Slow Go…

Okay, still alive, though somedays just barely. Still feeling weak and tired but getting around some and hoping rehab will help me gain my strength back. Had post-op meeting with surgical group yesterday and all “seems” to be in order with regards to X-rays, blood work and wound. I’m also cleared to drive starting next week (look out Texas).

Have never ever experienced all the various feelings, mood swings, ups and downs, etc. but then too I have never had a surgical procedure this serious before. I started to write numerous times but body and mind are just not in sync (not that they ever were) so hang with me please.  Doc said it can take up to three months or more to get back to some semblance of normalcy.

Thank you to all who’ve written and sent cards….you da best.

    • JT the doc said I could have a glass or two but believe it or not I haven’t had that overriding desire/urge. Suspect the multitude of pills has something to do with it.
