Recovery Week Four

I will warn you up front that there will be lots of pictures of flowers in this post.  I am in love with the spring weather we are having here in Houston and possibly more in love with the flowers and plants I got planted last weekend.

If you are a hater of flowers, this will be a tough post for you.  And while I am on things I love, I love that this is my view right now.

I am working from my beautiful dining room right now...I really love this room in my house.

As far as recovery goes, I am feeling pretty good.  I am back driving now which I missed.  It is nice to be able to run to the post office or shopping.  I still can't pick up heavy items, of course, and I do still get very tired in the afternoon.

One of the most frustrating things to me right now is not being able to go to the gym.  Since I lack that ability I kind of have a terrible attitude of well since I can't really work on the weight loss I might as well eat whatever I want.  So counter productive.  I have some good days with food and some bad days.  I guess I should be happy they are not all bad days.

The other thing that still freaks me out a bit is that my lower belly is still asleep.  I have very little feeling down there, I can feel pressure, but not much more.  I am told this is normal, but it is still super weird.  That's great that it's normal, but why does that happen!?  Crazy.  I have talked with some friends who have had c-sections and they have had the same experience.  Ehh.

Yesterday I took the opportunity to get my hair cut.  It was kind of nice to go get my hair cut at 10:45 AM on a Wednesday.  I could get used to that.  I got 6 inches cut off, added some layers and some side swept bangs.

(I was parked while taking this picture)

Love it.  Thanks Rob!

I hope you are having a great week!
