I am receiving in home nursing care and in home physical therapy. I have a nurse who comes 2 times a week, checks my incision, vitals, takes a blood sample and just visits to see how I am doing. I have a physical therapist that comes 3 times a week. The first week of August I will start going out to physical therapy, 2-3 times a week for 2-3 weeks. Next Thursday I have a checkup with the orthopedic surgeon and will have the staples removed.
I have to admit the pain has been pretty bad, but I am starting to feel better. I know it all takes time. It took awhile to get my appetite back, that has made a big difference.
Dan has been a great caregiver. He is busy around here taking care of me, the house, the dogs, the list goes on. He gave up his man cave ( aka Nautical Room) for me during this recuperation, so I could be downstairs and close to things. He moved Kelly's old bed in here. It's quite cozy. I think it will be a little while yet before I go upstairs and sleep in our room. Kelly has helped out with as well when she is home.
I have had many friends and family stop by, pray for me, bring food. I have received lots of flowers, cards and gifts. I am blessed to have so many people care about me and care about Dan as well.
I am looking forward to doing normal daily activities again and sleeping well at night.
Take care everyone.
