falling for the cat
Sunday, January 26, 2014
I have not been on Spark very much at all. In the hospital, all I had was my Kindle Fire which was giving me trouble, besides which I didn't much feel like socializing - online or off.
My shoulder replacement went well, but still hurts like crazy....It is a 12 week recovery....and then I will have to think about getting the other one done. The doctor said, after my surgery, that there was absolutely no cartilage left...just bone grinding on bone. I pretty much could have predicted that judging from what I was feeling.
This morning I fell over the cat....thank God I didn't land on the floor...just twisted around, a glorious stumble....That hurt my shoulder a lot, but still less than it would have had I landed on the floor. However, I am worried about my cat. She was hiding in the basement which means she is hurt. She came up at the offering of some treats but only ate a couple of them....and then she went back into hiding. She is walking ok...I think my foot caught her in the stomach. I'm praying she is okay. My husband heard me call out when I tripped so he came out and yelled at me for being"up" in the middle of the night. It was 5:30 which is late for me to get up.....I know if anything happens to that cat, he will have my head.
my weight has been hovering in the 2008-2007 range. I've been on steroids for two weeks so that is actually not too bad.
The hospital sent me home with a "hemi" walker. It's built like miniature folding chair -it opens and closes like one. I haven't really used it in the house here...but maybe I should. If I had used it this morning, I would not have fallen. My husband mocks me when I use any walking aid in the house. I mean I CAN walk without them...so he thinks I SHOULD walk without them. I don't have too much patience with them. It also means I will have no way of carrying anything....unless it's some thing ultralight that my surgery arm can support.
well it's time for me to have my morning Quiet Time...I think today I may attempt a shower.The doctor said I could...I just haven't felt up to it so far. I will do it, either today or tomorrow.
