It is taking me a long time to shake off my post-surgery slump. Even though I took two days off from work to recover, I just have not been myself. I have been very tired and have had a headache since my surgery on Tuesday. When I woke up this morning, my head was pounding and I felt nauseous. I considered calling in sick. Sometimes, though, I feel better if I get up and get going than if I stay in bed. So, I went to work. I felt pretty lousy all morning, but mid-afternoon my headache went away and I started to feel better.
I am having a hard time getting accustomed to my new vision. My eyes don’t seem to focus together properly and I am having some double vision. I have absolutely no close focus at all. It is driving me crazy that I can not read the texts I receive on my phone. Every time I get a text, I have to ask someone what it says. In general, my phone is pretty impossible to use now. I have to figure out how to turn on the accessibility features, so that it talks to me and I don’t have to try to read.
Tonight, John and I wanted to do something special with Ben, so we offered to take him to the budget movie theater. He looked through the listings and chose a documentary, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. I had never heard of it, but it was by Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me), so I thought it would be good. All three of us loved the movie. It gave us a lot to think about. We had the greatest conversation on the way home.
Once again, it is pouring rain outside. I hope that the weather gets better for the rest of the weekend. I really want to get outdoors and do some work in our gardens. If not, at least I can take the chance to catch up on my sleep and break free from this post-surgical daze.
