Sorry to hear that Holly, sometimes it's amazing what goes thru guys heads sometimes.
So it's been almost a week, & I'd say I'm doing pretty well. As much as it's killing me, I'm TRYING to behave and stay in bed / on the couch with the foot up. And it's driving me nuts!!!
Sunday, I took out the nerve block that had been put in behind my knee. It was a catheter that was put in a nerve behind my knee that continuously pumped drugs to my foot to keep it asleep. I can't believe they have you take out the catheter yourself, but they do. Thankfully, it came out like it was supposed to. I think I had full feeling about 2 hrs later. With the pain pills, it wasn't to bad.
Monday was TERRIBLE!!! Even with the pain pills, I was dying. It just kept getting more & more numb all the way up my leg. Another weird thing that happened was that my throat & tongue were raw & felt swollen. By that night it was to much so I called the Dr's office & got the on-call surgeon. I explained my symptoms & what I had been doing to try & fix it. His response "you just had surgery, it's going to hurt"
Yeah, got that doc, thanks. JERK!!
Yesterday it was a bit better, so I decided not to call MY doc, & today it's MUCH better. My toes still feel weird, so I'm hoping it's just temporary. Of course it's GORGEOUS outside, & since I don't have a lounge chair I'm stuck in the house.
I have managed to watch the Buck Brennaman documentary. Not bad, not what I thought it was going to be, but still interesting. I'm honestly trying not to watch or read to much horse stuff (sort of on the failing end of that, lol). Because if I do, I'm SERIOUSLY going to get impatient & that's NOT what I need, haha.
Getting slightly upset about the horse market, and watching prices slowly increase, and my chances of getting a decent one cheap aren't looking good. But we'll see, weirder things have happened, lol. All I know is I WANT TO GET BACK ON A HORSE!!!
