Here I am in my recliner, with my feet elevated, where I spend much of my time and where I sleep at night. I get up at least every two hours to walk for 15 minutes. Walking loops around the inside of my house is not much fun, but it does let me know how my hip is progressing.
Pain is under control without the use of the oxycodone I was prescribed. Sure, it hurts when I walk, but not bad. My hip is stiff and that's why I walk, to keep it loosened up. Some position changes are hard and I have to be careful.
The digestive system issues are clearing up faster with this surgery and I am very thankful for that. I can eat!
My world is small these days but that isn't much different than with the Covid restrictions. I can appreciate what I do have, like these beautiful flowers that were sent to me.
And the Zoom meetings we have twice a week with the Friday breakfast club.
Of course I watched TV most of the day on Wednesday as the president carried on his hissy fit denial of the election and then sent his minions to besiege the capitol and "go wild". What a shameful display of ignorance and disregard for the rule of law. They call themselves patriots? I think not.
A physical therapist will visit me again today, so I'd better get out of this chair and do another walk about. He will be checking up on me.
Today is Isaac's 18th birthday! We will have a Zoom birthday party this evening. I won't get any cake but I think we still have some ice cream in the freezer. Let's party!
