Things I have learned today

I've made several discoveries today. Perhaps this will brighten someone's day (or at least they won't be as foolish as I was). First, just because the doctor said I could drive does not mean I can go to the grocery store, push a cart for 1/2 an hour and unload grocreies. (Need I say that only the cold stuff made it inside?) Second, the rattle snake at the end of my driveway is just as dead the 5th time I backed over him as the 1st time -- just flatter. Third, the dog doesn't like the tomato and onion on the leftover hamburger any more than I did when it wasn't left over. He will, however, carry it from the kitchen to the living carpet quite neatly. Fourth, chocolate is a mood altering substance and when in ice cream can cure many problems.

Just remember the first time you drive, go for a short drive. Cause it feels really strange. My first drive I took my dd to school and went to work. Should have gone around the block first.

I'll be three months soon and it is STILL hard to drive. We have a huge big van that pulls things so that could be it for the most part, as driving older son's car is hard on my tender belly (even with an LAVH, I seem to heal alot slower than most people and it is still tender). So I don't go out much unless someone drives me. But we live ten miles out of town, so that is a condition too.
Your note really helped me out today- a bad day. I am still in pain and it just decided to act up more this morning. So the crying came on. The Zoloft helps but I think your note helped more.
BTW- DH got us all out in the camper and boat all weekend (kept an eye on me in my seat next to him to disallow doing anything but riding along) and I made sure that when the boys took me to the store to pick up everything for our trip (WONDERFUL sons are still doing all that for me so I won't lift anything or push a cart!) I made sure to get TONS of chocolate !!!!
It seems to be the ONLY thing that has not changed about me. We are all still addicted. At least it helps you smile and even my Dr said that !!!

I agree about the driving. My car is a Suburban and I haven't driven it since the surgery. I have ridden in it and just getting in and out is enough of a workout some days. I was released to drive at 2 weeks, didn't even try until 3 weeks and quickly decided someone else could do the driving. I'll get back into it again, I always loved to take long road trips by myself (Seattle to Denver, Denver to Santa Fe, etc.). I'm just not ready yet.
Chocolate--the best medicine in the world. Cures all kinds of ailments!

I loved your humor. I miss humor! We get so serious when we worry about our bodies and are in pain.

Thanks!

Yes, chocolate always makes me smile too.

I learned those cheap little back scratchers you might win at a carnival...come in handy for reaching things, and pulling them closer to you, and of course for scratching. they came in handy for getting under those boots in the hospital!
