Many of you know that I am recovering from a 2 level ALIF. I try to not do too much each day, but yesterday was a doozy. Now I'm paying for it. You'd think I'd know better since this is my second fusion.
I read other posts about the same thing and I try to remind myself to take it slow, and I usually do. However, yesterday the stars were aligned to be rough on me.
Mon. night we picked up a new dog to foster: that was a disaster because she decided she was going to rule my sweetheart (Shy "Love Machine"). She was actually nipping at him and fighting him. At one point he was hiding under the dining room table or hiding in a corner. It was horrible and very stressful.
The next morning I had to get the younger one to dance.
Then home to get the foster dog, put her in the car. Dropped her off, then on to the DMV because my license had expired. Then to the Pharmacy.
I had about 1/2 hour to breathe, the realized we all had haircuts scheduled as soon as the oldest got home. By the time my hubby got home I crashed in bed, only to get up to eat something and go back to bed. This morning I laid on the couch for two more hours and still feel like I could stay in bed all day.
If you are still reading this and not bored silly, take care of yourself, doing too much will knock you out big
time. I don't remember this happening my last fusion, at all, but then I "only" had a toddler and help all day for three months due to the no lifting. Now there are different responsibilities.
Wishing you all a good day,
