I’ve been trying to rest for a few hours and I’m feeling a little better, thank God. This experience is interesting in the sense that these side effects seem to come and go. It’s like a roller-coaster of headaches and nausea..
There isn’t really a rhyme or reason, as far as I can tell.
It’s been a rough day and I’m thankful it wasn’t any worse than it was. My back is finally healing up and the hole is almost gone. I left the dressing off for a little while today in order to expose it to the air.
Lizze suggested that I remove the bandage at bedtime and until the hole is gone, put a fresh bandage on in the morning. I happen to think that’s a pretty solid plan. Once this is completely healed, it will be one less thing on my plate to worry about.
The kids will be going down for the night in the next hour or so and I plan to take it easy for the rest of the night. If I have an ounce of commonsense, I’ll hit the sack at a decent hour as well. ☺
