Good morning friends. It is snowing like mad in my world today. I am thankful to walk from window to door and watch it come down and know I'm snugged up tight in my nest with nowhere to go!
So here we are five days in. My knee is quite a crazy patchwork of colors. It is swollen and it hurts like HELL.
This morning I woke up flat on my back with a cat on my chest stroking my cheek. And NO PAIN. I just didn't want to move at all. But you know how it is, your bladder doesn't wait and thirst or hungry eventually get the best of you too.
Appetite has been an issue for me. It's not like I don't have 40 pounds to lose anyway!
Once I recovered from that and had a sit down, it was time to do a little walk about. There is a bathroom and bedroom on my main floor, so I can walk through, then back into the livingroom and kitchen. 'Round and 'round I went until exhaustion threatened. It was noon so I took one of the heavy pain meds and went down for a snooze.
The phone has been ringing all afternoon. I am truly thankful that folks are concerned for my welfare, I don't want to talk to anybody else today. Going to take some Tylenol and have a rest before dinner.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that healing is NOT exhausting!
Tomorrow is a new day. And each new day I will have healed a little more.
