I felt pretty chirpy when I woke up at 7.00am this morning as i slept rather soundly although I did get up for a while at 1.30am when my husband came home from work.
But I didn't have as much energy as I thought. I called work and told them I wasn't coming in today and that I wasn't sure about tomorrow either. I felt really guilty and had to remind myself that I have just had a serious procedure on my heart and I have lots of sick leave. And I am still tired and sore.
I am a Reading Recovery teacher. I work mornings. I sit down at my job but it is very demanding intellectually and I don't feel ready to drive or have the responsibility yet. I don't really want to sit at a desk for too long either.
After breakfast I sat at the computer looking at stuff. I didn't feel energetic.
At 10.30 am I went back to bed and slept for another hour.
I felt as if I could have slept longer but I heard Blossom come in with her Mum so I got up to see them.
I had my shower then. That made me feel better.
It was cold outside and showery.
I went for my walk around to the shop with Blossom in the stroller. I was still slow although it started to rain when we were nearly home and that made me speed up a bit.
I was a little out of breath when i got back inside. My husband asked why i was huffing.
I have felt a bit light headed at times. Seems to be when I move suddenly from one positon to another.
But also sometimes just when walking around.
My heartburn has often felt like a cold burn today. I experienced this coldness in the heart area on the evening of Day 2 also.
My groin wound is still a bit uncomfortable -enough to notice but not really troubling.The bruises are now a lovely shade of black.
My chest feels a bit uncomfortable when I bend over and by the evening I find my bra uncomfortable around my chest.
My heart beat still feels fluttery often but I mostly ignore it.
Once again I enjoyed having Blossom. I played with her, changed her nappy and dressed her in a cute bear suit her aunty sent her so that I could take some photos. I looked after her for about four and a half hours.
I did some more dishes, but that and Blossom care is all I've done today.
At 7pm I thought I could quite happily go to bed but I still need to heat up some chicken soup for my tea. Looking foward to a good night's sleep.
