Suddenly, the throbbing and stabbing feelings appeared full-force. I jolted Mireille awake and she violently tore off the splint and loosened the layers of bandages. She also reached for a full dose of heavy narcotics.
The pain meds didn't really work all that well. Although, I'm sure it would have felt a lot worst without them. Background pain lasted until late evening. Nothing shooting and sharp; just an uncomfortable and tiring sensation.
So, I was supposed to be put on the CPM machine to help with range of motion and had a list of exercises to do. Ha! There was no way I was moving today. Mireille just slept and I took it easy.
(P.S.: A big thanks to my coworkers for the "get well soon" gift!)
