I knew there was a chance this could happen based on what I have read, but this week I hit a bit of a depression. Had lots of calls last week to see how I was doing, and those slowed way down. On Wednesday I was in a bit of a funk because even though I know I'm just little more than a week out from surgery, I wish I could do more, and probably am doing too much as it is, and it kind of hit me. I was pretty swollen - even more so than normal.
Thankfully yesterday was better, but one frustration is that I just am not sure day-to-day how I'm going to feel. Honestly the pain isn't as bad as I had anticipated it being, which is good. It's not to say that there isn't pain, but I was expecting something much worse. For me, the depression this week came mostly from overdoing it a few days, and then not being able to do what I normally do, coupled with swelling and the painfully tight compression binder that I have to wear. I'm also dealing with a good amount of guilt over not being able to take care of The Trips like I normally do. I made sure to REALLY take it easy on Thursday, and spent most of the day either sitting or reclining on the couch, and not bending over (or sitting on the floor) to pick things up or change diapers.
I am SO lucky to have The Hubs, who has been amazing through everything, and my mom, who has also been a life-saver. I also decided to delay going back to work until Wednesday of next week, so hope-hope-hopefully I can start up my WWD outfit posts then, and ya'll will stick with me! Anyhoozle - here's to the weekend and continued recovery. Have a good one, yo!
