June 18: no puking today yet. I now have something to keep my attention on besides brain and pain… Portrait Commission. With four heads!! Plus my youngest is home for Father’s Day weekend. Yeah!
We went to dinner with youngest. I am now able to walk without puking- just not fast enough to keep up with hubby.
Got up today around 7. Had breakfast and passed out. It’s so fun to be eating one minute and then the next find your face in your plate!!
I think I’m having a hangover from the codeine. How long does it take codeine to get out of your system?
Today I get my stitches out. Also going to ask Dr. for wheelchair request. I’m supposed to go to my nephew’s wedding on the 24th and I’m pretty sure it will taking me 3-4 hours to walk around the airport and get to the terminal. So I’m going to try to get a rental. Then I can go touring around Colorado Springs without dying in the middle of the street!!
It really takes longer than 22 days to fully recuperate from surgery. My doctor had unrealistic expectations!
Didn’t get stitches out after all since they are dissolvable. My Dr.’s assistant knows nothing!!! I get to my appt at 2:00 and the ladies at the reception desk, who look like vogue models and have really high voices, told me my doctor is running an hour late. So, since I was already parked in paid parking, I said I’d wait an hour- (if they knew he was going to be an hour late, couldn’t they have called me??) Then, about 5 minutes later, the nurse called me back. I asked her about Dr. being late and she said “Oh he’s here!” I’m guessing that the vogue girls just hadn’t checked. Because why would they. Or the people in back never bother to inform them.
Tried to quit the codeine, but me head is killing me. I think I had like 3 -4 overnight.
June 15: Today I drove my car to the Marsh store and picked up lunch at McGiven’s Irish Pub. I had a cart to hang on to while strolling Marsh and I just used the wall and chairs to hang onto at McGiven’s. I think that is progress. Had to rest the rest of the day. My legs feel really weak, which I can’t figure out why that is since they didn’t have surgery.
I think I have a UTI. Probably from the catheter from surgery. Ugh.
Following the day of drug withdrawal, bizarre dreams and wacko symptoms, I have decided NOT to do drugs!! I want to get off the serotonin uptake stupid drugs I’m taking. May take awhile though. No more dreams last night, no more symptoms.
