second day home,first time I attempted to do my hair, still had tape residue on my face and a lovely sharpie line on my good arm that read "other arm please" which my friend Deb finally was able to scrub off for me lol
I've had very little pain with this surgery and have been managing quite well from the outset I was getting up and walking nearly every day a little bit. My good friend Mel and her husband were mixing grain and feed rations for me, and feeding Johnny and the other horses.
And after a few days began to take me down with them so I could get my "equine therapy" by the second week I was able to take the grain pails myself and do that little bit of feeding each day.
Martin has been doing the greater amount of the chores as I will no longer be at able to fork hay even once I am completely recovered I will have a 5 pound weight limit on this arm. My days of pitching hay and pitching pitchforks have ended. I'm not a moment too soon.
I can however saddle my horse one-handed so I'm not out for the count yet. That too may have to wait for sometime.
I prepared a bunch of meals before I had my surgery and Martin has been a great cook while I was recovering. He has learned quite a few new skills. Also of course my sister made me some treats and had us over for dinner.
I got the cast off, on November 16, and I'm now learning to straighten my arm slowly and await starting physio next Tuesday. I haven't been on the blogs much because I can't type yet. I am currently doing this post through voice to text on my cell phone, then will email it to myself, and post that way. It is how I have been communicating with everyone on Facebook for the most part though I can type on my cell phone somewhat more easily than I can on the keyboard.
my two beautiful nieces, and as you can see my soon to be great niece attended as well ! in the form of Tara's baby bump!
Anyhow that's all for now, I am peeking at your blogs and reading but it is quite difficult for me to comment at the moment. But have no fear I will be back chatting away with you soon.
Meanwhile stay safe my friends, and yes, I am behaving...mostly
