Sleep does not come easily to me right now, in these short days after surgery. I’m up and agitated for hours in the night, unable to get comfortable (I have stitches 3/4 of the way around my chest), unable to stop thinking about it (there’s fluid literally sloshing where my breast used to be), unable to rest (there’s so much to plan and do now, and so much that I didn’t think I’d get to do, that it makes me rather giddy). Now that the drains are out, I am finally able to put Widget down to nap and to bed again, and I’m doing that each opportunity I can, but then I lie awake for hours, fidgety, not able to let go and get the rest I need. Or, worse, I nap with him in the afternoon and then find myself up late again without sleep. The pain is nearly gone, however, and that is wonderful news. I simply am uncomfortable and am having trouble sleeping.
