Year and a bit Later

I dunno if we should post this or not? I’ll schedule it, and see if anyone stops it.

It’s been a year and a bit. Almost 14 months i guess. Hard to say if things are any better or whatever. They say it can be a 5 to 10 year process with therapy and stuff, to process and recover and learn to live with all this stuff.

Healing

So it’s been 6 full days now since the second operation. A week since the original procedure.

I’m certainly on the mend. I can tell, there is less pain, moving around is easier. On the other hand, I’m not feeling as good as I had hoped. Maybe I was overly optomistic, and maybe having two operations in two days is a bit of an extra strain on the system.

I went to work yesterday for a few hours; that and a visit to the drug store afterwards completely wore me out. By the time I got home I was exhausted, and in a good deal of discomfort.

On the other hand, despite how tired I was, I had insomnia and lay awake staring at the ceiling for half the night. So from that point of view, I’m a lot closer to being back to normal than I feel.

I’m expecting to spend the rest of the weekend slumping around doing nothing, much as I’ve done this past week, and with luck I’ll be just about finished the mending process by Monday.

There should be more to report, but I can’t remember what it may have been. And sitting at a desk & typing has tired me out again.
