Recovery

on December 23, 2006 - 8:03am

Well only a couple of more days until Christmas and I wish I felt better. This surgery really has taken a lot out of me. I can not sleep, because sleeping on my back just does not cut it and the pain just seems to be worse at night for some reason. I can not eat much, guess that could work out in my favor - I could stand to lose some weight. The pain meds make me either sick or sleepy, but have to take it so I can get better.

The neck brace makes me scratch and I still have no feeling under the chin, but can feel all the other pain for sure, and as far as the hip where they took the bone, well, talk about black and blue - more black then blue for sure and painful to no end. I will get through it. My hubby has been taking good care of me and today he is going to make me some ring tones from my AWAKE CD and I have to have O Holy Night on my phone also. Somehting to look forward to besides laying around and sleeping. I hope I cam make it until the end of February. Wow, so hare to sit still, I am usually the one person always busy. Something to get use to and it has not even been a week yet. I hope everyone is having a great Christmas Holiday and Josh is enjoying his time off now,he will definitely need it. I can not wait until St. Patrick's Day to see Josh in Atlanta!!!! I am definitely livign for that weekend.

Listening to Josh

on December 21, 2006 - 1:39pm

I feel really awful today, but Josh is lifting my spirits. I got home from surgery now, I am laid up until the end of February that we know of. Surgery was more intense then we thought. So I continue with the pain and yea, even cry. Listening to Josh does help. Woudl be so nice to hear from him, but I hope he is enjoying this time with his family.

Surgery

Well I am having surgery on the 18th and will be laid up for about 6 weeks and I plan to listen to Josh the entire time. I plan to pack all CD's in my case and my headphones!!! At least I can enjoy my Josh during this time. The nurses will have to pry the headphones off.
