Today has been rough.
Everytime I think I’m doing well, I end up taking a step back. Please don’t think I’m throwing a pity party, asking for attention, or asking for encouragement to be thrown at me every which way. I will gladly accept all prayers, encouragement and love that you all send my way.
Last night I slept really well. So well, in fact, that I did not wake up once to restart my pain medicine. When I woke up around 4AM, I all the sudden couldn’t breath and was begging my nurse to get me something (I’m in tears at this point). He gave me a medicine called toradol…it helped for the time being.
All day i had pretty consistent pain. They took my morphine away and make me walk a lot and work on something recovery related that i probably should have been able to do yesterday.My nurses got on to me quite a bit.
Oh! I ate a solid today… mashed potatoes… normally I’d go crazy for mashed potatoes but they really didn’t sit well or taste good. Back to chicken broth! Yay! It is actually very tasty so don’t feel too bad for me. Anyways, thats about it for today!
Love to all!
