Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still alive. I'm doing ok and recovering fairly well. My butt only hurts when I roll over, lay on my back, bend over, or try to sit down. Awesome, right? I also have a massive crater in my mouth from the breathing tube they used on me, which hurts like a sonofabitch, and bruises on my shoulder and both sides of my jaw from the surgery positioning stuff, so that's fun. I have to call the doc tomorrow to schedule my check for hematomas/change my dressing appointment. The healing continues.
My mom stayed with me and took care of me all weekend, which was really nice. I hated being completely confined to the couch all weekend, but it was nice to have someone wait on me hand and foot for three days. She also brought tons of junk food that we snacked on all weekend, and introduced me to Ben & Jerry's Red Velvet Ice Cream. If you haven't tried this stuff yet, you must! It's soooooooooo good!
After my mom left tonight, I was feeling a bit bummed because I was left in the care of B, who is a terrible nursemaid (he knows this and admits it), so I decided to open my first ever crappy day present. I took some pictures and will do a whole post on it later. But for now, a big thanks to DMB for making me smile (and maybe squee a bit) tonight.
On a random and unrelated note, I love this blog post about Diet Coke and why it's not the devil. Bring on the DC!
Man, lots of exclamation points tonight. I need to stop doing that. Time to go ice my bum, take a pain pill, and return some e-mails (probably not in that order...some of those e-mails are professional).
