Post op day 2 is not so great. I've stopped taking the pain meds because they have been making me so nauseous and dizzy that the sickness they are causing is not worth it and I would rather deal with the pain. So I'm hoping I can make it on just extra strength tylenol and ibuprofen. An hour into the first dose and so far so good. The nausea however, refuses to take a hike. I have spent the entire day in bed so far. I know this is what I "should" be doing to get well, but it wasn't really part of my plan.
In better news, I've heard I'll be able to get my drain out tomorrow or Saturday - just waiting on the doctor to call back with details. That will feel much more comfortable I'm sure. It'll be great to have it out for obvious reasons, but also because I have not been able to interact with the boys at all. I have been so scared of them grabbing at the tube (the first thing Asher did when he saw me) that I haven't gone very near to them. Of course I don't look like myself so they want nothing to do with me, and even look a bit scared when I come near them. Can't say I blame them! Asher literally turns away from me when he sees me; Nolan at least tentatively reaches out for me still. Rio on the other hand has been all over me. She is loving her little nurse role, and although she is keen to keep my neck covered, nothing makes her happier than to check on me and give me rubs and kisses and make sure I'm ok.
Here's hoping I'm at my worst today and once this nausea sorts itself I'll start feeling better.
