Physical Therapy Today

and I'm ready!
We had a fun day with the boys yesterday, Tom mostly corralled their energy in the family room with the Smurfs (why do kids like them so much?) while I visited with Crystal. Lunch was lovely with 2 more meals frozen for later. Crystal cut Tom's hair and trimmed mine!
They left about 3 pm and I went directly to the bed - my body was saying "enough"! I rested about an hours.
I'm starting to be concerned about all the medication being poured into my body (which is a sure sign that I am feeling better). Adding the anti-inflammatory has reduced the pain by over 50%. And while the narcotic does make me sleepy, I think it is also causing queasiness in my stomach. I didn't eat anything more after lunch yesterday, yet I felt like I had just completed a 6 course meal. Since the pain is better, I'm going to experiment with taking less of the narcotic - see if I can manage the pain on mostly the Tylenol.
I was up and down all night last night which certainly can't be conducive to healing. It was so bad that Daisy left me to find a peaceful place to sleep!
Physical Therapy today and I'm looking forward to it. I feel like I've gained a fair amount of strength back and I'd really like confirmation. Another day of healing brings me one more day closer to walking. We're looking at a beautiful weekend (if we can actually believe the weather guys). Wishing you all a wonderful weekend too!
