Light at the end of the tunnel
Thought I'd stop by and say hi, and thank you for all your prayers and well wishes.
Recovery is not easy, and sometimes I think about the elderly people that go through this surgery and marvel at how they get through it in their state of health, and advanced age.
One of my worst nightmares for the surgery was to hear them working on me under my anesthetic, and it happened! At one point I heard them hammering in something metal, and a lot of tugging. I think I must have faded out at that time, and later came to again to hear my surgeon talking about the tortilla soup recipe that he made the night before! I asked him the next day if it was he who was talking about the soup recipe, and he was indeed!
I'm bruised and swollen, but every day is getting much better. I will soon be graduating to a cane, which will feel like I have more control.
I'm using this beautiful flickr image, since I don't have anything to photograph on my own. The photographer is Stuart McMullan.
I'm kind of back, and I'm reading all your fun blogs. I will be updating my blog as much as possible, with thoughts of my recovery and things to look forward to like: Did you all see the cool things coming to Target on March 14?? Liberty of London, designed many products for them, from clothing to housewares! I don't care if I'm hobbling, I will be there on that day!!!
