Hi everyone - well it’s like the heading says - I just can’t get my head back into anything.
There are lots of things I can be doing but the desire isn’t there. I am hoping it’s one of the side effects of surgery.
I did however finish and ship a penny rug and am working on the last one I have had here but my heart isn’t in it.
I thought I would be wanting to do my punch needle and rug hooking while recouping but it’s not there
So – the surgery was 5-1/2 hours and went well.
my stay in the hospital was 7 days, 5 of them were on the PT floor.
I progressed so well that they thought I didn’t need any more therapy and to be honest, the surgical area didn’t hurt as much as the first time and this one was extensive. I had more leg and hip pain than surgical pain.
Went for my post-op visit and they were so pleased with my progress and took x-rays to see how things were going. Wow – didn’t expect to see what I did. Lots of pins and screws!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. We had it here at our house that way when I got tired or hurt I’d be more comfortable than at someone else’s place….but that being said….I OVER DID IT! And I am paying the price with lots of hurts. Self inflicted owies are frustrating because you can’t blame it on someone else or something else…got myself to blame
We did take down our Fall decorations and got them put away for another year and this next week we will bring up the Christmas and take our time decorating.
Now I did learn a lesson from this past week and will NOT OVER DO it.
I also have come to terms with the idea of ‘minimal decorating’ this year.
Instead of 4 Christmas trees there will just be the main tree and then a bit of greenery and berries and that’s all.
Haven’t heard from the grand-children what they would like for gifts so that part hasn’t even started yet either. I can just see it all happening the week before Christmas!!!
Do you remember me writing about our friends, Bill and Linda Nottingham? Well 2 weeks ago Linda lost her courageous battle with cancer. The loss is felt so deeply, not only because we lost such a wonderful friend but we hurt for Billy – he will be lost without her for a long long time to come.
So – that is what has been happening in my world. Hopefully in a week or two I’ll have some Christmas pictures to share.
Blessings to all
