Is it still recovery?
Or do I just need some peace and quiet?
So I had my colonoscopy, and was told everything was just fine, thank God!
My plans were to go right back to work the morning after the procedure (yesterday), but then I found out the doctor gave me two days of sick-leave. And that's how I understood that I really really needed some time out...
So today is my second day at home. My legs still feel a little shaky, or maybe I'm just imagining it... anyway, still a little afraid to go back to my walking routine in earnest. Mostly cross-stitching, and doing some neglected house-cleaning (including my mother's home, which is quite another story). Today I plan to sew the skirts I promised my granddaughters. Yesterday helped their mother, who started college this week (with much apprehension), with her assignment in Introduction to Greek Philosophy - so we cuddled together and read and discussed Socrates.
What can be better?
The guilt, of course, is always present at the background... telling me I should be doing this and that, I'm not moving ahead with the PhD data collection, I have things to do at work, and all this ironing, and I should already be moving more, and....... whatever.
Whatever. I'm still on sick leave today.
Yes, I think I'm still recovering.
The rest of the world will have to wait for me.
