Tipping back in...

Well, so much for blogging every day in October...

I did so well in the beginning. I've been off work this week. I had yet another surgery last Friday. This time I had a graft put in my arm.

As if I'm not scarred up enough already. *shrug* Gotta do what I gotta do though.

I'd been feeling better and better as the week progressed although I've been sleeping later and later in the mornings. I think I got out of bed at 1 something yesterday, but 11 today.

I've already taken a nap though. I've been reeeeal tired today. My arm that the graft is in got really tired and achy and I've had cramps all day.

I didn't think they took too much fluid off me last night, but maybe they did.

I don't think I've ever described how it feels the day after too much fluid has come off.

The last 12 hours have been like this...lay down, get comfy all in the covers and a cramp starts pulling in my thigh. I straighten it out and the cramp moves down to my calf. I get up and the cramp moves down to my foot. I get in a hot shower to relax my muscles.

Finally comfortable, fall asleep. Wake up with a muscle in my side pulling. Twist around to stretch it out, get a "charlie horse" in my stomach (It's been a joy to get those since I had my lap band surgery).

Bottom line, I've not really had any rest...Literally every part of my body has cramped at some point.

I'm looking at my pinky finger pulling to the left right now.

Ever had a "charlie horse" in the jaw? If you can imagine how it pulls your calf/thigh area, except just under your jawbone.

Gotta admit, it definitely stays interesting...

You're amazing to share your story. I'm sure someone out there with your ailment or some other condition or disorder needs to know they're not alone.

I hope you feel better, sis. (((BIG hugs))) I love you.
