Look at these beautiful flowers my inlaws sent me. It really was a lovely surprise. Thank you Bob, Susie, & Mindy!
Today is day 3 of recovery and I'm feeling pretty good. I even sent my caretaker (mom) home a day early. My first full day home (Saturday) was rough and I was still in quite a bit of pain, but I took a huge jump from Saturday to Sunday, and I felt a lot better yesterday. And today I feel about the same as yesterday, but that's good. I have enough discomfort to keep me from doing too much, walking too quickly up & down the stairs, etc., but I only have to take a couple advil every 5 or so hours now - no more narcotics.
So the title of this blog is in reference to the flowers (above) and the weather here this (extended) weekend. We actually had to turn our air conditioning on Saturday. It's been in the 80's since Friday. It's 10:30 am now and it's already sunny and 80 degrees, with a high of 87 today. Yikes. I think the weather may take a change tomorrow, so maybe I will go back to work... I haven't decided yet. I think I'd prefer to wait until Wednesday because that's the day that Bobby also works at the church, so he can drive me, escort me up & down the stairs there, go to post office, keep my beverages refreshed at my desk, answer the phone for me... you know, all the essentials. The title "pretty" does not refer to any part of me, you can count on that. I did get a shower finally yesterday - it was surely the highlight of the day. But as for showering/shampooing today, I have to wait until Bobby gets home to do that because we have a claw foot tub, and to step in and out is tricky and I don't want to fall on the floor with only a couple of cats there. So for now, I'm glad we live out in the middle of nowhere so no one can see me.
