Happy Labor Day weekend

Well. I survived the surgery. I have been through an awful lot in the last few days, including complete incoherence, vomiting, the inability to stay awake and/or lucid, intense pain, crazy muscle spasms that made me cry or woke me up in the middle of the night, and more. My leg is wrapped up in a bandage and I have no idea what things look like under there. I haven't been able to shower yet, but my husband and I realized last night that he could wash my hair in the sink, and it was pure heaven.

I don't have anything exciting talk about unless anyone wants to hear about leg stretching or what to do for fun when you are stuck in bed or on the couch all day.

I'm really looking forward to IVF now - I feel like if I can handle knee surgery, I can handle anything. And my husband has been awesome, making sure I am comfortable, preparing amazing meals that I can only force myself to eat a bite of, cleaning up after me, getting me barf bags, washing my hair(!), getting up in the middle of the night to get me water and help me to the bathroom. He is SO AWESOME. I'm so lucky. Even if I never get pregnant, I know I'm so incredibly lucky to have this wonderful guy who obviously loves me so much.

Have a good rest of the holiday weekend!

  8. Sending you healing vibes for a quick recovery. You're so active it must be a chore for you to hang out on the couch (personally I'd think that was heaven!) Keep that positive attitude - fingers and everything else is crossed for you!

  10. I'm so glad you're on the mend! Bless your heart, I'm so sorry about the nausea and the pain. What a sweet, wonderful guy you've got there!

    When I had breast reduction surgery I couldn't shower for a bit. When I could get around a little Mom took me to a salon and had my hair washed. It was the most wonderful thing ever!
