This morning, I woke up early. I felt full of ambition, ready to fully greet this brand-new day.
The impact of having undergone throat surgery only yesterday hit me hard. I simply swallowed, and realized that my throat was terribly sore.
I got up to take yet another round of pain medication, as well as my antibiotic and medrol dose-pack. I decided to go back to bed for a few hours, to simply rest.
Yes, I have so very much to do. There are tasks to complete, for both of my part-time positions. This morning, however, my first priority simply needs to be to take of myself.
Sometime today, I’ll expect to receive a phone call from the hospital’s surgery center. They’ll be checking in to see how I’m doing today.
