bad blogger

I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger the past few days and haven't been commenting. I promise I'll get back on track tomorrow.

The recovery is moving along. Sometimes I feel like I'm taking two steps forward then one step back. Bending is impossible, but squatting works. There are still massive air bubbles in my chest that will not go away. Yesterday the goal was to get me to, um, "go" number 2 and we succeeded (thanks to prune juice), but no luck today. And the vaginal bleeding has gotten heavier instead of lighter, but that could be because I'm moving around a lot more. 

My plan is to go back to work tomorrow since I sit at a desk all day. Driving is going to suck. As most of you know, I commute a longggg way to and from work; I'm in the car for a total of 3 hours a day. I'm going to bring a comfy pillow for my belly that will hopefully make the ride more bearable this week.

I hope that your drive isn't too torturous tomorrow! I used to have a super long commute so I can totally relate to that. I hope you're feeling better soon!!

Uggggh, that's a long time in the car! I hope it will be much less time when you get into your new place.

Hope the day back at work tomorrow isn't too bad and recovery keeps moving along.

Good luck tomorrow. I'll be thinking about you. Could you take an, um, ice pack to sit on maybe?

If you have one, use a heat pad on your stomach... it really helped me get the air bubbles out and it definitely helped with some of the pain. That would also make for a more comfortable commute :)

Sorry to hear you're still having some discomfort. Hopefully just a few more days before you're feeling 100%. Take it easy on yourself...hope the long drive goes ok tomorrow.

I hope you continue to get better and better. If you're feeling bad after work and don't want to make the drive you can stay at my house! =)

I hope that you are feeling better. Recovery after surgery is difficult. Make sure to take it easy. Your body needs it and so does your mind after the surgery.
