wishing the road to recovery wasn't so long!

Thursday, January 21, 2010

So I haven't been on Sparkpeople very much lately...or at least not blogging. I've just not been feeling well. I had surgery on Saturday to remove a kidney stone. The surgeon and doctors told me that it was a quick recovery...I would be back to normal by Tuesday. Tuesday came around and no. I couldn't go to work or my internship. I went yesterday to nanny but couldn't even chase around the kids! They kept telling me that they wanted to play! I just couldn't...

Today, I told myself that I would just go through it all. I would do my internship, work at the daycare, and even nanny. I woke up feeling okay. I went to my internship and I swear, I'm back in high school. I do speech therapy at one of the Catholic schools. There's the main professor and then 2 other girls working along with me. Today I get back and the professor is very nice to me, but the other two girls were...well let's just say they weren't pleasant. They were mad at me because they had a tough week last week since I was gone, they had to take my caseload too. They would be talking about something and then suddenly start whispering when I was in the room. My gosh! Drama!

So, the rest of the day I was able to go to the daycare for a couple hours and then I had someone else pick up my nanny kids. I was way too tired!

Before, I was saying about the road to recovery not being short enough. I'm now dealing with some side effects from all of the pain medication that I've been taking for over a week now. I feel so sick to my stomach and just feel awful. I keep hoping that it'll end soon. I hope so!! I just want to feel better.

    Awwwwww....I really hope you feel better soon. Nothing stinks more than not feeling well and having people not be supportive, especially co-workers. Just wait until they get into the real workplace if they think it's so bad having to cover 1 person's caseload for a week. I'm an SLP and it does get much busier than that!!!! Kill 'em with kindness and go on about your life! It'll make you feel better to know you are not letting their petty games affect you!

    Been there (recovery from surgery) and it's not always as quick as we would like. It will get better, be patient and gentle with yourself.

    Hugs, thoughts & prayers! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Just take your time to recovery. Everyone is different in the time it takes to get back on your feet. We'll be here for you

    It will get better. We just don't "bounce back" as easy as we did in our teen years. Each day it improves! Just like the baby steps here at SP, recovery moves slowly. One day at a time! emoticon

    Hi there, oh i hope you feel much better really soon. I had the SAME exact thing happen with me 2 years go when I was doing an internship, working at a daycare and I nanny.. HORRIBLE experience and it took weeks longer than they said to get better so I hope its not the same experience for you.

    Thoughts are with you
