Sharing the lessons along the way…

Bed Rest Buddy

Duke hung with me all day in spite of the rain.

I spent another day on bed rest.  And this time, I wasn’t cranky with anyone, didn’t chase anyone away, and although irritated, I wasn’t miserable.  I wasn’t comfortable either, but I wasn’t miserable or overtly cranky with anyone.  The incisions are less painful today, but my headache is more of a pain.

My hope is that two days in a row of bed rest will allow the back area to heal a bit more fully.  The constant headache is worse when I am up than lying flat, which is a sign of a spinal fluid leak, so I would prefer the hole seal up on its own.

Actually, I would prefer the headache go away entirely!  It has to be a slow leak because the headache isn’t severe.  It is just a bit more than an annoyance.

Meanwhile, I have accepted the challenge of figuring out how to grade assignments while I am lying flat!
