The benefits of recovering from surgery

So when I was laying in bed last night and my boyfriend turns to me and says “So what do you want to do tomorrow?”  I instantly responded with a very enthusiastic “BAKE!”  

I don’t think he actually expected me to really bake as much as I did and eighty dollars later this happened.

I’ve never made cheesecake before but I’ve also never thought baking anything was very hard and I’ve great at following directions so I asked my boyfriend what he wanted me to bake his instant response was of course “I don’t care babe, whatever you want”  I don’t think men understand how incredibly annoying this response is because I’m whatever I’m baking your eating not me well maybe a little bit but furthermore I probed a little more and I started looking at recipees in my bookmarks.  I came across cheesecake and he lit up like a candle so I was like there we go! Cheesecake it is,  Now I couldn’t just make cheesecake cause thats boring so I made two cheesecakes and then came these little devils!

So surgery has it’s benefits as you have time off to actually do things you want to do but of course the pain still hurts really really bad.  I have found it really helps alot to sleep with someone so they can be there when things get really bad and you feel like your going to die.

That is exactly what happen this morning/last night around 3am.  See Bret knows that I have to take my med’s at exactly four hour intervals specifically overnight or I will literally die and not get any sleep so being the best man in the world he set my alarms for me and made sure I didn’t miss a dose.  Then right around 3 am this morning I woke up an hour before I was suppose to take my medication and I was in so much pain.  The hardest part about a tonsillectomy is sleeping in general.  You only get around 3 hours of sleep at a time and I haven’t had a full 8 hour night’s sleep in a week literally it’s been seven days so when you wake up at 3am in ton’s of pain the last thing you want to do is go back to sleep because you will just wake up again in more pain. 

I literally started crying.  There I was 3am sitting up in bed balling like a little baby and of course I woke Bret up.  He sits up and just gave me a big hug and was like what is wrong.  All I could say was I didn’t want to sleep because it would hurt and he coaxed me back to bed.  It was exactly what I needed at that point.  Maybe that’s why he is getting cheesecake tonight.  Whatever it is I was thankful to have him watching over me at night and I find I sleep better knowing someone is there with me.  Anyway baking is done and it is time for me to relax and enjoy my night.
