I am four days post operation and I have so much respect and love for my husband. He has been so helpful and sweet the past few days. I honestly don’t know how anyone has surgery without someone there to help take care of them. He has made sure I am taking my medication, eating, getting enough rest, and today he even helped me wash and condition my hair with minimal complaining. ❤ I am one lucky lady!
I am excited to go to my post op appointment on Friday to see when I can stop wearing this band. But until then I have plenty of books to read and movies to watch for school. In the past four days, I have gotten through two books already and absolutely loved them! If you are ever in need of a good read you should definitely check out Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann. I am interested in finding the movie as well, but I’m not a big fan of older movies so I’m not going to get my hopes up for it. The second book I read was based on a TEDx Talk given by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It’s called We Should All be Feminists. Shockingly, I loved it! It really breaks down the idea of feminism and gets rid of the feminazi stigma.
Anyway, surgery went well. I think everything is healing the way it is supposed to. I’m only in a little bit of pain, it’s not nearly as bad as I expected. I don’t have to wear compression socks anymore, which is nice; those things are so dang hot! I even got out of the house today (and put on makeup) and took the boys to Kids World while Tyson went into the city to do some work. 🙂
I’m not going to lie, I’m going to miss being pampered by Tyson and getting to lay in bed and read. Maybe That’s what I’ll ask for Mother’s Day. Ahahaha 🙂
