Upset that this will be what it looks like now forever, but what is, is, right? The pain was pretty unimaginable right at first, but it does get better, daily. if I sit with the leg up and still, it is ok, but dangle it down like to hop to bathroom with crutches and boy howdy, it just screams...
I am slow, I have to think things through on how to do something, can't just go barreling into something without knowing how to do something, That is the way it was with the shower
Yesterday morning we had excitement, I fainted on the way back to bed from bathroom, I even sat there for awhile too, on toilet after done as was feeling sort of funny, by the time I got Brian's name out, I was down, now my butt hurts too :).. Have never done that before, it was pretty weird, clammy/sweaty, black swirlies and down I went. Did not hit my head tho or foot, thank heavens. Brian insisted I call the Doc and they called back today, good thing I was not still on the floor huh??? Said I just had surgery, duh, needed to move slow and stay hydrated. Really? they were most helpful. the hospital did call me yesterday tho, to ask how I was and do a check-up, that was nice.... But the delay with surgery and waiting for a call back after falling down, am less than thrilled with dealing with this office.... Everything seems to be going according to plan tho, no swelling, that I can see, keeping it dry and have enough meds to last. Brian is attentive to my every call, was right there when I fell and was duly freaked by the whole thing
Luci has been my constant companion, was very worried after I fell too, cried and carried on, did not think she would ever calm down. But she has taken every opportunity to 'potty' in the house if Brian is not right there.
Brian has also had to shovel snow, by himself!!!! Takes 2 hours to do the driveway and sidewalk after a dump! Last time was only 1 1/2 hours. Have been thankful he has been off work due to weather, to be here, don't know what I would have done, well would have just languished here in my bed. Probably starve to death!! He leaves me a big jug of water, so I can fill my glass when I need to, so I don't have to call for that... Just call when Luci jumps down, or need some food thrown at me :)
This too will pass
Take Care and God Bless All.. Stay warm and safe!!!
