Taking It Easy

Well, recovery is going fine. I'm taking it easy so everything will heal quickly. Yesterday I had a too long of a gap between taking pain killers and was reminded that I am indeed healing from a minor surgery. ouch.

The pain isn't worse than my monthly cramps (yes, they have always been awful..), but, as my husband said, wound healing is more serious than menstrual cramps and I need to be careful. I keep thinking of men who undergo vasectomies and think they can just up and continue on with their life only to be in worse pain a few days later because they pushed to hard. We've heard a couple of those stories and I don't want that to be me.

So, I get dressed and then do a couple of things before sitting down to watch a movie or read a book. Then I get up and do something else small if I need to. I have a hard time making myself not do too much, but I know I'll be glad later if I allow my body to heal now.

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hope you have a restful day and a quick recovery!!! :)

  2. Glad you are doing better. Do take it easy!

  3. I had an uncle who had surgery for a hernia and did too much too soon. He was in misery for months, they had to do surgery again - he couldn't even sit down. Listen to your body and your doctors.

  4. definitely some good books to enjoy while you are healing. Have you read The Hunger Games series? It's fantastic! Nevertheless, I hope you are pain-free very soon.

  5. You are smart to take it easy while healing Leah. Praying for your quick and complete recovery.
