I realized there was another C-section story I wanted to share. And I forgot at least one thing for my happiness post yesterday. (Wait, two. I just remembered another!)
- Local bookstores rock. I stopped by Bookbug on Wednesday to pick up a birthday present for my niece. The book I wanted to give her was out of stock, but they were able to order it that day, and I got an email that it was in yesterday afternoon. This will be the first big outing that’s just Anna and me. (Going to Nonna and Gpa’s doesn’t count.)
- The reason I was out all by myself on Wednesday? I got a pedicure. Back when I was pregnant with Sofia, Amber gave me a gift certificate for a pedicure. I finally cashed it in. My toenails are now nice and short as well as green and sparkly. This especially makes me happy because we’re off to Virginia soon, and there’s a strong possibility that I’ll be able to <gasp> wear sandals!
- It’s important for your bladder to be deflated when you have a C-section, so a catheter comes with the territory. The nice thing is that they wait until after the spinal block to insert it, so you don’t feel a thing. About six hours after the surgery, I suddenly thought, “I haven’t had to go to the bathroom in a really long time. That’s odd. I’ve had a ton to drink.” And then I remembered. Oh, right. Something is taking care of that.
