Yeah, so, 2nd day of post-op is reputed to be the worst. For Mom yesterday this was certainly true. Unfortunately her mindset seems to have suffered terribly as well. Her viewpoint seems prone to helplessness and fatalism, she has not yet been able to comply with PT, and she is caught in the catch-22 between being being debilitated by sleep from all the pain meds, or just debilitated by unbearable pain.
I don’t know but it’s day #3 and if she doesn’t get up and move her ass soon we’re going have a whole new world o’ hurt on our hands.
