Well, 15 days really.
I am 99% off the Percocet, and I have a few tablets left. I’m not being a hero, I’m still taking ibuprofen but only when it’s not “stinging/burning in the incision” pain – because let’s face it, pills won’t help with that, so why take them?
I’ve had some ups and downs but as long as I take frequent rest breaks I’m doing okay.
I am wearing clothes* – and it’s amazing how good that feels. Socks still cause me issues, but the hus-creature is helping me out there.
I even took my binder off yesterday to sleep, and I’ve not put it back on!!!!
Yes it stings a bit so I’m monitoring and assessing, but it had gone from “oh my goodness I love this and I am never taking it off” to scratchy and irritating so we are seeing how we go.
I even managed to make the kids some lunch yesterday!
Our weekend was lovely. From Friday to yesterday we had a visit from the lovely Diana who has been momma’s friend for years 😁
So on Saturday they both went into Boston to do the tourist thing and paint the town red.
Sadly the duck boat wasn’t an option because of frozen rivers – it’s still bloody cold here.
They didn’t get home til after 9 ok – dirty stop outs 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
I kid, I kid, I was actually thrilled mom got some decent time to enjoy herself free from my kids and in adult company.
We all had a lovely time, and I’m hoping she will visit again in the summer 👍🏻😁
There was actual snow on Sunday – mom has been looking forward to big snow. It’s mostly almost melted again already.
Today they children have been playing nicely together.
This is #1 Son showing TT that his Halloween mask isn’t scary 💕💕💕
He is on schoool holidays for the rest of the week – send gin!!!
No, he’s been amazing, and is actually doing some reading and writing practice.
We have discovered if we
reward bribe him with chocolate/candy after a certain amount of work he is much more receptive – whatever works!!!!
TT is being stubborn about potty training, but we will get there!
*Nothing fancy – just leggings and a t-shirt but hey, it’s clothes
One thought on “Two weeks post-op”
I really think it’s more than bribing Nathan regarding his reading. He responds to a different method of teaching than what we think he gets here. However…. whatever works. He has finished his first reading book and so it will continue….
