day 5 post-surgery

So, today is what 5 days post-surgery. I'm not in much pain.. I took 2 oxy before going to a meeting tonight. Not sure I needed it, but am still in the mood for prevention. My stomach has just felt kinda queezy all day, and a bit yesterday.. Not quite nausea like I wanna make a mess, but just not happy in any situations (fed, not fed). On the happy note, I ate a super fatty meal (thai iced coffee and ~1c curry w/ coconut sauce) and don't seem to have any GI distress from it (no dumping syndrome). i didn't eat much of it, but at least I'm not afraid of the yummy leftovers. Was also nice to have the first dinner out with Aaron since we moved here (that I didn't have to be petrified of the labels).

On another note, I don't think all of my sutures are healing perfectly, though. Not terribly infected, but one is a little reddish. I tried to take a picture, will try again since the colors didn't look right.

post-surgery day 6

Today, I just feel tired. I woke up, sat in the couch and took like 3 consecutive 15 minute naps. I got more than enough sleep. Eventually, I went to the supermarket (bus both ways), got like 2 bags of groceries.. Now I'm home.. It is kinda hot outside. I was sweating on the bus (no ac). Part of me is paranoid I have a minor infection. The rest of me accepts that I just had surgery, it is hot outside, and it is even possible I'm going through minor opiate withdraw. No real fever, last night I was like 99.6, but I was 'normal' today (fever = 100.4+ or something). Maybe I'll just try a few more naps. maybe even eat something other than chocolatey granola bars.
