i'm feeling pretty good and it's not because of the drugs. i took pain meds every 4 hours on thursday (day of surgery) as prescribed and drew that out to 6-7 hours thursday night/friday morning. i haven't had anything but a couple ibuprofens since 9am friday morning, and thankfully my mouth just isn't hurting.
i was nauseous all day friday - i assumed from lack of drinking/eating much. i know, i should have been better about it but jello and pudding are only so appealing. anyway as we were driving through the mountains of north carolina on friday i became a bit more nauseated and told mario andretti (aka j) to pull over. i hurled on the side of the interstate, let me add that to my portfolio. it was just as unpleasant as i remember it being 15 or so years ago. at least i hadn't eaten anything so it was just white and chunk-free.
anyway, this morning i went on a one mile walk for an attempt at some exercise. it took foreverrrr. walking is overrated, at least when you are running you get to where you're going a lot sooner. while my mouth isn't hurting, i didn't want to try running yet for fear of causing a dry socket. that mile is definitely being calculated into my weekly totals because they are pathetic this week. i'm hoping/aiming to try a short run tomorrow.
the tooth fairy (aka myself) didn't let me down, and i tried out my new toy on my big mile walk. i still have to get used to it and figure a few more things out. the bezel likes to acknowledge touches from any object other than my finger, which is kind of annoying. i opted for the 405 w/ hrm 'cause the cx didn't seem to be that much of an upgrade and i thought the 310 would swallow my small wrists. hopefully it won't tell me i'm slow like my nike+ did.
thanks for all well-wishes and ring compliments! j's head is growing bigger with each comment on the ring and my teeth seem to be listening and holding back the pain. now if they can just keep it up and refrain from dry-socketing i'll be good to go.
