Bit of a rant about recovery.
I'm sick of these same four walls.
Sick of the pain of my cuts and shit.
Sick of being tired and sore from doing basic shit.
Sick of getting winded taking walks that I could do without issue every day before the surgery.
Sick of having a nonexistent appetite.
Sick of wincing in pain from a fart that won't reach my ass for another hour or two.
Sick of laying in bed when I want to be out and at work, or just out doing something.
Sick of being in pain when I shiver.
Having to pee hurts (No, I didn't say it hurts when I pee. 😉
Gas pain takes on a whole new life when it presses on internal sutures.
I'm tired of being tired. How about that? heh.
I'm sick of what used to be simple being very difficult.
I guess I should be happy I made it without complications, but I'm cranky and tired today, so there's probably no pleasing me. heh.

I posted some photos of me, in the hospital and out. Not very many, but for those who are interested.
Remember the thumbnails are clickable.
oops, forgot to update this site for the last few days. I'm really enjoying this whole "being out of the hospital" thing. It's great. I got home Tuesday at 4pm.
It's hard to explain most of my life lately without being "too much information" – way sucky. 😉
I don't know if I can make my goal of trying to do basic driving tomorrow. I might try, carefully.
One thing's for sure, I really like these pain pills they gave me. They make me feel all good. 😉
Tonight is the big "lets see what kind of spicy food Paul can successfully eat" night. w00t!
Yea, so anyway, I'm doing well, things are just going a bit slower than I hoped. I should still be ready to make the trek to my parents on Wednesday though. That'll be cool.
Wow, look at me babbling along. Sorry to raise the S/N ratio of your LiveJournal, folks. 😉
Update: LiveJournal readers can ignore the actions of my mood icon, as obviously I'm not in enough pain to be doing -that-. It's the pain pills. Just thought I'd make that as blatently obvious as it should be.
Hello, everyone. It's actually me this time. w00t.
Thanks for the outpouring of support, I really appreciate it. 🙂
I'm alive. I have internet access, but I'm still in the hospital.
I guess some dude from my work was drilling my home phone today trying to get me to do some shit for him, but I also hear he got the message when
Anyway, I'm tired, and on dialup, so I'll be disconnecting shortly. If you see me on aim on noweb4ulaptop, that's me. Say hi or something.
