I Am a Delicate Flower

Recovery has progressed quite well so far. I haven't needed the pain medications at all since the day of the laparoscopy (which seems like such a waste of a powerful prescription!). The shoulder soreness has eased up some, to the point that I hardly needed to apply heat at all yesterday. So I attempted to return to work today. You know, my strenuous job as a church secretary. Which I do from home.

Y'all. (Weakness makes me feel all Southern-belle-like.)

Sitting upright at a desk is taxing stuff.

I worked for a total of three hours, catching up on e-mail and voicemail, and oh, the exhaustion! The achiness! The fresh (though slight and not worrisome) bleeding! I took due notice from my body and returned myself to reclining on the couch. And now I shall take a nap. Work can wait.

Work can wait, your delicate reproductive system, on the other hand, needs all the time you can give it. :-)

Dahlin'! You simply MUST take care of yo'self! It does not DO to be wearin' yo'self out in front of that computer, working like a hi'hed hand. I declare, child! Now go have that man of yours bring you some lemonade. That's right, go on now honey.

*fans herself*

(Be a belle while you can...real life can wait a little longer. As the ultimate southern belle herself said: "Tomorrow is another day!")

Seriously, girl, you just had abdominal surgery!!! I would NOT expect you to be better by now, even if you don't need the pain medications. Your body may not be in pain, but it still has a great dela of healing to do. Take care of yourself!!!

Good for you for listening to your body.

And Flicka's impression seriously rocks my funny bone. Dead on, man. =)

Definitely use this time to your advantage! Eat up this relaxation and this NEED to recline and rest. It doesn't come around too often!

I'm a "y'all" user. But, I'm a Tennessean through and through, so I have that soft, authentic accent that lends itself to saying "y'all" regularly. It just kind of rolls of the tongue.

Take it easy! Don't do too much too fast.
