I cannot quite believe it’s already day 14 since my foot surgery. It has absolutely flown by. I’ve been looked after like a Queen by my fantastic other half and have managed to keep myself busy.
Apart from my writing, I’ve read a couple of excellent books (James Patterson and Tess Gerritsan) and I am now reading Torey Hayden’s latest novel.
I’ve knitted Bess a winter coat and knitted a cushion for my bed. With what’s left of my massive 500g ball I am going to knit a couple of ‘special’ scarves trimmed in jewels as Christmas presents.
In the two weeks I can honestly say that there has only been a couple of ‘dull’ days, with the rest being sunny which makes sitting in the conservatory even nicer.
Yesterday I managed the stairs with one crutch instead of going up and down on my bum, and I am managing to walk around mostly using one crutch.
Tomorrow I have my stitches out and really hope I can be given the OK to use my stick or just one crutch and to be able to go out. I’ve not been out for the fortnight as you need to keep the wound so dry and clean but can’t wait to get some fresh air tomorrow.
The pain is minimal with my pain killers down by half. My back was not at all happy at the start of the recovery but with the correct lumber support cushions and a few days on anti-inflammatory’s, even that has settled down nicely.
I’m going to have a play at my card making this afternoon which is another hobby of mine and will post some pictures of them when they are finished.
I am pleased as punch about how things are progressing at the moment and think I can look forward to being able to enjoy some Christmas shopping in the shops rather than online.
Thanks again blog friends for all your lovely thoughts and comments over the last few months.
