Ahhhhh… Nothing like a good night’s sleep to make one more positive! I only woke twice when the nurse was scheduled to take my vitals, and each time I went right back to sleep.
Awaiting my gluten free breakfast in the morning, I watched a little news on tv and read the paper on my phone. Still can’t eat all my food, but it’s actually quite tasty!
I can’t imagine not having my smartphone with me. It’s been providing an enormous amount of entertainment for me as in audiobooks, blogging, emailing, facebooking, you name it! I’ve even used FaceTime, although perhaps that isn’t such a great idea considering I’ve been in a hospital gown for three days. I’m not exactly the vision of loveliness at the moment.
Today so far they have increased the motion on the machine my leg is in, and I’m now at 75 degrees. They’re starting to give me Percocet with the morphine in anticipation of weaning me off the morphine by the end of the day and continuing with the Percocet only.
One of the more exciting moments since I’ve been here is when they removed the catheter, hurray! Now I will have the challenge of getting up and going to the bathroom. Isn’t this just what you want to hear in your morning? It’s actually kind of a shitty thing to say if you ask me! 😉 Yep, my humor has officially gone down the toilet!
Stay tuned for all the latest updates on today’s physical therapy session!
