First Steps Part 1

Thank you for your kind comments! My main leg reconstruction surgery seemed to go well. Still waiting on pathology to make sure there isn’t infection hiding somewhere inside. I’ve actually been up ‘walking’ several times albeit with a straight leg, but its still WALKING. Right now, my main complaints/problems are lots of pain, nausea, and itching (under the full leg cast that I’d be stuck in for at least another 2-3 weeks.

Once the surgeon is confident that all the repair work has healed enough, I’ll lose the cast and start working on bending my leg. I’m not at all sure how much long I’ll be here. It all depends on whether I can go back to the acute rehab unit (like I did last time). I’m praying that somehow I’ll be able to go back there as I felt the physical and occupational therapists were extremely helpful. Meanwhile, I’m just trying to work as hard as I can during physical therapy (PT) and rest as much as I can in between.  And I’m so glad that not only does the room I’m in have a new TV (last time the TV was older than me!), but there are actually cable channels!! Especially since the hospital blocks all video on the internet, having access to more channels is really a HUGE plus!! Yesterday, I watched a Law & Order marathon and then watched Bolt, Finding Nemo, and Home Alone 2 on ABC Family. And my dad and I saw a preview of a new ABC series, Once Upon a Time, which looks very promising! Can’t wait til that premiers in a few weeks! It reminds me a little bit of the miniseries The 10th Kingdom which if you haven’t seen it, you definitely should!! A close family friend (and you’ll know who you are ;-) ) lent us the VHS tapes of it several years ago and then just game them to us when she bought the DVDs for her family! Last time I checked it wasn’t on instant play Netflix, but is available on by mail on Netflix (soon to be Qwickster). What do you think of the splitting of services by Netflix? Anyways, I really do love reading all your supportive comments!


And my first giveaway is still going on! (I’ll likely be extending it)
