Tired of being tired

I woke up this morning feeling like I had a really bad hangover. Still tired, dizzy, disoriented after 8+ hours of sleep. This is Day 5, post-op, and I still feel knocked for a loop.

I guess the surgery was more extensive than I had thought it would be. As they were wheeling me into the operating room, I asked how long it would take, and they said two and a half hours. I was flabbergasted. They fix major structural problems in joints in less time than that. Perhaps that was because it's so hard to work inside your head. Who knows? In any case, it's a long time to be under anaesthesia.

Still, I feel like I ought to be getting up and doing something. Going for a walk would be nice, but I'm afraid I'm still too wobbly for it. I nap off and on throughout the day still. At least I think I can give up sleeping on the couch. It would save my back to sleep in my own bed tonight.

Meanwhile, I can't wait for the doctor to take this splint -- or whatever it is -- out of the backside of my face. Other than that, there's been no real discomfort. I breathe fine.
