Good morning/afternoon everyone. I have not done a real good job of keeping up on my blog posts during this recovery time. My initial plan was to document daily how I was doing, however, the reality of my situation put me on a different direction.So today I give you an update. I hope that there are still those of you around that are interested in my ramblings lol.
As I said the other day, this procedure that I had done is turning out to be just as much a emotional one as a physical one. Maybe some of it is the drugs they put you on, maybe some of it is how dependent you become on others, I’m really not sure, however what I can say is that in many respects I feel as if I have lost many of these challenges….
My filter has been completely gone most days which makes my family life not pleasant. I mean as charming as I am, people can only handle so much of me unfiltered. To their credit, they have endured it and haven’t told me where I could go; even though they would be perfectly within their rights to do so. I do feel as if i am starting to turn the corner a bit however and hopefully for all involved those unfiltered days become less and less as time goes on.
For some good news, I am walking around pretty well with this cane and have even started venturing out a few steps without it at all. Balance still isn’t real good so I make sure that can is within easy distance of me at all times. The other good news is that last night I slept most of the night in my bed. It still wasn’t real comfortable but at least I didn’t spend all night in the recliner. During the recovery process sleep is so vital for both your physical and your mental state and so I am very grateful that it seems the worst is behind me in that regard.
Well, that is my update for today. It has now been 4 weeks of my 12 weeks journey to a full recovery which means I am almost half way there! God is good, all the time. Thank you my friends, I will post again tomorrow.
