Getting my groove back...

Friday, October 07, 2011

Itseems while I was on my medical leave (for hand surgery) I got into some bad habits: Staying up too late and wasting a lot of time playing scrabble online. I am finally back to Sparking in the morning when I get up (at 5:00 a.m.) It is hard to get used to getting up early after sleeping in for 3 weeks but I just have to get to bed earlier...I did go to bed about 9:00 last night and fell asleep pretty quickly. Perhaps I need to go to bed at 8:00, so plan to try that tonight.

My body is still rebelling against the new/old schedule. I am definitely glad today is Friday. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

    Many retirees face that problem. I certainly do. Some people continue their disciplined life, but others don't. You are wise to get back on schedule!

    It is amazing how quickly we can form new habits and then pay the price for them, once your routine needs to go back to ariginal schedule. Hoping you have a nice weekend and fine next week.

A SNAFU upon return to work...

Thursday, October 06, 2011

So there I was sitting at my desk and the department manager informed me that I was to work full time. Apparently I had forgotten to mention to the PA-C that I wanted to return to wok part time (for 2 weeks) and I didn't read the return to work slip.....

I worked until I couldn't stand it (about 5 hours) and my hand was quite painful so I went home and talked to the PA-C (physician's assistant- consultant) the next day (Wednesday) and he faxed me a work slip with addendum stating I could work up to 4 hours a day for 3 weeks. That worked out well for me as I had only requested 2 weeks of part time.

I plan to get some doctor and dentist appontments taken care of in early afternoons.... have to get my teeth cleaned, get a followup visit wtih neurologist (regarding my eyes) and see the podiatrist for removal of my left big toenail. (Can hardly wait for that last one!) emoticon

    Glad you got the work issues fixed and can schedule your appointments in the afternoons.
Sorry about your big toenail. I could skip that one.

Back to work today after 3 week medical leave...

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

I got my stitches out last week on Monday and today I start back half time for 2 weeks. Doctor put restrictions on (5 lb lifting restriction and no more than 2 hours of stuffing envelopes as it requires a lot of dexterity). It will seem strange going back to work after3 week "vacation."

I would have loved to have gone to a warm climate for the last week but unfortunately could not afford it. I did enjoy sleeping late (9 and 10 a.m.) instead of my usual 5 a.m.

Gotta run now as I have to get ready for work. Hope everyone has a great day.

    I'm glad that you're feeling better. Don't over-do it at work, though! Good luck.

iT'S Wednesday////

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Have I forgotten how to type? Anyhow have been getting lots of rest. Have not been ambitious about cleaning the house (it would be one-handed so am waiting awhile yet before I do anything "useful."

So far am resting and sleeping long at night. Looking forward to getting the stitches out in 5 days. Can't wait to swim and whirlpool again. emoticon emoticon

Can't believe it is Saturday already!!!

Saturday, September 17, 2011

My cat scratched arm is still hurting more than my operated one except when I try to open jars, etc. The Keflex caused a temporary side-effect that was rather unpleasant but is better. Tummy ache, etc.

I went to bed at 6:00 p.m. last night and got up in the middle of the night to play on the computer for a couple of hours. So I got a total of 11 hours of sleep. No wonder my back and shoulders are sore from lying in bed so long.

I am looking forward to getting my stitches taken out in 9 days.... emoticon

    Why do cats run us? They own the home and run it their way.
Glad you got the cat but hope you are healing from scratches quickly and your hand surgery. emoticon emoticon
