Today is Saturday so no work. I woke up before 6.00am and got up early.
I felt rather well today. I was a bit tired but I didn't have 8 hours sleep and i did a lot yesterday.
I got my kitchen bench totally cleared of dishes for the first time since I came out of hospital. Yay! I wanted to vacuum but only got as far as getting the vacuum cleaner out.
However I was pretty active around home all day doing washing and some babycare.
I had a short nap in the late afternoon.
A phone call woke me and then I thought that my heart was going fast and it felt as if it was beating hard. But I got up and counted my heart rate and it was normal so all is well. That's the first minor panic that I have had for over a week.
I'm not noticing my heart much at all most of the time now. It is getting more and more comfortable. My catheter access wound is still tender if touched but I didn't notice any discomfort from it otherwise today.
My main problem now seems to be stopping myself from doing too much and making myself stop for rests.
