August 15, 2012 - Post Op Day 2



Dave brought our Scrabble set with him this morning.  We started a game and then finished it this evening.  Started another one which we will can carry over to tomorrow.

I was tickled that I got 4 consecutive hours of sleep last night, took a stroll in the early morning and then had a wee nap before Dave’s morning visit.  I would say that today I have definitely been out of bed more than I have been in, and that’s a good thing.

Still nothing by mouth except ice chips, but hopefully that will change soon, perhaps tomorrow.  It will happen when my body is ready, so no rushing things.

I confess I did have a wee 45-minute or so nap this afternoon after being up a lot.  Did this just a bit before Dave’s arrival this evening which was fine, because I was ready to walk and sit in the chair for continuation of our Scrabble fest. 

I have also been able to cut back considerably on the pain med, although I am by no means suffering.  If I feel I need it, I ask for it.  I’m sure I’ll get a dose later tonight to help me sleep.  Pretty good, I think, for my 2nd day out from surgery.

From Rachelle

These arrived this afternoon from my friend Rachelle and there’s a balloon attached that says, “To cheer you!”  We met working at Exxon back in “the day” and have been BFF for a loooong time.  Thanks, Rachelle!  They did cheer me up!

Well, I have a couple of phone calls to make and then it may well be time for a walkabout, so I’ll say good-night.

“Unity is strength.  Knowledge is power.  Attitude is everything.”

Thanks for stopping by!
