Lent Day Nine: Through The Ringer

IMG_2413

One of my favorite things to photograph is textures.  I haven’t gotten out much the last few weeks because of weather, and now I am modified bed rest until Friday.

I slept most of the day yesterday after the surgery.  I was awake enough to write on the blog, but other than that I slept.  I slept too much actually.  I didn’t sleep much last night.  I just took a pain pill, so I might fall asleep again.  It’s funny though, I was looking at the mirror, and it looks like I was in a street fight.  My right sinus is swollen.  I have the beginnings of another sinus infection– this is par for the course for me.  I normally get 3-4 of them a year.  I was told that I could have my sinuses fixed, but I was told that the surgery is only 40-50% effective.  They cut my lip during the extraction, so I have a huge bottom lip.  After a morning nap, I might shower and try to clean.  My parents are coming for a visit.  My mom, daughter, and I are walking the Seaside 5K.  I mostly do it for the Vera Bradley coupon you get at the end of the race.  I hope to snag both mine and my daughter’s coupon.  I am eyeing a wallet and purse.  I have done this race every single year for awhile.

I plan on walking tomorrow as long as I am feeling better.  The doctor told me that I could run as soon as I was off pain medication and the swelling is down.  Which should be Monday or Tuesday.  I’m up to running 6 miles or so now, and I feel great.  Next week I’ll be running 6-7 miles this next week.  I am trying to get a free entry to the Destin Marathon, which is debuting next April 2016, it’ll be the perfect warm up race for Grandma’s 2016.  After I am cleared from Physical Therapy (next week), I’ll start going to the gym 1-2 times a week to work out.  I’m looking forward to being buff…

P.S. If you have managed to read this blog, I applaud you.  The Percocet has taken effect, and I’m not 100% sure that I’m coherent…  I don’t plan on working on the novel today, as I don’t know how I will be writing…
