Tracy woke up a little dizzy this morning. we surmise that it is probably more a light-headedness due to her laying in a more prone position than a reclined position on the hospital bed. She is also really tired. She slept another 3 or 4 hours after getting up this morning and is feeling a little weak. We got up once last night for bathroom and medicine duty around 3 a.m. and then Tracy talked for a while about this experience. She has eaten a couple of times this morning and that seems to help for a little while. She is feeling things a little more intensely. That is a good thing in spite of the fact that it is discomfort and pain. Whereas, at the the hospital she would say her head was numb, now she says the whole thing feels bruised. She felt achy this morning all over. Her head, neck, arms and back are all kind of sore. At the moment she is resting in the chair in the living room with lights out and blinds drawn up (kind of sensitive to light; it's just intense). The ceiling fan is circulating quietly and the air conditioner is on. She is listening to soft Christian music on the big Ipod speaker system Troy gave her. It is very nice. I hope she is relaxing - seems to be.
Now all you house ladies and metro-males. Lord have mercy, I have gotten Bethany to school, made two breakfasts, made three beds, washed and folded 4 loads of clothes, taken care of
Tracy's needs at different times in the morning, cleaned up the kitchen, worked on Bethany's closet, and the whole time I'm thinking, "I'm tired and I want to take a nap"! The afternoon, I think is relegated to bill paying and managing mail and house stuff. Going back to work might just be a vacation. (Kind of teasin', but there is not a lot of sit down time.)
I look forward to your calls. You guys are somethin' else.
