True love

True love is when your husband will stop playing World of Warcraft to come help you wash your hair, make sure you got all of the soap off of your incision, and then dry your legs and both sides of your cath bag *laugh*

I did too much today, and looking back, I didn't do much. My stomach is so swollen and hurts when I move. I guess I'm going to have to really restrict myself to the couch more over the next few days and not skimp on my pain meds. On Friday, I have my post-op and we'll get rid of this damn cath. YAY!

Several bright things have happened today though:

- I came home to several cards, one from georgiaskydiver and two from people in my Mothers of Multiples group
- I found a mystery box on the table, and upon opening it found that a coworker of mine from California, who was on a spa vacation with her sister last week, sent me a 'nap kit' from the spa. It's a scented eye pillow, a CD of mellow music, and 'Sleep Well' AHA Body Lotion with rose oil, chamomile and valerion.
- Jax sent us take-out Chinese :) We pigged on all kinds of food, which was great since I went to make a sandwich for lunch and used the last two pieces of bread and the last of the lunch meat. Hubby has to go to the STORE tomorrow!

Taking a real shower tonight made me feel way more human. Now - must get comfortable and sleep. :)

Just get bread and basic stuff -- we've got a cooler with dry ice and five days of breakfasts, lunches and dinners to bring up to you today!

I'm pretty sure I have your address to look up driving directions, but if you could drop me an e-mail with anything I might want to note about the drive (all I know off the top of my head is your nearest mall and that the tolls on 121 aren't in effect yet) and what time would work best for you, I'd really appreciate it.

Would you like flowers too? I was fondling some yesterday but didn't know if you've got enough cut flowers for your house or not.

You already have my cell number, but 9/635-3404 is my local Vonage number -- it rings to the house, then my cell.

You guys amaze me so much :) You're going way above and beyond - not that the hungry woman on couch going through hot flashes is complaining *laugh*

Can't wait to see you guys this afternoon.

Hey girlfriend! I'm sorry I've been out of touch. Our internet connecton completely crapped out and we haven't been able to use the computers for nearly a week now.

How are you feeling? Do you need anything? Is there anything I can do?

I haven't checked up on your journal yet, so I apologize for the posts I have missed.
