I'm 3 weeks post op today. I should be driving and pain free and even exercising. But I am doing none of those things. Why? Because I'm SO SICK!! I got what I thought was the cold going around, but after spending the night in the ER I actually have severe Bronchitis. What fun! NOT. It sucks. I feel worse than dirt. My chest is rattling and I have a cough that would scare small children. I was so dehydrated that they poured fluids into me. Not a fun night. So I'm hopefully on the road to recovery once again but slowly again.
I am also tired of being exhausted. I'm just wiped out if I do much. I know that I can expect this to remain for 3 months or so, but...I want my energy back! When my last incision closes up finally I can swim and take baths again. I have big plans for a water aerobics class. But I have to get well first! I know people are sick of helping me. But...Jeff is gone and I still need help! What can I do? It is frustrating to me as well. If only Jeff were here. I am having such a hard time with this. I will say that I have found that I have friends who are just gifts from heaven..They come over twice a day to help me change the gauze in my incision, drive me to the doctor, and even take me to the ER and stay with me until 3 in the morning. Thank God for them!
