So the sinus surgery on Thursday afternoon really took a lot out of me. We're hopeful that the fever spikes (yes, I had another episode bad from about 8am to 11:30a today) are "normal post-op fevers" -- well, normal for someone with my immune system.
This morning I felt absolutely horrible. Hadn't slept, nose and face were uncomfortable, and had zero energy. I still feel very weak/sluggish, but am a little better since this second fever broke -- hence the quick blog entry. My red counts are low too, so they gotta give me some blood. That'll help. Just trying to catch up on rest and sleep. No laps today.
Just goes to show, you gotta take this one day at a time. Tue/Wed and Thu morning were great, but then that surgery hit me like a ton of bricks, and then the fevers hit on top of that.
So, I don't know when I'm getting out of here, and I'm not going to set a date expectation. Instead, I'm focusing on wellness and positive attitude. As Fat Sam would say, "When it comes, it comes!"
Lasty, I am 100% off all pain meds ('cept Tylenol). Side effects were killer. Hopefully I can stay off them and still achieve the pain-free day I'm shooting for.
I will kick its ass,
