I had planned on making a post right now bringing everyone up to date on the happenings of my life. For those who follow me on FB know that I had surgery on Tuesday to have my tonsils removed, as well as my deviated septum fixed. Well I'm up right now because I was almost an hr and a half late on my pain meds, and am paying dearly for it now. I'm staying with my mom and her husband so she can help me out with medication time, however through no fault of her own it looks like she overslept and hence I almost missed a dose. I've offered to help by setting an alarm for myself but she had wanted me to sleep. Waking up in pain and unable to say anything, or call for help isn't fun but I managed.

Now its almost been an hr since taking my pain med so I'm a little too loopy for a coherent post. I will update sometime in the near future, a lot has been going on.

Until then, back to my medicine coma.

-sorry if this didn't make much sense, I have a feeling I'll be laughing at it later.

Thank you for the hugs.

I've been thinking of you, girly- you and your family are in my thoughts. *big hugs to you* xoxoxo I know you're strong, and please let me know if there is anything I can do.

I practice "field medicine", the stuff to keep you alive until I can pawn you off to someone else at a hospital, so, 'long term' skills aren't my area of expertise. However, one thing we stress to people is to do like you're trying to do. Take pain meds on a schedule. Don't necessarily take "as needed". Pills don't offer immediate relief.

Enjoy the daze and stay doped up until your body tells you its better (it will let you know)

Thank you! It took over a week to feel normal, and even right now I'm still not 100%. I've also picked up some horrible bruises while in the hospital that aren't healed yet, so I think I'm just a slow healer in general.

I've been back at work since Monday, and I'm just glad its all behind me.

Take care!

PS- Thanks for practicing "field medicine", you do make a difference in many lives and thank you for what you do.
