Don't you just love Bruno Mars' The Lazy Song? It could be an anthem for ME/CFS (without "lazy" in the name of course), and it perfectly describes how I am feeling today
It has been another loooong, difficult week. Craig is still in bad shape, trying to recover from his knee surgery two weeks ago, but in a lot of pain still and pretty exhausted. He hasn't been to school in two weeks. We saw the surgeon yesterday who said this is all normal. He said,"I drilled holes in his knee - it should still hurt!" He said the recovery will be similar to if he fractured a bone. So, two more weeks (at least) with the immobilizer and crutches. Craig asked for ibuprofen this morning instead of Percocet, so I am hoping that is a good sign.
As for me, that trip to Washington, DC, on Wednesday really did me in! I was only in the meeting for 3 hours and slept/rested on the bus there and back, but by the time I got home at 6 pm, I was totally wiped out - severe aches all over, sore throat, and killer headache. Yesterday was my husband's birthday and Craig's follow-up doctor's appointment, so I spent the day running around and cooking (but, man, those lemon bars were amazing!). I am still exhausted this morning and so very glad it is Friday and we don't have to be anywhere. Hence, the decision not to do anything today....it can all wait until Monday, right?
I am even considering ordering pizza for dinner - damn the gluten-free/dairy-free diet!
P.S. I have NO idea why there are guys in monkey masks in this music video!
