Going from Vicodin to Tylenol.

Hello friends – I thought I’d do a quick update on my lunch.

I started the day out dancing in my car on the way to work. The sun was shining, I made the perfect pot of coffee, Iggy was in a hyper mood (which I love) and when I jumped in the car to head to work, a Sean Paul remix was on. Any song remixed by Sean Paul makes me dance right out of my chair. I tried to contain myself since I just had the surgery though but I tell you, it was difficult.

I’m feeling fairly good, all things considering. I decided to attempt today with no Vicodin because I’m driving and going to work. So far, the Tylenol is doing a pretty good job at taming the pain. The first surgery I had in November scared the crap out of me. I took the Vicodin for about a week and a half and when I tried to ween (sp?) myself off it, I realized I felt withdrawal symptoms. Remember me complaining that I felt like my finders and feet were going to wiggle themselves right off me? I thought I was crawling out of my own skin! No way am I going to go through that again.

I had a ton of emails to go through so this morning was spent at my desk. I have some meetings and interviews this afternoon. Luckily my job primarily consists of desk work or sitting in meetings, nothing too active. I wore a loose fitting maxi dress with a 3/4 sleeve sweater so feel very comfortable.

I thought I’d take a few pictures to show you how I look, clothed since I realized I’ve been showing you a lot of pictures that are, while somewhat appropriate for the nature of recent conversations, show me partially undressed.

Oh yes, I know you love bathroom photos πŸ™‚
Carlos isn’t here to snap the pictures so I had to do them myself.

I have to tell you, I LOVE the results of the surgery. While I’m not perfect, the results are perfect. There is no skin left to hang over, it is exactly what was needed to stop the pinching pain I was experiencing.

Ok, ok – I just had to update you quick while I was thinking about it but I need to get back to work and continue to dig out. I normally don’t take a lunch so even sitting here writing to you feels weird and slightly inappropriate.

Have a great Tuesday!
