Still Sore

I feel much better today.  I actually motivated to shower and get changed, and I had a small breakfast too.  Now I'm eating a little of my favorite ice cream Phish Phood by Ben and Jerry.  So yummy.  My throat is still raw from the tubes they used during the surgery.   So the ice cream helps.  I'm also enjoying all the rest.  I nap when I want and have basically just been laying around.  I think that by tomorrow I'll be fine.  After my doctors appointment I'm going to take my mom shopping.  I figure if I actually give myself a task I'll be more liable to do it.  I really don't want to spend another full day in bed.    But of course I'll still rest.  The last thing I want to do is cause more scar tissue to form.  

Having mom here is a joy.  She is taking really good care of me and has cleaned our house from top to bottom.  It is great to have her deliciously cooked meals.  And just nice to visit with her since she lives so far away.  It is nice to be mothered like this.  I wonder if this is what it will be like when she comes to stay with us after we have a baby?

I'd second taking it easy.
I pushed myself too soon after a surgery, and now I have a lot of scar tissue (granted, it was a different kind of surgery, and I am just a "scarrer", but def be kind to yourself. Baby yourself.

I am glad you are resting nicely! that is so important!

I am sure this will be exactly how your mom is once your baby gets here!

Sounds like your mom is really awesome! I bet she'll take just as good of care of you after you have your baby. :)
