I am getting stronger little by little, and am able to walk about 2-3 blocks at a time. I'll either go for a little walk outside or I'll walk up to my public library which is 1 1/2 blocks and sit and rest and then get up and do "laps" around the building.
I'll pick up a kids book or two during my meandering and then sit and rest and read them. Can't quite handle an "adult" book yet as I'm still suffering from "drug induced ADD" - no great attention span! Then, I walk home and either lay on the couch and snooze or crawl into bed and take a nap. I'm heading more towards the "healing tired" stage vs. the "drug induced tired" stage, which is nice because I can now type an e-mail or have a conversation with someone without falling asleep in the middle of it!
I've also got enough oomph that I've been able to start a little stitchery project. It isn't much, but at least I feel like I've accomplished something during the day - even if it's just a few stitches.
Here is a sneak peak:
And that, as exciting as it may sound, pretty much covers my day.
Overall, I feel pretty good. My foot is still pretty numb/fuzzy, it might yet turn around, or I may have to get used to it being a permanent thing. My next Dr.'s appointment isn't until the 26th and then I get these blasted stitches out!! Trust me it's time for them to GO, GO, GO!
For you sewers out there - mom says it looks like I was "blanket stitched" together. I'm going to ask the Dr. what his medical term for the stitch is - wouldn't it be funny if it really turned out to be a blanket stitch!
I also wanted to thank you for all of your prayers, good thoughts, and wishes for a speedy recovery! Whenever I need a pick me up, I read your comments and the spirit is instantly lifted - THANK YOU - Elizabeth
