Recovering

I have been home since Friday evening and I am on the steady path to recovery.

The thing that most annoys me right now are the things I had to miss out on because of this.  Of course, I really did not get to enjoy the much needed four day weekend of Thanksgiving...I was in a lot of pain.

Then I was in the hospital for five days--missing out on a week of work (new job I am still stressing out about--timing is everything).  Not to mention looking out the window and seeing--SNOW?  (Luckily only an inch or two--but I missed the first snow?) I missed going to my nieces' 2nd Birthday party and my son's Holiday concert.

But, you know...I feel a LOT better since the surgery.  And while I cannot pick up Willow yet (much less sleep in my own bed)--I have been able to help to (finally) get our holiday decorations up!  Our tree is up; our menorah is out--we have started watching our holiday classics and tonight I spent a lot of time reading to Willow from a ton of our holiday books...so, I guess things are getting back on track!

Tomorrow, I see the doctor and hopefully get my drainage plug out (yeah, that was not something I expected).

I have appreciated getting to have extra time with the kids this week.  So much so that I am only partially looking forward to returning to work next week (oh why can I not win the lottery?) if only because it will feel more "normal".

Time is going by slow/fast/what?  and I wish the holidays would slow down a bit!

This Saturday night is the first night of Hanukkah--looking forward to making latkes and roast and hopefully being mostly healed and healthy for the holidays.

Oh I'm so glad you're finally starting to feel better. I bet you'll be ready to do cartwheels soon!

Sorry you missed out on some fun things though.
