So today June 29th marks 43 days out til surgery! I am so freaking excited I added a countdown widget to the front of my Android Phone. Yep you read that right…it wasn’t enough that I blog about it day to day but I had to add a widget that counts down to the days/hours/minutes/seconds up until surgery! Call it what you will but it has helped to ease my mind quite a bit!
Any ways so today I woke up in not as much pain but I do still have some discomfort. It is mostly my back pain that hurts the most today. I think it has more to do with my bed needing to be replaced that my Endo or the Estrogen I am on. I do have scoliosis so I am sure that that combined with a hard/bumpy bed isn’t a great idea! Lately I have been extremely tired and falling asleep around 10 pm & waking around 10 am and still feeling tired! I know that it has a lot to do with my body not resting well.
Christina and I are still shopping for a few things for my home recovery post op. Things on our list for home recovery are sheets in a dark color in case I bleed from my incisions. As well as a new bed & pillows! I have been on Amazon looking at Lucid memory foam beds today & I found an amazing bed. Now I just have to find the cash for it! : ) We have also been talking about getting new bedding and pillows. A friend of mine told me about nomorerack and we found some great 1600 count sheets for under $40…amazing steal! I am hoping to be able to afford to redo our entire room before surgery! If not tax time isn’t too far off and I can always ask for gift cards for Christmas: )
The only bummer about today is that a close friend of mine came into town from North Carolina for a day. The kicker here is that I was too sick to even say yes to going out with her. That is the only thing about Endo & Chronic Pain that really gets to me. The lack of a life that I get to live! It has been more than a year and a half since I have seen a bar or friends. Yes I get to chat with them online but you will never see me in photos with my friends having FUN. I mean what is fun again?!
This is exactly why these next 43 days can not go by any faster!
Bring on a better quality of life!
