It's been a good week. Thank you all for your well wishes and encouragement! I've been home from work recuperating from my surgery. Saturday and Sunday were not great but I've been getting better every day since. I can sleep on my left, right and on my back. Stomach is still a little sore, but I don't need to sleep on my stomach. I have just minor pain when I cough, yawn or burp (which I seem to do a lot) and when I twist or move my middle too quickly like when getting up from a sit or laying down.
So what wonderful things have I done with a full week to myself? I'm ashamed to say, not much. I really have been resting and recuperating. I have watched three movies; Pride and Prejudice (which is 5 hours long), Mulan (yes, the Disney kid movie) and then The Help. I had read the book several months ago, and finally got around to renting the movie. I've also watched countless hours of mindless TV (why does anybody watch Steve Wilko or Maury Pauvich?). I've read one book called Same Kind of Different as Me which is the story of a homeless black man and a rich white man who become best of friends - it's a true story and made me cry.
I feel like I should have created a masterpiece or written a book! I've had so much free time! But I did do what the doctor advised; rest and recuperate and with that I've been successful!
