So tired

I’ve just signed in to my blog this afternoon.
Everyone warned me, but I honestly had no idea I would feel so tired after doing so little.
I’m exhausted after just going to the loo!

In myself though, I’m feeling OK , just frustrated at not being able to do what I’d like and the effort it is to type as I can’t get the angle right and so keep hitting the wrong key!

Had another good night’s sleep last night though, Maggie curled up beside me but not crowding my space.
Hubby is drained, and I hate putting this extra strain on him. MSM continues to be a gem and we are getting there, all be it slowly. Still better that than rush it and end up back in hospital.

75ml in the drain today, so obviously I am more mushy than anticipated, so drain and dressing will come off together on Monday. That will be great because I’ll have more flexibility and movement without the worry of sitting on my ‘cable’Β  or getting tangled up.

Sadly I’m just not up to challenges today, but will respond to your comments and good wishes. Thank you all.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Take it easy. As frustrating as it is, when like this, it’s just to take it easy. You will soon be back to your pace. Just not right now.
    It’s frustrating when you can’t hit the right keys when typing too which I think can make you feel tirder for trying.
    Let sleep come and hopefully make you feel a little refreshed. Xx

  5. One day at a time. Rest and let the healing begin. πŸ˜• πŸœπŸ€πŸ΅πŸ‘΅

  6. Dear Di, just rest. Your body has been through a lot. We will all be here. You just need to rest. 😍 😘

  7. Rest and heal. The other stuff can wait. I’m thinking about you today and cheering you on! Now go have a nice cup of tea and a nap. Happy Halloween from across the pond!

    Good to hear from you so you just rest

    Just sit and read for a bit. Nuthin wrong with that! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ

  10. Rest well. Your body is recovering from a major trauma, plus the after affects of anesthesia. πŸ¦‹πŸ’•πŸ¦‹

    • Apart from my lumpectomy in 2016, I’d never had surgery before this. Knocked me for six, but I’m sensible and listening to my body and doing what I’m told!

    Rest! Don’t feel like you need to get stuff done! Surgery in itself is exhausting. Anesthesia always knocks me out for a couple days til it fully gets out of my system! Snuggle with Maggie and your hubby and heal! ❀

    Don’t listen to your mind, Di… It never gets tired. Your heart knows best…

    Your body has gone through so much Di. It is major trauma, so not surprising you are so tired. Just let it relax as I know you are doing. Soon you will be back to your okd self. It is so frustrating though. Restwell Di. Take care. Lots of love to you xxxx

  15. Fandango says:

    Just focus on feeling and getting better. We’ll all still be here.

  16. scifihammy says:

    Being so tired is just your body’s way of letting you heal, frustrating as that may be.
    As long as you are moving in the right direction, you’ll get there in the end.
    All the best πŸ˜€
