Frustration

Well, once again we have a Big Money vs Ordinary Citizen issue raging across the country. Please read up on Net Neutrality if you aren’t familiar with it, and then call or email your Congressman and tell them to get on the right side and reverse the recent overturn of regulations. People hate big government. I get that, but sometimes government is the only way to stop Big Money from gobbling all of us up.

Day One: The drugs they give surgery patients are crazy. How it erases your memory is fascinating and beyond my comprehension. After surgery, I remember waking up and the next thing I know I’m home. I couldn’t remember getting dressed or going down the elevator. Crazy. Also crazy are the pictures they take while they’re inside the patient (laparoscopically) and they sent mine home with me. Crazy but also rather fascinating. I can’t wait for my follow-up appointment so the doc can explain what everything in the picture is.
I didn’t tolerate the drugs well that they gave me for pain, so I went off of them right away. They gave me a headache. Laying down and sitting back in a recliner are painless, getting up, however, is the tough part. I am sore and I desperately hope I don’t sneeze. I also don’t like how my throat feels, but I know this will quickly pass. In and out and over with after three months of worrying about it. I especially Love that this experience is in the rear view mirror!

Day Two: Hopefully, in a few days I’ll be up for driving to the store and picking up the menu items I need for Christmas dinner. I walked to the mail box and had to stop and breathe through it a couple of times, so I’m not there yet. Feel pretty good though.

Day Three: I’m going bonkers. I’m sick of TV; I’m sick of reading; I’m sick of my art project; I’m sick of being in the house. I certainly hope tomorrow goes better. If I could get back my motivation to write, it would help, but so far that has eluded me. Maybe tomorrow. Sorry – I just had to vent. Surgery sucks.
