I went to Sam Houston Race Track last night with a meetup group. We had a great table by the window near the starting line. Unfortunately, the buffet was up a bunch of stairs. Who would think that climbing stairs uses your abdomen muscles? I was very sore when I woke up this morning.
I'm getting to feel comfortable with everyone. One woman, Lady, even went back up to the buffet to get me dessert.
I stayed for the first 4 races. It was almost 30 minutes between races. The next one was the ostrich race. It was a very short race but it was fun to watch.
This morning I found my journal from August 2006 that I kept at the time of my lapband surgery. I was in lots of pain that time, too. I was even having pain a month later. So, now I feel better that my abdomen still hurts so much. I was getting worried that the doctor had left a scalpel in my gut because I get so many sharp stabbing pains. So, I'm relieved. I am probably just fine.
I took half a vicodin last night before I went to bed. My abdomen hurt and I wanted to get a good night's sleep. I slept until 10 AM this morning! The cats were really mad at me.
I still have a long way to go before my house is back in order. The surgery was at a bad time. The house is a mess but I can't lift anything over 10 pounds or over exert myself.
Today I took apart a large flower arrangement that I had made for my wedding day. I'd kept it for sentimental reasons. There is no reason to keep it anymore. I was able to make 3 floral arrangements with the flowers that I took from it.
