Well, I'll start out with some GOOD news! Jordan slept through the night without getting up ONCE for pain meds. or to pee! :)
However, at 5:30 am, she woke up needing pain meds. Right after giving her the pain pill, she began having an itch attack on her back. (I think it is from her back doing so much healing...or it could even be from the tape adhesives drying her skin out.)
So, I gave her an anti-itch pill. Within 30 mins after that, she felt sick on her stomach. She had stomach pains and nausea. I'm thinking it could be from taking the pills on an empty stomach. Yet, she has done this many times during the night when needing a pain pill or anti-itch pill, and it never made her sick before. Also, I'm not ruling out the dreaded menstrual cramps. The day after Christmas she "started" and hasn't had another since her surgery. So....it could very well be this too.
I finally got her settled downstairs in our chair and 1/2 recliner...with pillows behind her and all around her. It is 7:15ish and she has finally drifted back to sleep, after 2 hrs of going back and forth to the bathroom feeling sick with stomach pains. I'm so glad she is resting now...bless her little heart!
She is really getting around well though, but I have still noticed her breathing to be a little short and choppy at times. I'm looking forward to seeing what the sleep study results will show.
Ut Oh, she is moving and moaning...better go check on her...
