I know I'm not... but my poor neglected blog would say otherwise.
Life has not lent itself to blogging, although I've spent my share of time around the house. I am now 2 1/2 weeks post-surgery (3 weeks on Wed) and am feeling really good. I have to admit, I expected the recovery to be much faster than it was. I know, I know... I heard it from everyone: "You just had surgery! Give yourself time." There is something about a laparoscopic outpatient procedure that makes me feel like I should have just bounced right back. Apparently, that's not the case. I was very grateful for everyone's input - the advice of those who have had the surgery as well as all my RN friends was amazingly helpful.
I am happy to be back to the land of the eating... without pain (!)... but even more excited to be back to a somewhat regular activity level. I did not realize how different I would feel - after 6 months of that "normal." The pursuit of a new "normal" is still in progress, but at least it's progress.
Despite being a bit more tired than usual, I'm back to work, back to housekeeping, back to running kids all over, back to yard work (slowly...) - and, hopefully, back to blogging. But, let's not go crazy.
