Day 2: The Day After

Feeling a little better. Sorry for my pepperonis showing.

Today, I feel much better. Not so well that I want to get up and dance, but the pain is much reduced. I was able to sleep through the entire night, and even though I’m sleeping most of my days away right now, it’s very welcome to not have to deal with the discomfort.

Walks today are still a struggle with the pain in the lower abdomen. Strangely enough, however, I feel otherwise much better. My primary diet of cantaloupe and applesauce makes me feel so much better. I did have to get up a few times again today to get on my feet, and I always use those opportunities to go to the restroom. So far, it’s only been number 1; I dread when it’s time for number 2. I can’t imagine how I’ll be able to push to make that happen.

I’m less dizzy today than I was yesterday. I forgot to mention how nauseous I got yesterday that first time I stood up. The second time I stood up yesterday wasn’t nearly as bad. Today, I feel much better. The only part that really hurts now is when I have to get back into the bed. Then, once I’m laying down, the pain drops from a 5-6 to a 0-1.

Lunch today was a chicken and apple salad that Sherry makes, and it was wonderful. Dinner was stuffed flounder with asparagus. I watched the Astros game for a little while but had to turn it off as I was getting to tired to continue to watch. Hopefully, I can make as much progress tomorrow as I did today.
