Wish i had better news to share, but i just don’t right now. Since i have returned from the hospital, i have been holed up in my room, barely able to get out of bed except to go to the bathroom every hour, on the hour, day and night. Meals and drip bags are brought up to my room, as i just lie here. I’m afraid to move; when i do, there is this sharp pain in my abdomen, and i don’t know if it is normal. The doctors here just say it’s gas and part of my healing process from the surgery. It still scares me, though. They put me back on a liquid-only diet… which is fine because it hurts my stomach every time i try to eat anyway. I wish i could just sleep through this, but sleep has eluded me for several days now. I can’t sleep, can’t shower, can’t dress myself … All i can do is lie very still on my back and hope no sneezes, coughs, or bowel movements need to happen for a while.
Traveling this weekend is going to be an experience. I just keep thinking of my sweet pets waiting for me at home, and that helps.
