I’ve made it a week since the hernia repair surgery in my abdomen.
This is definitely not as bad as last time; I didn’t even come home from the hospital last time until Post-Op Day 9 (if I remember correctly). My sleeps have not been well-regulated this time; most nights sleeping a couple hours at a time, then being awake a few hours. I’ve tried a couple times to go to bed, but it was hurting too much to try to sleep on the bed, so I’ve been mostly napping here on the couch. I think tonight I will try to start out on the bed and see how long I can make it.
The only physical activity today was taking the trash to the street for collection, and I used the hand truck for that, not carrying the trash can to the street. It’s been difficult for me to just be still and do practically nothing. I don’t like this.
Even with messed up sleeping and eating I have tried to stay mostly on schedule for my meds and insulin. I had a late start this morning, so my mid-day meal was around 1:30, and my blood glucose was only 72! No wonder I was feeling so blaahhh. So I had a couple whole-wheat tortillas with peanut butter and strawberry preserves. Usually I skip the sweet stuff, but I figured I could have it today to get my sugar up a little.
Not much else to report, this has been such a nothing day.
