I woke up sleeping on my left side….

Two weeks and 5 days since my nephrectomy, I woke up in my favored sleeping position – on my left side.  It was just two days ago I whined to myself that if I could just turn over on my left side I could go to sleep.  This past week I’ve also been waking up in the morning a little nauseated and with no appetite…throw in a little dizziness throughout the day, I may be dehydrated.  It seemed I was drinking a lot of water but when I got on line I realized that I was not drinking 1/2 my body weight in ounces…and there is no way I’m going to share with you how many ounces that should be.  So…to my fellow nephrectomy peeps…drink up.

Against my better judgement, he and I went to the auction Friday night.  I was pretty tired from doing mostly nothing but wanted to get out of the house.  I realized just taking a shower, doing my hair and face that  I was tired but there were things to buy in my future!


I got two of these.  Made in Italy…I’m assuming tole…candle holders…I love them so much I can’t stop looking at them….and I got them for a fraction of what they are worth…It is probably going to require a wall redo…but so worth it…and I just know he agrees.

and this huge brown crock.  This thing is huge and heavy.  I could probably use it to make a year of sauerkraut for the family…hahahaha…or I could use it for a decoration.


He’s golfing today in a tournament…I have the house to myself…need to get laundry done…he worked hard on the camper yesterday – it is clean and ready to go.  I’m content.  Life is good.

Until next time…..

  1. I hope you feel better.

    When I had my lumpectomy, it took me over a year to sleep on that (right) side. The pinching nerves were driving me crazy. And after being 3 years our from surgery, I still have pains in that breast, to be expected. I hope your recovery goes a lot more smoother.


  2. Good morning! When I had my surgery, I had a stint in place, which ‘moved’ and could not be removed as it should have been at 3 weeks? post surgery… I had to go back nearly 2 months later for a quick procedure to remove it. I couldn’t sleep on my side until it was out and it would poke me from the inside at any given time. Once it was out – I could sleep on my side again. I love those sconces…. We are moving next month and I have to hold back from purchasing anything but I am itching to. Have a great day! Lois

  3. Oh, you said cRock…whew…good thing you threw in the pic. You will need to grow some cabbage now…quite a bit actually. You can also do dill pickles in them. You could sell them with vaping equipment.
