I woke up urgently needing to pee; continuous bags of IV fluids for 6 days make for lots of trips to the bathroom. Snowy looked at me like, “Yay! It’s mommy, my middle of the night buddy.” But I can’t pick up anything heavier than 5 pounds and I had all I could do to make to the bathroom without peeing myself in this current condition.
4:03am — There are now 2 hours and 15 minutes until I can take my next painkillers. Thankfully I’ve been asleep for a few hours and I’m not in much PAIN. My back surgical area is sore (think like what a scrape feels like) and itchy but the OMG I’M GOING TO DIE muscle pain in my shoulders is being held at bay by this dose of painkillers. But dear God, do I itch.
Let’s see if I can sleep though these next 2 hours or so.
