Varicose Vein Surgery update

Its been seven and a half weeks now since I had my Varicose vein surgery. That time has gone quick and it has not been easy. The days after my last update detailing the surgery and the week after was hard. It was like I jinxed my recovery. The pain suddenly doubled and I was needing to take the codeine and ibuprofen on the rigid set hours it was due. The Codeine would then knock me out and I would need to sleep for an hour or two until the effects wore off. This was not good. Daddy M was due to go back to work for a few days before his Christmas leave, J needed to get to school and I had S to look after. Considering I couldn't even stay awake this was a mission. One I could not complete. We ended up sending S to her Grandads (2 hours away) for a few days until Daddy M was back on leave as I just couldn't look after her. (She loved looking after his neighbours chickens with him, and the quality 1:1 time). J thankfully is old enough to get herself dressed and isn't as high needs so we asked a few favours from some of the school mums to be able to collect her and drop her back home afterwards. Without their help I don't know what we would have done. It really is true from the research I did online, the two-three weeks after the surgery is the worst.
