Been Feeling Like Two Dwarves: Drugged and Dopey

21 12 2007

Last Friday I got my Christmas present early — sinus surgery.

I dearly hope it will be a gift that keeps on giving, that it will fulfill my New Year’s Resolution of better breathing while sleeping, forever. (My new CPAP machine never quite delivered what I’d been wishing for.)

But for now, getting a post-surgery week before Christmas has made for a sort of backward holiday calendar. All my usual post-Christmas stupor in the big club chair with books and the tv remote came early, bumping my traditional pre-holiday socializing and activities. True, I’m doped up with drugs instead of rich foods and high-octane eggnog but still it feels practically the same, that delicious immobility while dreamy nothing-to-do-lists dance in your head.

I wonder if I’ll feel all bustly next week then, or if I’ll just have a double dose of drugged and dopey this year, and no bustle?

Strange. I don’t know whether to feel sympathy for you — or envy you 🙂

In fact, now you’ve got me wanting sinus surgery. Wonder if it’s too late to add it to my list.

At any rate, add my best wishes to your recovery 🙂

LOL (but Lynn, you made me snort that laugh, so right now you would NOT envy the way I feel!)

It has been nice — and the drugs are completely legal. 🙂

I was wishing for sinus surgery just last week! I swear if someone had offered to drill a hole in my head I would have gladly accepted. It sounds like you went about it the better way, though.

I hope you’re feeling well.
