I am....almost better!

It's been about 4.5 weeks since the surgery. Most of the pain is gone. I still get stabbing pain usually centered around my nipples, as the internal tissue damage heals up, and nerves that we cut slowly reconnect. I never realized just how irritating wearing a bra 24/7 is when you've had to do it for 4 weeks straight. It's required to provide the necessary support while everything heals into the proper shape. In that time, I've had 5 migraines (all weather related). Which is a darn sight better than one every day for the 5 weeks before the surgery.

I attended the Faery Fest with DH & Moppet (located in Guelph) and we had a great time. I have a leather corset purchased at a local (now defunct) RennFest. It provided amazing support and I was comfortable in it. I'd be tempted to wear it non-stop, if it wasn't so BLOODY HOT!!! *grumble b*tch complain*

Cast on (and frogged) the Goddess Anniversary Mystery Shawl about 20 times. Still haven't finished clue 1. However, I'm ALMOST done DH's socks. But I've misplaced the first one, and until I find it, the sock will hibernate. I've started socks for Moppet (knee highs out of "Not Just Socks for Kids") yesterday and I'm almost to the heel flap. Since they're being made out of superwash wool, they'll be for when the cool weather comes. Which definitely won't be happening for a couple of months.

I am...sore

It's been a week and 2 days since my surgery. I have been to one follow up appointment (everything is healing nicely and I can shower again WOOT!), one emergency doctor's appointment (my body did NOT like the antibiotics perscribed and gave me rampant diarrhea for 48 hours) to change my meds. He also confirmed that I was healing nicely. AND my period decided to arrive. A week early. My poor, sore tummy!

My husband lost his job (wasn't a "good fit") on the day of my surgery. So he's been around to help out. But he's not earning any money. Which makes it a little difficult to pay bills, since I'm out of commission for the next couple of weeks.

I've spent most of the last week of convalescence surfing the internet on my laptop until my wrists rebelled, knitting up a wrap sweater for Moppet, and trying very hard not to whine too much. Or make my hubby want to strangle me. *sigh*

On a happier note, like I said, I'm healing nicely. And The new antibiotics are helping, rather than kicking the sh*t out of me. And I can actually spend time downstairs in living room rather than holed up in my bedroom going stir crazy.

So, how was YOUR week? ;-)
