Tummy Tuck Timeline, Weekend Edition Part Deux

One thing I did not anticipate with a TT is how frigging sore my back was going to be. Of course it makes sense, because when you cannot use your stomach muscles for anything, and you spend a week walking completely hunched over and sleeping in a recliner, it stands to reason that your back will be in motha-effing PAIN. Since the drains came out on Friday I can straighten up a bit more, but bending over to do simple things fatigues my back so quickly. Ugh.

The good thing is I'm off my heavy duty pain meds AND I drove myself to the grocery store this weekend. I probably shouldn't have done that, but DAMN it felt good. Truth be told, I am probably over-extending myself in several areas where I should be taking it easier. I'm not picking up the kids (there is no way I could do that now), but I do give them a leg up now and then if they need it. I am also taking the stairs probably more than I should. 

I miss doing my WWD outfit posts, but won't get back to them until next Monday when I go back to work, so you may have to actually READ more from me. I know, I know - a primarily fashion/style blogger WRITING STUFF? Crazy, huh? Well, I hope you stick wiv me. I have sincerely appreciated the kind words from everyone and look forward to reading every one of them.

Have a Happy Monday, yo!
Merci,
Shan

back pain is the worst. seriously, i'm a lot like you in probably doing too much too soon. i hate sitting around. but (mom-advice alert) DO try to take it as easy as you can. you'll heal faster and better if you do. heh. there. i'll pretend i didn't see you roll your eyes, and you'll pretend i'm not an intervening nitwit (am i the only one who, as a teen, felt that way about my mom? embarrassed to admit it now, but it's the troof).
feel better soon!
