Back to work full time....after 6 weeks...

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I was off work full time 3 weeks and then half time 3 weeks. It will be strange today working a full day after so much time off work.

The big toenail removal went well. I watched while he did that and was amazed how quickly it was done. This morning took off the dressing (as instructed) and replaced with a large bandaid. Surprisingly, the anesthesthetic is not worn off yet. I can wear my regular shoes today and hope things aren't too uncomfortable when the numbing effect is gone.

Have to remember to pack a lunch and snack today as I will be working full time today. emoticon

What did I do to get this backache?

Monday, October 24, 2011

I have no idea. But when I woke up this morning I wanted to lie down again and get some more sleep. I did get 8 hours but lately my body has been wanting 10, 11 and sometimes 12 hours I have a follow-up appointment with the neurologist I saw 1 time back in January of this year and it may be related to one of th prescriptions he prescribed (or not). Hopefully, I can go off 1 or 2 of these medicines.

Today I have my follow-up with the hand surgeon and most likely will be released back to work full time. I plan to ask him about the crazy-big arm splints the physical therapist supplied me with. I actually feel my hands at times hurt more because of these contraptions. I have to remember to bring them with. My appointment is in about 2 hours so have to keep moving.....

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

    My back hurts lot anyway, from surgery that didn't
fix all. However, if I lie down very much, my back
aches like a toothache, or if rain is in the forecast.
Hope your appointment goes well and that your
back pain eases off.

    Hope your appointment goes well today!
with all those prescriptions maybe you should join us in the eye condition forum
cautions and questions we have a discussion about that subject going on right now.

Hurray, it's Friday!!!

Friday, October 21, 2011

This coming Monday I will see my hand surgeon in the morning for follow-up and probable return to full time work. In the afternoon I will see the podiatrist to remove my left big tonail which I dropped a can of pop on about 15 years ago and has never been the same since. I can hardly wait.... emoticon

Thursday is garbage day....

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Gotta leave on time so I can put the garbage out before leaving for work so cannot blog a long one.

I have been late for work twice last week (traffic problems) and so I have been barely making it to work on time this week and need to leave in plenty of time in case of bad traffic again.

Next week I will be back to working full time and still am not up to par.....I slept about 12 hours last night so you know I didn't get anything done as far as paperwork or housework. Tonight I will go to gym after work and get some pool exercise so I won't feel so decrepit.

    It definitely takes quite a while to feel up to par from having surgery. I think you are doing a great job. Just take it easy on yourself for a while...your strength and energy will return.

    Amazing how much surgery can wear one out for quite a long time after surgery and recovery has started.

    Just do the best you can. You are soming back from surgery and still making progress. What can you do about traffic except leave earlier? HUGS!

What do corn nuts and gummy bears have in common?

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

They both are damaging to fillings and/or teeth....

My hubby lost a filling while eating a gummy bear....
Hard to believe...

I knew corn nuts were culprits in broken teeth but the gummy bears are a new one on me. The day before this happened someone at work said they lost a filling eating a gummy bear and I thought it was a stale one...but hubby's were fresh...

    Thanks for the warning! Since my granddaughters left some gummy bears at my house, I have become addicted to them for my evening snack. On another note, several years ago, I did some dental damage while eating a hard pretzel! They were fresh too!
