Happy Ho Ho Ho
Sorry I didn’t send any Christmas wishes to everyone, but here is my chance, and let me explain myself. On December 23rd, about 7am I started having abdominal pain. By noon the pain was so bad I had to sit and couldn’t stand to do my job. Well, by the time I got home the pain was unbearable, so I decided to try and sleep it off because I’d been really tired and stressed out. Within two hours I was woken up, and sent to the hospital.
I had emergency surgery on December 24th for internal bleeding caused by a hemorrage in my abdomen. I had a LAPAROSCOPY. The surgery was 2 hours long, and I was sent home at 11:30pm on Christmas eve. Until today I haven’t even been able to go to the bathroom by myself, so I do apologize for not getting ahold of anyone for the holidays, but as you can tell I do have a good reason. I will be off work into the new year, so if anyone needs to get ahold of me I will more than likely be at home. If I don’t pick up the first time, leave a message. I’m still not getting around very quickly.
Today I finally got to eat some solid food, and walked around in the mall for an hour with Steven. I got to take a shower by myself, so yay. I kind-of feel like an infant. I still can’t walk quite upright or bend over at all. I have to kneel to pick things up, but I’m not allowed to lift anything heavy or do any strenuous bending at all for the next four weeks.
SO MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY NEW YEAR! LILLE YUL!
Abdominal surgery is very painful.
