Insult to Injury..

It just seems slightly unfair that right after I have surgery i also get a cold. AND because of the nature of the surgery i cannot blow my nose. IF I were to make the mistake to blow my nose there is a good chance that I would rip out the stitches in my nose...(you know the stitches that were used to close the incision they made to widen my nasal passage)...and start to leak CS fluid (the spinal fluid around your brain) and that doesn't really sound like a good idea or a pleasant experience. But I suppose that breathing through your nose is a little overrated.

But on the bright side of life, I am moving on Monday. YAY! I've been slowly packing up my stuff over the past couple of days and all that's left is the stuff that I really can't pack until the last moment or stuff that I'm not going to pack...clothes, bedding, bathroom stuff etc. It's amazing how much stuff you can accumulate. I looked around my room and it's not a very big room but when i started putting everything into boxes it seemed like there was way more stuff than there should be. Most of the boxes are filled with my books. I tried to spread them out and put in lighter stuff but most of the boxes are pretty heavy. I've got friends helping me but it's three flights of stairs...that's a lot of stairs and i'm not "technically" allowed to lift anything (so says my doctor...if i strain too much it can cause more of the tricky CS fluid to leak...that sounds kind of strange)...but i feel bad about having other people carry all the big/heavy stuff, so we'll see how i'm feeling on monday. I'm pretty excited. We haven't actually seen the apartment but we've seen the model and they're pretty nice and since ours is on the third floor (top floor) we get vaulted ceilings and i think there's a wood burning fire place...which would be nice with this cold weather we've been having lately. I'm excited. Excited to be out on my own. Excited to move in with Sarah. Just plane old excited!!! I'll post pictures once we get all settled.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I sure hope you don't have to sneeze. Just keeping track of you through your blog. Hope the surgery and apartment give you some relief. We'll just keep waiting for you to come home to CA.

How did the move go? Did you follow doctor's orders? No spinal fluid drippage, I presume?

Hope you're feeling better!

Congratulations KellBell! What a wonderful adventure ahead of you! I wish you the best! Your apartment sounds so wonderful! DON'T YOU LIFT A SINGLE THING. They know what they are talking about. When K8 was 7 months old, I had major abdominal surgery with an 8" cut and they told me not to lift anything heavier than 5 lbs. Hahaha. K8 was 35 lbs. Luckily I didn't have any worry like spinal fluid, but my poor scar is about an inch wide as a result of my lifting my baby around.
Good luck Sweetie

Good for you... did you actually move though? Annie continues to write blogs saying they are moving and then they don't... sometimes the blogs themselves disappear!

Congrats if you did and hope your fluid stayed in place!
