fed up

well nothing went quite to plan with the surgery. knuckle wasn't as bad as he thought so some minor work on that. haven't spoken to surgeon but anaesthetist chap says he has tried to repair ruptured tendon on index finger by taking a tendon fron wrist. from where i'm getting the pain i'm guessing he has gone in through the same place as 8 times before. also work done to thumb. in plaster for a week then a splint will be made for a further 8 weeks. had nerve blacker and full ga. was meant to be 45mins for op tops but actually lasted almost 3 hours. if tendon patch is successful i will be a very happy girl but right now i hurt a lot.
had a better night but the reality is just starting to hit me and i feel totally fed up and bored, other hand is really bad from having to bear the brunt couldn't even hold a sandwich in it yesterday. i can either watch tv, read or go on pc for a bit and that's it. silly to feel sorry for oneself especially if it means i may come out of it with one tendon repaired but it is so frustrating and painful, still maybe it will be a bit easier after the sling and cast goes. and i've gained 2lbs flippin eric seems to be on a mission to fatten me up and my willpower is at zero.

hounds are all well and happy and loving this beautiful weather.

perhaps when i blog again i will be feeling happier with life.

Oh, how frustrating! Know that your friends are thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery. My husband is a "food comforter" as well. Good luck with that.

Sorry you're in such pain. It's good that your husband and the kids are there to comfort you. I'm sure your willpower will return as you start to feel better.
