Whose grass is greener?

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Yours?

Mine?

The ever elusive Jones’?

The life I have was created not by emulating what I appreciated in others but always by determining what I didn’t want to be.  All of my life experiences thus far have shown me the traits and the people I don’t wish to be like.

I have eliminated many things I don’t want to be, just by watching it happen to other people.

I don’t want to be: A drug addict, white trash, fat, lazy, a spoiled entitled princess, a boomerang parent, a boomerang child, an old person eating Alpo or poor, among others.

When who you are gets called into question, you have to be able to stand up and say this is who I am, for me I feel like I can’t say that because instead I say this is who I’m not.

Same thing? Perhaps!

Diary of a bOOb job – 4 days Post-Op

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I thought I wrote a blog post 2 days ago, but apparently the Percocet messed that up!

Let’s play catch up: I’m sure it would have gone something like this.

Hello Everyone, I’m feeling pretty good! Still waiting for the pain!?!  The boobs are swollen, blah, blah, blah

Wait!

That’s pretty much what it would look like today as well.

The absolutely worst part of this is trying to force myself to relax, and just stay in bed.  Hardest thing EVER!  Especially because the pain level just isn't that bad. Short of being able to lift things I feel like I could still do most things.

Take that back…I can’t sweep, apparently that takes nothing but pectoral muscles. Good to know!

I have only been taking pain pills at night since Friday and that’s mostly just to help me sleep. These are not the most comfortable things to sleep with. They are pretty hard still.

I’ve been using Arnica and that seems to be doing a great part of the pain management.

OK, back to sitting,

Diary of a bOOb job – 24 Hours Post-Op

Thursday, June 9, 2011

OK, surgery went great, and I am really surprised by the lack of pain. I expected it to be so much worse, I would liken it to when your milk comes in for nursing. Just very full.

I had an appointment this morning to get the bandages removed, and what a relief that was!  I can take a full breath again! AMAZING.

The downside is that I didn’t sleep very well, but that was just because I couldn't get comfortable, I am a side sleeper and right now that just isn’t an option.  So I slept on the couch and watched movies all night.

My next post-op appointment is on Monday. I think it’s just for a check-in.

Diary of a bOOb job – T-Minus 3 days

Good news!  My surgery was rescheduled 4 hours earlier, So now instead of having to deal with my day I just get to wake up, take an antibacterial shower, and get going.
How am I feeling? Nervous is an understatement!
Yesterday I had a migraine and unfortunately the only thing I can take is Tylenol! I apologize to the makers of Tylenol, but when it comes to migraines, it just doesn’t work! 
Wednesday can’t come soon enough, I just need to get this over with!

Project for the day

My cabinets were in desperate need of some mild organization. Maybe I need to consider not having all of the most used items in the kitchen in one cabinet!  But at least for the time being, it’s done!
