Recovery

Came out of surgery on Monday afternoon and it was a horrible recovery.  From my recollection it was about 3pm, and as I was moving onto the ward bed, I threw up on myself twice, then later about 5pm when I managed to stand up and go to the loo, I vomited again.  Since then I have been feeling constant nausea and motion sickness.

Tuesday I came home – it was the longest ride home I have ever experienced.  I was barely able to move once I got home, and plonked myself on the couch in the hopes of some relief.  Had a couple of snoozes generally just let hubby look after me.  I begged him to stay with me Wednesday as well as I was barely able to move around the house without feeling like I was going to topple over.

So Wednesday morning I woke up and still felt that way.

On the up side I have been able to keep all my food down and I have been making sure I drink lots of fluids.

I am not feeling quite so dizzy today yet, but then I have only been awake for about 20 minutes.  I need to put ear drops into my ear as well which I will attempt in a few minutes.

Apparently I looked dreadful when I came out of surgery the other day and hubby was very worried about me, he has seen me on deaths door before from surgery and I think he gets really stressed when I don’t recover all that well from it.  I agree with him though 🙂 hehehe I hope he understands how much I appreciate his help the last few days.  It has meant so much to me.  I must tell him when he gets home tonight.

Thats enough from me, U am going to attempt breakfast and then ear drops…then no idea to be honest…I am sort of sick of laying on the couch watching movies, but it is all I am really capable of doing right now…
