I walked over to Starbucks again this morning, and, like yesterday, I was exhausted when I got back. If I go slow, I feel pretty decent.
Well, the recovery ward is empty. I'm the only one here, but yet, when I went past the nurse's station, there are still two nurses here. I figure it's facility rules to always have at least two here. At least they have a light load today and tonight, but I'm sure that surgeries will start up again tomorrow morning.
Fortunately, though, I was able to avoid the booty blisters this time. They put one of those large pads underneath me, but it has a plastic layer, as well. I think the plastic layer retains or reflects the heat back at me. I think it is what caused my booty blisters previously and started to warm me up this time, too. I kinda push it to the side, especially when sleeping, in order to keep my booty blister-free.
This afternoon, the wife and I walked to the Scottsdale Culinary Festival here in downtown Scottsdale. They had some food booths out, and this one rib joint smelled delicious. I had a small plate of ribs and they totally hit the spot. It made me wonder if the protein cravings will kick in after surgery.
