Sleep, Sleep, Sleep. That's all I want to do right now. I work up at about 6:30 this morning and sat down at the kitchen table with the girls for breakfast. But by the time they were ready to go at 7:30, I was already in the recliner almost dozing off again.
I really expected the first night home to be awful. But it wasn't. Mitch set up my bed with as many pillows as possible. I even took out my pregnancy pillow called the snoogle to wrap around and give my arms some support. I also discovered that the boppy pillow was perfect for holding the ice packs in just the right place. I put on the camisole that they gave me that has pockets for drains and then my super soft fleece button up pajama shirt on top of it. It kind of makes me feel like I'm walking around wearing a life jacket. But I did sleep well, only waking up once to take more pain meds.
I've been sleeping on and off the rest of the day so far. Mitch is back at work, but keeps texting or calling to make sure that I haven't gotten myself stuck in a position that I can't get up from. He only works 2 minutes away, so I know that he can be here as soon as I say I need something. I've been practicing breathing with this thing to help me be able to take deep breathes again.
I'm surrounded by some beautiful flowers to make the day better as well. Now back to sleep.
