Hi-Ho Back to work.

Well, they wonít let me have beer yet. It looks like Iíll be able to move up sometime around the 10th or 11th. As much as I was looking forward to rekindling my love of beer this week, it looks like Iím going to have to postpone for a while longer. Hey, itís better to be safe than sorry. Iíll be honest, itís starting to get hard to resist though. I do love my beer.

I also returned to work this week. Wow, that was much more difficult than I anticipated. I figured I had been sitting around the house doing nothing but playing on a computer; I might as well go back to work and do it. So I returned a couple of weeks early with the doctorís blessing. The first day wasnít so bad. I was tired and a little sore at the end of it, but I felt okay. Tuesday was a little harder. The fatigue and soreness presented itself much earlier in the day.

Yesterday was awful. I woke up sore and tired, the whole time I was at work I was sore and I even took some Tylenol while I was there to help reduce the discomfort. I generally do not like taking pain killers, even as weak as aspirin, but I needed something to help me to be more comfortable. Fortunately I was able to leave early so I could rest and take it easy.

This morning when I woke up, I felt fine. The soreness had gone away. I was still tired, even with going to bed early. This whole sleeping on my back thing is difficult. Iíve always slept on my side or stomach, and I just canít do that right now. If it doesnít start hurting right away, it does after a while. Hence I end up lying on my back again.

Iím really ready for all of this to go away so I can get back to feeling normal, but I have a feeling that there will be months of this left before I get back to that point in my life.
