Today is just another day where I hop around on crutches and try to find things to do where I don't have to get up. Right now I am going to just do my computer things and then when the soaps come on, head upstairs to knit and enjoy the suns warmth that comes into my bedroom

No weight..

Sunday, October 18, 2009

This morning I was feeling sort of good and sort of courageous. I gave myself my B12 shot and then on crutches, approached the scale. I put my good foot to make the numbers on the scale go to zero... then I attempted to try and get myself on the scale and I didn't make it... not even close.

So I guess for a while, the only way I know how much I weight until the cast comes off or while uncasted at a doctors offfice

    With a heavy cast on you would not get an accurate weight, so you would be better to wait.

    Don't worry about the scale -- It can't be accurate with a cast and trying to balance is DANGEROUS! Take good care of yourself!

Day 4 post surgery

Saturday, October 17, 2009

Today the weather is sucky again. Four days of GRAY and rain. Last night we noticed that the pin in my toes had shifted and at this point the pain is not severe enough to drive me into the ER.

I still don't want to eat even though everything I see on television makes me hungry. Keeping up the fluids so I don't get dehydrated. Making lists also for my husband to go to the grocery store. He has not done a major shopping trip by himself in YEARS. I was told to be as specific as possible as to what I what. Thank goodness for cell phones.

In a little while, I am going upstair to the bedroom where I might feel more comfortable than I am in the family room. All I want is some independence back.

    Sure hope you feel well soon! Get that man to the store and make him shop! Perhaps he will now appreciate all you do now? Hoping the pain eases and you return to your independence soon! I know how that is! Peace, Melissa

Since the surgery I have no appetite at all. This morning I forced myself to eat a piece of toast and some bacon since the pain meds are putting me to sleep fairly quickly after taking them.

Today I just plan to kick back and relax again. Hubby is putting up the backsplash for me because several of the tiles need to be cut and there is no way I can stand up long enough to cut them.

    Hope your pain subsides soon, but I suppose not eating will help with your weight loss, get well soon. emoticon

    No appetite, relaxing, pampering -- that sounds good to me.

Day 2 recovery

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Last night was fun. To get to our bedroom I had to go up 20 steps. So I did what my father in law did at their house. Sat on the steps and scooted up. Problem though was that at the top step I had a heard time pulling myself up.. so I scooted into the bedroom, came close to a recliner in there and tried to pull myself up. Did not work well.. So hubby sat on the bed, told me to turn around and then pulled me from under the arms onto this chest. Then he managed to get out from under me so I could roll over on the bed and pull myself up on the bed. What a workout...

All night long I kept feeling my toes with that tinlging feeling and had to hang my foot over the bed several times to get it to stop.

This morning the nerves are starting to come back to life and the meds are working off.

To get down the stairs it was easy, I basically bounced down all the way and hubby met me with the cructches. I am now get up on the sofa and just doing some thing on the computer before I write some cards/thank you notes out

    That's a workout, and after surgery it doesn't take long to get worn out the first few days.
