This really has been a humbling experience. I hadn’t really been sick before this. The sickest I’d been was my wisdom teeth. This is a whole different ballgame. The first week I slept, watched movies and played Civ. I feel like Rip Van Pocket – I went to sleep, and woke up a week later and it was winter. It really took a full 10 days to feel better and I am still in some pain after 15 days – my whole tummy area feels swollen and tender, and I get vagina knives if I sit up for too long. I’ll admit that I was dubious about the 2 wk recovery, but it’s flown by and I needed most of it. Thursday was really the first day that I didn’t have to go lie down at least twice during the day. I also cooked a fun beef rending with a coconut that came in my box on Friday. And I also cooked a really good turkey bean soup with a smoked turkey carcass.
