I'm coughing quite a bit from the breathing tube that was in my trachea during surgery. Drinking tons of water, mainly to soothe my sore throat and also to help get things moving, if you know what I mean ;) I'm trying to stay away from the narcotics and just take OTC medication for the pain. I absolutely hate the horrible things narcotics do to the body! My bedside table is stocked with my favorite things... sweet cinnamon pumpkin body lotion, vanilla lip balm, and the best ever candle from B&B works! My room is feeling and smelling like autumn, even though the outside temperatures don't!
I'm expecting my parents to come for a visit this weekend to bring my favorite Mexican food! This is the very first time that I got my appetite back right away after surgery, so I'm really enjoying eating! I'm not allowed to get out of bed without help, and I can't bear any weight for at least the next 4 weeks! But I'm hopeful that it will be worth it and I'll be back on my feet soon. I am SO ready to walk again!
Well, I'm pretty tired, so I'd better go. Feel free to come visit anytime!
