Feeling so much better!

I am glad that I am finally feeling better.  Yay!

The gas bubbles are gone for the most part.  I stopped taking pain pills on Friday.  I can sleep on either side. I am finally over wishing I hadn't had surgery.  I am still bloated. I have flucuated on weight. Lost 4 gained 2.  Decided I am not getting back on until my post op appointment on Tuesday. I still find it very hard to bend over or pick something up off of the floor. 

It felt so good to give my daughters a bath yesterday. First time since sugery that I felt like their mother. I have had a tremendous anount of help but I missed being the mother to my children. I have been alone since Thursday night and love it.  I have been lifting my daughters even though I am not supposed to.  I "think" I am only using my arms.  Lifting no more than ten pounds for weeks is a bit unrealistic when you have small children.

Ron and I went to a birthday party last night. It felt great to dress up and look better than I have in quite some time.  Ron was quite pleased with the results. I can't wait til we go to Vegas next month. I am already feeling better about myself and will definitely be feeling better physically since it will be 3 weeks post op. 

Hope to be back to the blogging world. 

Have a great night all.
