Sinus Surgery – Day 6

1. Have discovered that adding a second kind of pain reliever is key to my comfort. It is so much better. Not pain free by a long shot, but much less intense. More like sinus infection level pain.
2. I made my own lunch today. Well, I started making it yesterday, did bits & pieces last night & this morning, then made it around 11am. Didn’t have energy to eat it til after it’d gone cold, but PROGRESS!!!
3. My parents are staying on two more nights. They’ll take kids to school tomorrow and attend meetings in my stead that night, then they’ll go home in the morning and I’ll be back to regular life on my own on Tuesday.
4. Tuesday scares me. While I’m upright most of the day now, I don’t have energy for dealing with anything yet. I have to sleep immediately after anything extra, like making food, or washing my face, or having a long conversation.

I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
