Update From My Love Seat: Sunday, Sept 8th







Well...I'm sure it's a zippity doo dah ding dong day outside in the rest of the world and for most folks...but things are moving slow from the love seat in the canyon...

I'm still 2 1/2 weeks...at best...from being able to put weight on this leg and then who knows from there.  Seems like I get one complication behind me and another one peeks around the corner....WHO EVER HEARD of complications...from a broken LEG? 

I'm so ashamed of the way I'm handling this situation....but now I'm not being cranky...or fussing at geezer...he's doing just great keeping everything up and seeing to me.  But I'm telling you the truth....this is the most exhausting thing I've ever been through in my LIFE....for 'me'...

Just the claustrophobia is soooooooooooo over whelming.  And when the sun starts going down...it just almost takes my breath away.  I'm very claustrophobic to begin with and then you add this cast that is tighter than who knows what...and the fact that I can't get up off of the love seat except to scoot on my walker seat to the bathroom...And most days it's so hot the geezer wants the air on...so the house is closed up to BOOT...And here I sit...
I can't stay focused to watch tv much...and that lap top is for the birds....and John Long...our computer expert TOLD me when I got it...that it was a better computer than this desk top....but I MUCH MUCH MUCH prefer a desk top....that laptop is so fast...even a healthy person couldn't keep up with it...I have to type with 1 finger on it...because keys type that I haven't even touched  :-/

I'm still having problems with the blurry vision and light headedness....but Patel says those things are common in people that are extra sensitive to anesthesia....and can take weeks to go away.  AND now I'm having problems with my blood pressure being too low.  Patel adjusted my meds on Thursday...but the BP is still staying down around 110/60 and that's just too low for me....I'm going to have to call him again tomorrow....He's already dropped one BP pill and I think we're going to have to drop at least one more...I was on 4 a day  :-0  Looks like instead of needing pills...I was just too hyper....go figure...But healthier days are ahead of us for SURE...if I can just get back on my feet.

Well this isn't much today....but I get so many emails asking how I'm doing.....I'm struggling  :-)  But I DO KNOW it could be soooooooooooooooo much worse....

And by the way....thanks SO SO much for all the emails and pm's....I try to answer all of them...but I know I've missed a few.  Your comments and praises just make my day...so thank you SO SO much...I'm so glad so many of you DO love this blog...because if you didn't...we wouldn't be where we are today with it.....

We'll have a regular blog tomorrow.....peace and love from the canyon....

Thanks so much for stopping by and I love you all gobs and gobs....


I'd sure love to hike this path today.....
