I woke up this morning feeling pretty discouraged. I'm still in some pain (not as much as I was), but I'm just not seeing the improvement I thought I would by now. It's been 4 weeks since my cystectomy, for heaven's sake! Wasn't my recovery supposed to be 4-6 weeks? Everyone said I was doing so well, I thought for sure I'd be on the shorter end of that recovery span. But Tim reminded me I had a 2nd surgery only 3 weeks and 2 days ago. Ugh! Fine. I'm just tired of feeling like a burden to everyone and not feeling able to do all the things I want to do! Well, anyway, I had a dermatology appointment at 10:30, so Tim took me to that. I had some things under my left eye that she zapped and said I shouldn't wear make up on it for 24 hours. Great. Maybe I'll just wear my sunglasses for the rest of the day. We left there and went to Lowe's to get some supplies so that Tim could build a little cart for the plastic drawers we got to put my urostomy supplies in. All the plastic drawers that came with wheels were 24" high and I want it to fit under my vanity in the bathroom which is only 22" high. So we were able to get everything we needed and then we came home. Just in time for me to find out the antibiotics were causing me severe diarrhea. Nice. I had that lovely experience a few times and then finally texted my doctor in the afternoon explaining that only 2 1/2 days into the Cipro I was having severe diarrhea. I also explained that my sister had experienced tendon problems after she was on Cipro, so I was wondering if I could/should switch to something else. And guess what he said? Nothing - never heard back from him. Sigh. I had a nice nap in the afternoon and did more resting - haven't felt motivated to walk around the neighborhood like I had been. We had a potluck at our marriage class tonight. Tim got there early to help set up and I came late and left early. It was nice to be around everyone, but also pretty exhausting. After I came home Nathan & Nicole got home and wanted to watch more of the Mandalorian. Why not?! So we watched 3 more episodes - we're almost caught up! I think there are 2 more episodes, so maybe we'll watch them tomorrow night.
