I was surprised at how fast Friday's foot surgery went. We had to be at the hospital by 6am and we were home by 11:15am. The surgeon ended up doing some additional work that I didn't plan on, but it explains why my foot hurt so bad. Chris said the before and after x-rays are quite impressive looking.
I spent yesterday afternoon sleeping off the drugs and by the evening, I was ready to eat some dinner and watch movies with the girls. I even managed to sneak in a few blogs last night. I'm sure I'll be spending this afternoon doing more blog hopping.
I had been told that day 2 would be the hardest day and I'm not going to lie. My foot hurts something "wicked awful". I can feel my heartbeat in my foot.
Getting used to the crutches has been interesting. I'm definitely going to be building up some arm and shoulder muscles.
The cats have taken turns sleeping on my lap.
Maybe they are just taking advantage of the fact that I'm sitting still for a change and I have a cozy blanket on my lap.
The girls and Chris have been very good at taking care of me. Just look at the basket filled with fun reading material that was waiting for me when I came home!
I also have to say thank you to Donna (My Shabby Chateau) who sent me a lovely package filled with crafting supplies and the most darling card. She also made me a lovely plaque (which I forgot to take a picture of). I'm so spoiled.
Even my neighbor came over last night with a fun gift basket too.
I'll be back tomorrow with some very exciting news (not foot related). Josie had a major milestone happen within the last 24 hours!!
