Milestones

First day back at work since the surgery last Friday. I am sore, tired, and I feel roughly like I've been punched in the gut, but I made it! Getting back into the swing of things is gonna be tough. I still move slow, and I'm not allowed to lift anything over 25 lbs (and really, it doesn't take near that much to make me feel the strain). I haven't touched the Lortab again. It made me terribly sick, and I caught myself not breathing a couple times, which is more than a little scary. I'm making due with tylenol, still. It's not the best, but it keeps me from being in agony.

Lots of well-wishers among our regular customers, which is nice. There are definitely good sides to working in a small town. Everybody knows your business, but they care too. I've been frustrated at my physical limits thus far. I still can't stand unaided for more than ten or fifteen minutes without starting to feel crappy. Leaning on the counters helps, though I still find myself sitting down quite a bit. The worst part, actually, is that my back is horribly stiff. There's not a whole lot I can do about it, so I'm doing my best to tough it out. I think it would help if I could lay on my stomach, but I can't yet. I'm hoping that problem will solve itself eventually. Until then, I'll just smell like muscle rub. c.c Oh well. It helps.
