and to think I almost ordered the fried brownie with icecream and whip cream for dessert after dinner tonight! DUH
I did call the drs office today and left a message that I want him to write a script for massage therapy and ultrasound. I had some more pain today, but I was a little tense and it was crappy weather too. We'll see. I figure that I will have to evaluate my pain once I am at work again. I know if I need to take a break and lie down in a ADL room for a few I can. That is the one good thing about working for a hospital-They understand when it comes to healing from major surgery. I have that atleast working for me, plus they all know me and have for many many years. I am lucky to have support not only at home but at work too. I still don't have a start date yet, still hoping for April 1, or around there. It will be nice to have regular insurance again too, not COBRA. If I get into LPN school, I will work maybe part time, and they have okay'd that already. But, we'll have to see. I need to really focus on school. My health, school, then work as far as pecking order (family is right there with health). I have been doing my aerobics along with ab work now for about four days. I have to make sure I dont jump around, but I do work up quite the sweat. It is horrible when I take my brace off though-you'd think I had been sitting in a tub from the waist up to my boobs-my tshirt is SOAKED. But, it does feel so good to get up and moving. I just really really wish I could take some Motrin. I go somedays thinking I don't need any percs, then days like today, I had to take three! I have to remember, just b/c I have hit the three month mark, that doesn't mean all pains should be gone by now. I have to remember, a year to eighteen months, give or take. I can't wait to get my next set of xrays though!
