WOW...this has been like nothing I have ever experienced and I gave birth to a nine pound baby!
I did get a bath and my hair washed in the kitchen sink today....but other than that have not done anything.
I am resting in bed and taking pain pills about every three hours...that is about as long as they last. I still can't think about eating anything more that toast.
I am trying to drink but that is tough. The idea of anything in my stomach makes me ill. The problem with that is...the pain meds lower my blood pressure and I need the fluids to keep it up. Before I left the hospital I was given 1000cc of fluid because my blood pressure dropped to 88/54.
The bandages are to come off tomorrow. That should make movement a little easier or at least less confining. The pain makes nothing easy...breathing, coughing, sleeping, moving etc.
There is one good thing...I can sleep in my bed. There is nothing like your own bed when you don't feel good.
