My foot surgery was on Wednesday, and went pretty well, as far as I know. Today is the first day I feel that I don't need any pain medication, which is all to the good, in my book! I am under strict orders not to put any weight on that foot, period, and I've been managing with one accidental touch-down on it. That hurt!
I've made sure not to do that again.
Asking Mr. ShellHawk for help all the time has been almost as hard as sitting around all day with my foot elevated, watching TV and posting my ornaments to my Etsy store. The loss of independence is almost maddening. He will later be assisting me with today's big event: a shower! Woo-hoo! Who knew that taking a shower by one's self was the mark of independence? He's been great about everything, though, and I'm very grateful to have him.
It's been hard to track what's going on around me with the pain meds. They make me sleepy. That should get better now that I don't seem to need them, for the moment, at least.
So anyway, since I've taken the trouble to post ornaments, go buy some so that Mr. ShellHawk can get out of the house for a little while, o.k.?
