Not feeling great
Thursday, July 09, 2020
Yesterday afternoon I started getting shooting pains along the incision on my stomach from surgery, and the incision was very messy when I changed my dressing last night. It hurts again this morning, and at some point I need to decide whether or not to call the doctor about it. He said to call if it gets too painful, but it isn't unbearable, so I guess I'll see what happens today.
Other than that I feel tired today, but it is raining and rain always makes me sleepy. I think I m going to do the minimum of getting out of bed, and see if maybe walking around less helps the incision to heal. I still plan on making all three meals for myself, but they won't be a ton of work. I know that eating nutritious meals is going to help me heal, so I'm going to keep eating them.
It is hard not to feel a little down, though. Yesterday it was nice to be able to get a lot of things done, even though I didn't finish my to-do list. There are some things I can do without getting up, like make my recipe and grocery list for next week, look for a wedding dress (!) and read, which I've been meaning to do anyway, but my mind hasn't wanted to settle down enough to let me do lately. It doesn't have to be wasted time.
In other news, I hope the heavy rain doesn't kill my basil seedlings. We desperately needed the rain after an unusually dry spring, so I'm glad it is raining. I just hope the seedlings survive.
