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.
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.
