Monday - cabin break out


Monday, May 27, 2013

Memorial day - 7 days after the surgery - major cabin fever. Convinced my DH to take a short drive on this gorgeous day. We were only out an hour which was more than enough time. Can't do it too often until better healed.

I don't like to take any medication as just a mild dose affects me strongly. I did take a non-narcotic pain medicine and sure enough slept most of the day.

Tomorrow PT comes to my house for the first time. I believe I am on track with where I was for the first hip. I heard I will have the same PT which I'm thrilled about.

My current plan is to work part time over the next couple of weeks, minimizing meetings and answering email. Thankfully I have a fantastic manager chain so the only pressure I'm getting is self induced. (which on its own can be quite strong).

Appetite is still weak. Forcing myself to eat to keep up my energy. This too shall pass.

    Glad you will have the same PT - familiarity always helps.
