Lately I have been dragging.
And I can't quite figure out why.
And them I had to remind myself that I rarely sleep through the night - thrashing about trying to get "comfortable" and to constantly remind myself to NOT sleep on my stomach.
Also, I just had major surgery.
Even though I feel increasingly better than the day before (minus sleep deprivation), It has only been six weeks. A lot of people have the surgery I had and still aren't back to work.
But back to work I am and every 8:30 am meeting is a complete struggle. Given that I still can't blow dry my hair, I feel like I look as poorly as a feel. I'm sorry world.
I love you dry shampoo.
I start rehab next week. I hope to regain the range of motion, specifically on my right side. It still hurts to reach, bend over, lift, push, pull, live. Ok, that was a bit over dramatic, but my right side is significantly behind on the recovery bandwagon.
Some people still think I was on vacation last month, that's cute...
