Apart from a visit from the District Nurse, there’s been little to report over the last couple of days. I’m managing my fluids carefully, and taking my medicines religiously. Output from my stoma appears to be very slowly reducing. But basically it’s all been about resting and recuperating.
The visit from the District Nurse was interesting mostly for how little she had to say to me, despite having been through exactly the same operation herself. In many ways I found her attitude rather annoying, as she was surprisingly negative – not something that I expected or needed. Perhaps I’m being uncharitable, but I found myself feeling relieved when she had left.
What is becoming clear to me is that despite my apparently endless need for more sleep, I do still have a lot of time on my hands, but very little energy available to actually fill it with anything productive. Consequently I’m making a list of things that I can pick up and put down as required, that don’t require stamina/physical strength, but that I’ve been put off doing for lack of time in the past. I figure I’ll start off with tidying up my study so I can actually see the surface of my desk again, and then rebuild my home server, updating the hardware and software to improve its resilience, before installing and teaching myself Asterisk, so I can implement a home PBX.
That ought to eat up a week or two 🙂
