Dear lord. I have slept and slept and I am still tired but I don’t want to sleep anymore. But I will. After a quick post.

There is an old wives tale that day three after surgery is the worst and I believe it. My whole body aches. If feels like I have the Flu but I know this is just more or less normal after surgery. I finally had the mother of all poops and god that felt good. I had been sleeping and woke up to the sounds of my husband having a bath and I though, “Oh, shit”.  Oh, shit indeed because I needed that bathroom. I girded my loins and did the slowest sprint ever to the downstairs bathroom. So I am no longer constipated but I do have a headache and my throat is sore and an upset stomach.  It feels like I have been wrestling with Hulk Hogan. This is probably why they kept you in the hospital for a week before now. Though I wouldn’t go there if you paid me because it seems you get sicker the longer your spend in there. Am I rambling? I am.

And I looked back at some of the comments I have left on your blogs and my grammar and spelling! oi!

When I left the hospital I was given all the leftovers in my room. They even gave me the box of Kleenex. Those sand paper White Swan brand.  Also,  9 pairs of mesh panties. What the hell am I supposed to do with 9 pairs of mesh panties?

OK, that’s all I’ve got. Sleep now.

  1. Wow, 9 pairs of mesh panties, must’ve been planning quite the party! Could make a “Get Well” banner, have enough for each letter!

    Ugh. Hate those tissues…

    Glad you pooped. Your description of wrestling Hulk Hogan reminds me of after BB was born-I was so sore everywhere! Places I had never felt before!

    Keep healin’ 🙂 We’re thinking of ya!

  2. Having a regular bowel movement is so important! I usually go once to twice a day, and I feel great. However, if I am constipated I feel sluggish and cranky, not to mention bloated. Get all the rest you need, Birdie, and take good care of yourself. Love and hugs to you.

  3. So I guess the mesh panties aren’t like, sexy?
    You need sleep. Take it. Don’t feel guilty. Your body will tell you when it’s time to start being more active.

  4. I suspect those mesh panties would make good scouring cloths. Or could be filled with bird seed and hung from a feeder. Or put in stranger’s letterboxes…
    Rest while you can.

  5. Ah, the mesh panties. I remember those from when I had my kids. It sounds like you are doing great even though you don’t feel great which is normal after surgery.
    Maybe you could use the panties to hold onions or other veggies?

  6. Sleep my dear, it will help you heal. Here in the U.S., I think that if you don’t take home half your hospital room, how could they justify over charging your insurance company.
