Just a quick update. I’ve been feeling a bit better each day, but I am still taking painkillers round the clock and having trouble getting in and out of bed and chairs. This surgery was quite a bit more difficult than my previous laparoscopic one, probably because of the location. The first night home I slept on one of those wedge pillows and getting out of bed was really hard. Last night I was able to use my regular pillow. I have been using my cane to give myself a boost out of bed. I also have switched from two pain pills at a time to just one. My mother in law or mom have been here since I got home from the hospital because we have needed lots of help. I’ve been taking lots of afternoon naps. Wednesday a few former coworkers brought lunch and we had a nice time. Also while the kids haven’t shown me much mercy, they have been especially gentle near me.
