Tedium?

PT is going swimmingly, I am reducing the number of times per day I take Hydrocodon,and my leg itches ready for the removal of staples Friday.  You’re a fast healer, says VJ.  I’m bending my knee 120 degrees. I don’t know what else the outpatient therapy can do for you, he adds. Help me to stop bobbing when I walk, I suggest?

I’m reading the newspaper most days, as well as my various magazines, Arthritis Today, Gluten Free Living, Weight Watchers and others, all of them delivered noiselessly to my iPad. (Make sure you are well supplied with various forms of entertainment, during a convalescence period.)

Kathy and I had a discussion about a bird yesterday.  She said it was a Vireo.  I pulled up my Yard Bird APP and showed her it was not.  I got to get into the twentieth century, she says, a few years late. Tomorrow she sees her Opthomologist to determine when she should have surgery.

Once again, poor David is getting a good night’s rest as I have fewer needs. I’ve been making comfort food for him, chicken and dumplings over the weekend, today beef stew.

So that’s what we do as we recover from a difficult surgery…nothing much.  The hardest part of getting better for me, is the forced inactivity.

                                                               —000—

Don’t blame me for the clown in the White House, I didn’t vote for him. I believed John McCain when he warned us about Putin.  While others laughed, I believed Mitt Romney when he said Putin was a threat.  Mr Obama’s infamous “reset” button with Russia has resulted in Mr. Putin’s latest evil trick…to ignore the missile treaty signed in 1987 (under Gorbechev, whom Putin considers a traitor). So what’s next?  No wonder the Poles are concerned.

  1. I’m so happy to hear that your PT is going well! The iPad is a great way to pass the time. There’s an app called Zite that aggregates news stories based on your likes. And it’s free! The meals sound wonderful. If only I enjoyed cooking.

  2. I’m glad you’re recuperating well. Speaking of politics and such, I’m only able to visit right now because I’m proctoring in honolulu for a bar exam. One of my Zumba friends thought it would be fun. It’s not. The room is freezing and I’m bored out of my gourd. We are just sort of warm bodies in the testing room. I do feel the tension of the 150 potential lawyers whose careers depend on this outcome.

  3. Even though I don’t agree with your reading of politics I am definitely impressed with the way you have overcome your current difficulties. Your suggestions for as easy a way to recovery as possible in the face of immobility and pain are spot on and I would endorse them whole-heartedly.

    Continue on your way and you will soon be up and running. (literally)

    • I voted for Bill the first time he ran. I admired him when he was the governor of Arkansas. I liked his moderate politics. We had a surplus because Clinton had to deal with a Republican Congress, I.e., Newt Gingrich. Don’t mind spending on domestic programs as long as they don’t overlap each other. The problem in Washington is that nothing is ever sunsetted and much money is wasted.

      Whether we like it or not, Putin will start another arms race. He has nothing to lose. Hopefully, the Europeans will wake up and join the US efforts regarding sanctions on Russia. Problem now is that they need the Russian oil.
