The following day after surgery. I was feeling quite well besides a sore throat and some neck pain. I even went for a short walk with my son and was doing light house chores. My husband told me that I should relax, but I told him that I wasn't quite sure how to do that. I wanted to spend some time watching a movie with my family but they were all busy with their own things. I watched some TV as my kids went to friends. I have been so lucky to have so much support in the form of people wathcing the kids, bringing us food and sending well wishes. I really think that this has helped me to feel so much better so soon.
I have still been eating a liquid diet and have found that ice water has made a huge difference. I always have a glass nearby and am constantly filling it with ice. (*tip*)
Family wanted to come visit us in the afternoon so I took a nap so I would be ready. Still when they came I didn't expect to be tired so soon. When they left I was ready for bed again. I was able to relax with the kids and help get them ready for school the next day before I finally fell asleep exhausted.
