I have been feeling better and better lately. My energy level is coming back slowly, and I am enjoying all the little things in life that I am now able to do again. I even got brave yesterday and tried on my favorite jeans... They were definitely tight, but I got them on, so that was encouraging! I finally got the chance to drive my car again too. I am used to driving about 2,000 mi per month, so to stop driving completely for 8+ weeks made me really miss it!
I went for a Postpartum doctor's visit yesterday, and I seem to be on my road to a physical recovery (finally). My BP is still running high, but they are not concerned with that. Dr. Rao said that it may take a few more weeks for that to level out. My pulse is now normal as I go about my daily duties. I'm sure that the low pulse rate was just a result of the bed rest.
Tonight, Josh is taking me on a date! We used to make it a habit to go out every Friday by ourselves and do something, so this will be a nice treat. He won't tell me what he's got planned. All I know is that I'm supposed to be casual, wear jeans, and bring a jacket. Hmmm... What could that be?!?
