Day 12 After Surgery
Saturday, March 30, 2013
I'm still going strong and I still have to give my sister Thoms1 so much credit for my recovery. She's a keeper for sure. I have been dressing myself, no easy feat when you can't bend over. But with the help of those reacher thingys and my old faithful wooden back scratcher I can drag my pants up my leg within acceptable reach. Of course I wear pretty much the same thing every day. But at least I don't look like an invalid.
Today Becky suggested we go for a very short walk around the block to see how I would do. I said yes right away but inside I was thinking but it's cold out there. I have to say that I have been running a bit cold since the surgery. I am sure there is some explanation for it but I am still cold. I will be going to Easter Vigil Lights Mass this evening. The first time I am going back to church since the surgery. I look forward to it but I won't be getting up and down a lot tonight. I am taking a cushion with me, I know it will be almost two hours long I wish I could dress up for it but I just can't. My feet and ankles are still swollen so I am hoping I can fit me feet into something other than my old red winter clogs. I wish all a very happy Easter!
