I’ve been up walking almost every hour to the bathroom, does that count Isaiah_40_31?
I think I’ve had more to drink this last few hours than I have in most of a month. I remember when I was a kid and got my tonsils out I didn’t drink like I should and ended up with a blood clot in my incision site, which hemorrhaged, scaring my 8 yr old self and my mother at the time. So trying to do what the doctor tells me, drink as much as possible, etc.
Blessed that my husband took the day off to help me with surgery, and my mother came down to spend a week to help me first few days after surgery. They both have been fantastic. My mother even went to the store middle of the day to purchase soft foods she thought I’d like to have, or could eat.
It’s 2:30am roughly here and I just took my 3rd pain pill since surgery this past morning. Trying to make sure I keep on top of the pain. I can’t take NSAIDs (motrin, aspirin, ibuprofen, etc) as they severely attack my asthma, so I may call the Dr in the morning and see if there is anything I can do other than drink lots of cold and cool water.
Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions everyone! I have to say even though my throat is really painful, this has so far been one of my easier surgeries,
