I remember now how much I started hating my bedroom, the television, sleeping . . . when I had my surgery back in February. Now I feel like I'm in an episode of the Twilight Zone as I sit here, once again, staring at a black TV screen with just the word ROKU moving randomly around the screen. Every now and then I go back and find something else to watch on Netflix or Hulu or one of the other channels on there. Heck, I've even watched a few Twilight Zone episodes! I have DIRECTV, but there sure isn't anything on there I want to watch. I really don't even like TV that much, but my entertainment options are pretty limited right now. Guess I need to have someone dig out some books that I haven't had the time to read.
I went to see my orthopedic surgeon yesterday. Of course it had to be the same surgeon that operated on me in February. He walked into the examining room, looked at me and said, "You know, you really didn't have to go break a bunch of bones to come back and see me."
Yea, at least he made me laugh. That was just before he commented on what a heck of job I did at breaking these bones. He says I need a plate and screws to stabilize one of them. I already knew that was coming from talking to the ER personnel at the hospital, but I still didn't want to hear it. Surgery is now scheduled for Thursday.
After that, I suppose I will become much better at using this ROKU that my son put on my TV months ago. Besides some movies and old TV shows I've watched, I've also found one good series that I've started watching. It's not a replacement for kayaking, hiking or biking, but those are not options right now. I'll settle for what I have.
Thankfully I have a great bunch of co-workers who are being very understanding. I hate to leave them short-staffed, so hopefully he'll let me go back to work in just a few weeks with a wheelchair. I'd actually rather be there than stuck in my house unable to drive or go anywhere.
Enough whining for now. I hope you're all having a great weekend. If you get outside, enjoy some sunshine for me.
