Healing



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.

Sounds like you are truly on the road of recovery. my insertion sites seem to.be healing pretty well. I can put up with bruises as i've had bad ones before from falling off horses.lol I think we are just so aware of our hearts we find it hard to not notice how they feel. I have haf the odd little skipped beat feeling but it's nothing like it was before. Amazing really.

I'm happy that it is going well for you too. I think you have a good point about our probable hyper-awareness of the heart. The last few days I have felt a bit off mentally. I feel a bit spaced out and I am a bit slow to thnk of what i mean to say sometimes. I make more mistakes than usual and forget where I put things. I laso seem a bit manic-find it hard to stop doing things. Rather funny really. I'm not particularly worried but if it doesn't resolve I might be.
