1 Week Post Op

Izzy, happy as can be!

Izzy, happy as can be!

I can hardly believe it’s been a whole week post surgery.  Well. technically I have a few hours to go but still.  Everything seems to be going well so far. I am amazed at how well I feel!  Definitely not 100% but I can get around pretty well with minimal pain.  When I first got home I was really concerned with the nerve pain I was having in my right leg but with some nerve medication it’s manageable now. I’m able to get around pretty well, no walker.  I have my trusted companion, Cletus, to help me grab things without bending.  That’s the biggest struggle I face when I’m home alone, needing to get things that are out of reach and remembering not to bend.

I still don’t have much of an appetite but I’m pretty stoked by tapioca pudding and jello. Trying to eat lots of fruit and veggies to keep me somewhat healthy.  Yes, I am using a commode but I tell ya, it’s been a HUGE help.  We’ve not yet named him.  I’m occupying my time with obviously blogging, reading, watching the news (because I’m a total nerd when it comes to news) and taking care of odds and ends that I’ve needed to for some time.  Finally got stuff listed to eBay so in a way I am working while being out of work.  The cats keep me company and entertained.  They’ve been destructive per usual so that keeps things entertaining.

A few great friends have stopped by with food and have stayed to chat a bit.  It’s a really great thing to have awesome people who care enough to take time out of their busy day to check in on me.  I am extremely grateful for these people.  Makes me realize that people do actually care and like me lol.

Well off to shower I think.  Today I can take the dressing off and shower with the stitches uncovered.  Woo! How exciting eh?  Maybe now I can get that iodine that has stained my skin for a week now, completely off.
