Some Post-Op Drivel

Do you ever have one of those days when you just can’t think of anything meaningful to say? I am having one of those days.

I managed to get my sorry butt to the clinic this morning to have my stitches out. (I was like driving miss daisy, doing 40kph all the way there!) I am feeling much better now, still quite sore but not like my skin has been stretched and then sewn into place. (Well, it was.) I am still feeling sorry for myself, though, and the nurse who removed the stitches certainly didn’t help by saying that birth was much more painful than a couple of cuts and that I should be happy that I am not still bleeding and swollen. Nothing like a bit of empathy to make you feel better. The other staff there were very sweet though, and all of the comments on yesterdays post really helped as well. And I really am feeling better. Really.

Spare a thought for my sister who has a one month old baby, and had a gall stone op yesterday. Oh, and she has a touch of bronchitis. I DARE NOT cough after this op, so I am really feeling her pain right now.

The “cable guy” arrived yesterday to install our PVR, what a godsend… what did we do before this kind of TV? I got to watch ER, Desperate Housewives and Men in Trees. It definitely helped numb the pain 🙂

Geez I am really rusty at this blogging thing. You know what they say, “use it or lose it!” I will do my best to get my head right and get working on some quality posts – not this drivel.

    Sorry you’re still sore, and that the nurse was such a cow about it. Yes, it could be worse, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hurt!

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I hope you start feeling physically and emotionally better very soon – and those TV things are the Greatest!!

    Great attitude of that nurse. I’d be tempted to tell her, “Yes, and I’m sure if I bashed in your knee with a baseball bat right that would also be more painful, but that’s not really the point, now is it?”–then I might just smile sweetly.
