I am starting the New Year off on the "RIGHT" foot.....it more ways than one. Since I can't even bear weight on my left foot that saying is appropriate. For the past ten days this is the view I look at most of the day and often times during the night as well.
This is my only mode of transportation. I am getting to be more of an expert now that I have had it over a week. I have to admit I have scuffed up the walls a bit.....turning corners has been a little tricky......and am guilty of running over one of our cat's tails. Poor Callie screeched for her life and I felt like crying. She insists on lying in front of me when I am trying to get around. I think she is worried about me and I have not been giving her her usual amount of daily affection.
Shelka loves to cuddle up on my pillows and won't let the cats near me....she is so jealous.
The past two days I have been able to wean down off of some of my pain meds and hope to continue to do so. They make me so sleepy. I haven't been up to doing much but sleeping and watching a lot of cooking shows on TV.
I have managed to read the HUNGER GAMES series...three books in all...I started the second one right before surgery. I have had lots of nightmares and 'hallucinations' from my drugs. My daughter pointed out that the books I was reading most likely contributed to a lot of the horror in my dreams.
I just started this new one Yesterday and love the story telling....The Book Thief.....if you haven't read it....it is worth picking up soon. I hope the movie is still out in theaters when I am able to walk around.
My goal for this weekend is to start working on some
repurposed books for the nurses and drs who took care of me.
This is my FAVORITE NURSE----Mr. P. He waits on me hand and foot and agreeing with our lovely grandchildren....Opa is the Bestest. His hairdo here is the result of 'beauty parlor' treatment here:
