Halloween Cat

It's a sickness

I wish I could weigh myself properly. I know I'm gaining, but I keep wanting, nay, needing chocolate and other things bad for me. Stupid food cravings.

Last night was the first really bad night since the surgery. I woke up around midnight IN PAIN - really, uncomfortable, can't-get-back-to-sleep, PAIN. I stumbled out of bed and took a couple of Percocet and managed to get back to sleep eventually, but I'm still getting twinges now. I have the TENS unit on and I'll take Lortab when I get to work. I had my first post-op doctor's appointment to change the dressings, and boy, is this foot ugly. I'll be happy when it's done, though. The bone is healing nice and straight and the doc seemed pleased. Sadly, I did tell them I haven't been in much pain so I didn't get a new prescription. I hope this settles down here shortly. I really don't know what changed (besides the bandages).

First day of work was not too bad; I did have the happy, joyous sensation of "wow, they really, really need me!" upon returning. Of course, that does mean right off, back to overtime.

So off to work I go.
