Today I contacted my surgeon with questions about my weight restrictions. I am getting quite yantzy if you can tell. All I want to do is grab a hold of my little boy and hold on so tight to him and unfortunately I am not able to do that yet. I couldn't remember what my doctor told me, I guess my old age is getting the best of me (lol). Anyway, the nurse informed me that I am not able to lift anything over 20 lbs for 4 weeks from the 22nd when I had my staples removed. So, I guess I still have 3 more weeks left (UGH). I am getting so frustrated to say the least and all I want to do at this point is to snuggle with my little boy. I just want to be able to do all of those things that I am use to doing with him and as you guessed it.... I am missing it BIG BIG bunches!! I guess you could say that I am a bit jealous too. I mean this little boy of mine is totally obsessed with his Daddy now and doesn't want a thing to do with me and it is killing me. We go from being best of buddies to strangers or something close to it. It hurts!! Well, I guess I will just start counting down those days and when those 3 weeks are up, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be holding that little boy as much as I can in a 24 hour period. Another thing that I mentioned to my doctor was the fact that I was still experiencing sharp pains in my surgery area. I asked if it could possibly be the fact that everything was moving back into place and that the muscles and everything were growing back together or whatever they do after surgery and she said "yes" and "no". She explained that if the pains continue and I am still experiencing them next week then I should probably come in and have an x-ray done. I asked why and she explained that it could mean that perhaps I still have a gall stone that is basically floating around in there and wreaking havoc. Oh, geesh!! I about lost my mind when she said that. What I didn't tell her is that I have been experiencing the pain for the past couple weeks. It is intermittent, but it is definitely something that gets my attention so here is to hoping that the pain disappears soon. The last thing I need or want is another surgery and most importantly to be cut open again and deal with weight restrictions again. Gotta love it!! Well, I will keep you all posted. If you could just keep me in your prayers - I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
