Saturday was a busy day, the Frederick South Games Group met at Glade Valley rehab at 1pm and we played games till after 8pm. This after I had full Occupational and Physical Therapy in the morning. I did manage to stay in the wheelchair for the afternoon and even won a game, probably due to the pain meds letting me play a more surprising game. It was great to see and visit with Eric and Laura, Nancy and Alison, Debbie, and Jack. What was even nicer was that I didn't need piles of painkillers for the night. I am taking it a bit easy this day to let the swelling continue to reduce. Kevin has been by and dropped off some books to read,some coffee to sip, and some visiting/chatting on a wide range of topics. Big news for Sunday - I managed to give myself a pretty full wash-up (still can't reach the left foot) and dress myself, so patted myself on the back. In not-quite leaps and bounds I am recovering and am looking forward to becoming more mobile. I go for the follow-up appointment on the 14th to discover how satisfied the surgeon is with my healing.
Further notes, My fantastic brother Keith was by with a new bedside hospital type table with the sliding tops, drawer space, and a bolted on second monitor which I am using right now with the laptop. I confess it may look a bit more like an office in here than a rehab room.
I am thankful for the creativity and forethought so many have shown as I travel this path. Long before I have a thought of a need someone has determined I will have the need, and started work on a solution. This blog is a wonderful example of that very precept.
