I’ve actually been home since Thursday, but I’ve been too wiped out to do much of anything except sleep. The surgery went well—they got the whole kidney stone out and I’m already healing from the surgical wound in my lower back. My pain is under good control, I’m eating a little, and I’ve been taking in lots of fluids (even though everything tastes metallic due to this antibiotic I’m on. Bleah). I’m just tired and weak, and of course I’m mad at my body for acting like it’s 90 years old. I feel like I should be up and at ’em, and I’m just not there yet.
But surgery does take a lot out of a person, and I can’t expect to snap back as quickly as I did when I was young. I just hate feeling so sluggish that it’s a Herculean effort just to go to the breakfast table. So on that note, I’ll wrap up this post because I’ve been up for over 2 hours and my bed is calling my name again. I’ll be back when I’ve got more energy. 🙂
