It seems odd that as I sit here and type this… I can’t think of a single subject to talk about. I am not a quiet lady and I almost always have something going on… but as of right now… my plate is empty. I have nothing going on but healing and that requires a whole lotta nothing. I’m bored.
I want to work on the house and move from Christmas into Winter mode but I am not aloud to lift anything so that has been out of the question. I have picked up a few small items here and there and taken them to the dining room table but really… I need to be able to get around properly to do this and I just can’t right now. My follow up appt. is on Wednesday and we will see how that goes. They told me no lifting for at least 2 weeks though… so I’m kinda stuck.
So how am I? I’m ok. In a lot of pain that I wasn’t expecting. They feed you this line that laparoscopy heals faster so it’s better. Um… for anyone who has ever had laparoscopy… you know that’s a line of bs. Instead of having one cut. I have three. And instead of having one area where my organs were touched and moved… my entire abdomen was violated.
They poke three long wands into you. One in the belly button, one in the left abdomen and one in the pubic area. and then they drive those wands through all your parts all the way over to the right side where they want to work on your appendix. I can feel the “lines” they ripped through to get to the right side on every port. OUCH. As is that alone isn’t enough trauma to the gut… they then pump you full of carbon dioxide and blow you up like a balloon… moving ALL your guts, organs, muscles. Super ouch. It’s all very unpleasant. I don’t recommend any of this. lol.
Mr. Primcat has been amazing. I can not say enough good about him right now. He has taken such good care of me through out all this. He deserves an award for best husband ever right now. I’m a lucky woman.
The Primcats are agitated with me. They are mad because they cannot just plop all over mom like they usually do. No more walking all over moms belly and making pushy pushy at their whim. And they are mad they are not getting picked up and loved 24/7. They all weigh well over my current pick up limit so they are all feeling very neglected. I feel bad… but if I want to get well I can’t be picking them up. They will just have to sit down there and meow at my feet until I’m better. I can’t help it.
So I’m starting 2012 out a bit of a funk to say the least. And I’m pretty bummed about that.
I do have an upcoming giveaway planned. So that’s coming up.
I also see I passed 300 followers sometime in the last week. So I would like to do something for that too.
I have surprise packages that didn’t get sent out in time for Christmas and were then again delayed by surgery… so I’ll be doing that hopefully in the next week or two. Depends on when I can lift again.
My birthday is coming up on the 18th (WooHOO THE BIG 35!) and we are thinking about a new couch. Ours is 11 years old and breaking down fast. I think a couch would be an awesome present.
I am also thinking Birthday giveaway! Woohoo! That would be happening real fast!
I still have presents to share from Christmas.
My Lasik surgery is coming up on the 26th too.
And then who knows what else 2012 will bring!
Lets just start with healing though.
I hope everyone has been having a great new year so far!
Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats
