To say that I am bored would be a major understatement! On a happy note I do feel better most days. I do have good days and bad, which is what the doctor said would happen. The problem is I still can't get up and do anything. I can walk for maybe 5 minutes at a time, then have to sit down and hurt for about 30 min...NOT FUN!!! Tomorrow marks 3 weeks, which means half way there. I am trying to find things to keep me busy, but I HATE to be still. I always feel the need to be up and doing something. Plus my emotions are all over the place (good thing they didn't take my ovaries or I might be suicidal). I think it is just because I am just sitting. I really couldn't wrap my mind around actually being down for this long. I thought it would be more like when you have a baby and they tell you it takes 6 weeks to recover, but you feel pretty good after about a week. Well so not the case with this. It has been 3 weeks and I have not held a blow dryer or put my contacts in, which may seem small, but to me is a big deal. Sorry to vent, but I just need to let off some of that steam! Hope all is well with my blog friends and I will keep everyone posted on my recovery.

On the Road to Recovery

Well so far all is well at the Tate household. My surgery went as planned (left both ovaries) and I feel a little better everyday. The hardest part right now is having to stay down for 2 weeks. Everyone thinks they would love to stay in bed for 2 weeks, but trust me it gets old real fast! After my 2 weeks are up (next Tues.) I can start walking around the house some, but NO lifting until the doc clears me. He said don't pick up milk, my purse, big shampoo bottles...NOTHING! I go back Nov. 15, so life is going to be super boring until then. On a good note, Brad has been awesome! My mom and MawMaw and PawPaw have rotated so far to help out, but Brad has managed to run the house and take care of Jacob and Carley with minimal complaining :) I am so very blessed to have him! It is times like these you find out how much someone really cares!
