Two steps forward, I step back

I feel pretty rough today. I had hoped to be off the pain meds by now, but I just can't. The nurse at my surgeon's office very sweetly called me in another prescription since I'd used up what they sent me home with. She's such a nice lady - unlike some nurses I have had to deal with. I hated calling and asking. I am down to about two a day: one in the morning and one before bed. I try to remind myself that it was a pretty major surgery and my muscles are not going to be happy about being sliced and diced. I just hate being dependent - on anything. :)

A big shout out to the The Fixer from The Lot at Mother's Pride. You definitely brightened my day.

Don't run before you can walk. You've only been home a few days!

Patience is a virtue, you know!

I am the same as you...... hate to be dependent & wanting to be up and away.
Do take care though and try to relax & get plenty of rest. You have been through an ordeal but I;m sure you are on the mend. Don't worry about the pills, you need relief from the pain.

Give yourself time. So glad your mom is there - don't know what I would do without my mom! The tote bag is lovely, by the way.

Praying God will continue to heal you.
