Surgery Update

 I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving and was able to somehow connect with their loved ones. CO-VID has made it difficult to be with family, friends, and loved ones; however, I hope that with the creativity that I often see here, you were all able to create a way to be together.

I spend the day with my oldest daughter and her fiancé and his mom, dad, and grandma. I was able to talk to the rest of my family,  but most of them will be here Sunday to have dinner. I sure miss being home, but I am well taken care of here and I enjoy time with my daughter. Of course, being homesick has been an issue and I miss my granddoll so very, very much. She is literally my heart and soul!! 

For those that aren't aware, I had foot surgery a couple of weeks ago and I am staying with my daughter for a couple of weeks to recover, Recovery will be a few months, but I hope to go home on Sunday after we celebrate Thanksgiving. She has limited internet and limited phone service and it makes updating here and talking with my husband difficult, but I have managed. I am healing and the doctor said at my first post op appointment that things looked good. There was some swelling that he was a bit concerned about, but stated that it was normal. I see him again this Friday to have the bandages replaced and then in two more weeks, he hopes to remove stitches and the pins that are holding my toes in place. Then I will go into a boot, but still have limited mobility for a couple of months.

I miss my days of being busy! I miss my granddoll and the I am missing newborn time with the new baby. I miss my husband and I just miss home. Not that I am not in a nice place with plenty of time with my oldest but just isn't the same as home!

Christmas decor should be going up and I should be busy baking cookies, playing games with the granddoll and wrapping gifts, but those things will be very limited this year. I needed the surgery, but I am hating the recovery. Enough of my complaining though- there is much to be thankful for and I need to praise God that surgery went well and it seems as though recovery will as well.

Every stay safe and wear your masks! Prayers for all that are suffering from this horrible virus that has literally locked our country down and may continue to for awhile. Keep those around you safe and let's all remember that no matter what race we are, we are the United States of America. Politicians may try to divide us, groups that claim to care about race relations may try to divide us, but kindness starts with YOU.

Surgery Tomorrow

Hello! I have been MIA again for quite awhile due to many things happening. I wanted to let everyone know that I will be having a basic reconstruction of my foot tomorrow and will be non mobile for several weeks and truly not back on my feet for several months. 

It will be a welcomed surgery, but I am very nervous as the hospital just called and due to the increase in Covid cases here, there are no visitors allowed in with me. I had been told that my husband could be with me the entire time except in surgery. Now, no one. I have to be at the hospital for an hour and a half before surgery and then I will be in surgery for about 2 hours and then recovery for about an hour. Makes me extremely scared that I will be alone before surgery. 

I will be posting some updates following surgery, but it may be a couple of weeks as I am going to my daughter's house to recuperate. I am going to stay with her for 2 weeks and then I will return home. I don't like that arrangement really, but feel that it may be the best solution as I can' t be here alone while my husband works. 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving season and I will talk to you all soon!

Happy Homemaker Monday _ Feb. 6, 2023
