I can’t believe it has been two weeks since my surgery!

I have been wanting to write a post and have even had a few false starts… however, my concentration hasn’t returned yet so I end up giving up.

So here I am trying again.

Okay, so first, the surgery… it went as well as expected according to the surgeon.  However, as significant amount of endometriosis was discovered and I lost an ovary to this.  I am on the mend but much more slowly than I had anticipated.  I still have pain in my tummy and at the incision.  I still have a fair number of bruises, some are fading, some don’t seem like they’ll ever budge!  The pain causes more fatigue and I’m finding myself napping, or attempting to, in the afternoons.  Lastly, as I already mentioned, my concentration has been impaired.  I’m sure, in time, this will return to normal but I need to give it time.

So I have been doing puzzles–crosswords, word searches and fill-ins–and watching a ton of Christmas movies.  So much so that I have actually come up with an idea of my own and put pen to paper with it this morning.  The trouble with that is the kitten who keeps trying to either help or steal my pen!

I’m not sure which it is.  Between him and my lack of focus it’s going to be hard enough to try to get the ideas from brain to page.

There is much going on outside my recovery, most of which is having a negative impact on my recovery.  I won’t get into that right now but let’s just say that I am definitely back in the hunt for a new job.

I’m going to end it here before the focus cuts out and I start to ramble!  I hope it gets easier to focus and write sooner than later.

As always, I will keep you posted.
