potassium is still a little low. It is coming up though. 3.1 and it needs to be 3.3 so it's looking fair to middling. I should hear tomorrow afternoon. Maybe. Possibly. Hopefully.
I got hubs to ... Read more
Hubs did it again!!!
I was having a rough day, courtesy of the rat from hell and the teen. After the rather warm and fuzzy start, it was not good!
And the amazing, wonderful, incredible husband pulled another fabulous trick out. He gave me one of my Christmas p... Read more
I am comfortably snuggled under the blankets with Hubs, clicking away on the smartphone. TMI? Sorry. Too bad Read more
