The worst part about having surgery: everything else about having surgery.
Last Thursday, I had a procedure done to fix the herniated disc in my back I've been struggling with for the last year and a half, and it all went (mostly) really well! Now I'm home again, with a husband who is taking care of my every whim, and I'm ready to get some serious recovery underway!
In the past 5 days, I've had many firsts, including:
My first overnight stay in a hospital.
My first experience in an operating room.
My first time laying down for 24 hours without moving - much easier said than done.
My first time watching 5 episodes of Secret Life of the American Teenager in a row (which I do not recommend to anyone)
My first time eating a dinner that Scott made without any help from me - and it was delish!
My life is going to be a teensy bit boring the next few weeks because I can't do much while my back is healing up, but since blogging is one thing that's really easy to do from bed...you'll still hear from me :)
