So I’ve Been in Bed

This is the view I had for my four day trip to the hospital a few weeks ago. Fortunately nothing serious was wrong I just have had some chronic pain issues to deal with but it sure is scary to be in so much pain than not even a shot of morphine can ease it entirely.

I have to admit, it was almost enjoyable to be in hospital. You absolutely can’t do anything except rest and get better. Once they discharged me and I was home again it was hard not to do things even though I was meant to be on bed rest. In hospital I had midwives checking my blood pressure, the baby’s heartbeat and my pain levels three or four times a day. At home, I just had to hope everything was going well.

So this is where I’ve been. In bed, mostly. I’ve been very frustrated and a bit withdrawn. I can’t do too much of anything at all without getting very tired and sore.  I don’t think I’ll be going back to work except for the odd half day before Christmas. I still have three months to go before this baby is fully cooked. That’s a lot more time in bed!
