A Response

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

In response to the comments on my last blog: Some things simply cannot be done with reachers......It is IMPOSSIBLE to live without bending. (I'm not even talking about a deep bend...it can be a slight one that does it too). My husband is not well and he cannot take care of every single thing. I try very hard to be mindful when I bend but there is always going to be that one time when you DON"T think about your hip when you bend. And it's those times that get me. I will try hard to remember....and harder now that I know I'm not completely safe. I was lured to complacency by the doctor's reassurances that this hip joint is different. And yes, it IS more secure, which is why I didn't take an ambulance ride yesterday.....but it is not 100% foolproof.

Anyway...this begins day two of bedrest....And why am I writing this at 4:40 AM? Because my back has been killing me all night and I got sick of trying to get comfortable enough to sleep. It ain't happenin'.So the day begins with exhaustion. I hope I will be able to nap later.

    It's tough to learn to live with your limitations!
I'm wearing a boot for this foot surgery, only walking to bathroom and to bed and within 6 hours of moving around the house with my bed slipper on my other foot I realized I was killing my lower back which has 2 herniated disks.
This morning I'm wearing a sneaker which matches the height of the boot but the damage is done. Pain down the "good" leg.

    Oh Cynthia dear, I'm feeling for you so much! I hope that you can get a good nap later on. That's what I feel I'll need too.

Love and hugs to you, Karen emoticon emoticon emoticon
