Twenty days


It’s been 20 days since I posted anything in this space that wasn’t a Weekend Favorites or TWiP post. Thank goodness for those TWiP posts, actually, because they allow me to easily share what is going on around here even when I am too busy (or uninspired) to write real content during the week.

It keeps me from having to feel too guilty about letting things slide for several days.

So, it’s Wednesday morning. I had minor surgery on Monday to remove a growth on the back of my tongue. The biopsy already came back and all is well, so hooray for that! But the whole anesthesia thing really throws me for a loop. I get nauseous, and I spend about three times as long in recovery as all of the other patients before I feel well enough to put on my clothes and get in the car.

I’m pretty much back to normal now, although I am still dealing with a fairly sore throat (which is to be expected). And I am in a space of simultaneously wanting to get back to the Real World, and wanting to continue to take it easy a bit. So far I’ve compromised. I’ve taken a shower and gotten dressed for the first time in three days (yay! Real World!) but I’m not in any hurry to get anything else done at the moment (yay! Taking it easy!).

I really do need to start some laundry and do a spot of food shopping, but that can wait until the afternoon.

For now, I’m going to fire up the DVR and watch the Parks & Rec episode I missed last night, and work on a little bit of crochet. I’m making another blanket, and I’ll be sharing the pattern here when I’m done 

Nice chatting with you this morning!

  1. You are not alone, both my dad and I have awful problem coming out of anesthesia. We throw up, have headaches and just don’t deal well 😉 Glad your results were good though.

    1. Thanks, Kat. It sure makes you want to avoid anesthesia, doesn’t it?!

  2. So happy your results were positive. Take good care of yourself…there’s always time for yarn!

    1. “There’s always time for yarn.” Yep, I can get behind that 🙂

  3. Always nice to see what you are up to. Best wishes for a speedy recovery but take it easy as long as you feel the need. I like what I’ve seen of your new afghan, both the pattern and the colors you chose,

    1. Thanks. I am not normally a fan of pink, but I can make an exception for babies 🙂 I’ve got a new niece on the way.

  4. So happy you had happy test results! Just cuddle up for that healing DVD time. It works wonders!

    1. I’ve been taking full advantage of the comfortable couch this week. Maybe more than I need to 😉

  5. Glad your procedure went well and your results were good! The stress of those sorts of things alone can really take it out of you. Take care.

    1. Thanks!

  6. […] particularly the early part, was pretty much dominated by my surgical procedure, but we’ve already talked about that, so no need to discuss it any further […]
