Recovery

I know I have severely neglected my blog! This has been one tough recovery from sinus surgery. They gave me an IV prednisone burst during surgery, and I think I was riding high on that for awhile. When that wore off, that's when things got worse. I also gained 7 lbs of fluid in 24 hours because of it. I'm slowly losing it, but it's taking time.


Yesterday was my worst day as far as pain and swelling. I could actually see my cheeks when I looked down. I now know what boxers feel like when they get punched in the face. I have been using my pain pills very sparingly since they didn't give me many.

I got out of the house for the first time today since I got home. It's sad when the most exciting part of your week involved Target and Rita's. LOL.

I have been invited by someone to be a guest blogger on their blog. They run a medical blog and have guest bloggers on there to to tell their stories and answer questions. I would have to do one post per day for a week, and I would be available to answer questions. How cool is that? I need to gather my thoughts and think about what I would say. I don't write well under pressure, but I do love telling my story.

Here are some random pics of Casey today. Yes, she still eats with her hands. LOL






I will try to get back to regular posting now. I've missed it.

Now that you have me hooked on Twitter, I may try to breathe life into my own blog.

You poor thing! Praying that you lose the fluid quickly and that the pain subsides soon. You are so inspirational, Christy!

That's great you were able to get out of the house and enjoy a little shopping.

I hate that the pain has been that bad for you! I wish docts didn't hold back on pain management when there IS pain going on. I'd give you some of my tramadol if I could. :)

Hope you lose the extra fluid quickly. That's miserable. I know that from experience.

And I know from experience what it's like for mundane trips to the pharmacy or Walmart to be exciting because you're out of the house! lol
