Post-Op Fistulotomy Day One

I planned to take today off work to recover from surgery yesterday and I'm glad I did. I'm primarily just tired for an overall "how do you feel", though of course there is pain at the surgical site. Hydrocodone is handling that pretty well, but of course that makes me a bit fuzzy.

This afternoon I noticed I felt a bit warm, and my legs were actually feeling a sweaty, so I took my temp and I'm running a low fever of 100.0F. The surgeon said to call in 24/7 if it got over 101F, so we'll be watching that closely through the night.

I've not gotten nearly enough water today - which I'm sure isn't helping, but I'm working on it.

Unless things really tank with the fever, I will be getting up and working tomorrow morning - thankfully I have the refuge of the laptop and recliner should my desk chair prove to be too uncomfortable.
