Marvelous Innocence...

Well, it's surgery tomorrow so wish me luck! Dr. says it will be 6 weeks of non weight bearing recovery. Then 2 weeks of relearning to walk after that. YIKES..how do I do that? He wrote me a prescription for a walker and a wheelchair and pain meds and all that. But how do I ask people for all the help I am going to need? I am used to being the caregiver for everyone. I am not a good patient! I have to stay up late making room in my studio for that wheel chair with that elevated leg thing. I hope that thing will fit in there or its going to be 6-8 weeks of knitting for me! I mean I like knitting but usually only in the winter! I guess I am just in shock that I didn't have more notice than this. Also, the thing I didn't tell anyone is I also have frozen shoulder and they found a cyst in there so after this I have to deal with that. The Dr. was going to try to deal with that at the same time while they had me out but decided I am going to need my shoulder for the walker so changed his mind, so I just have a long road ahead of me. Thank God for ART!
fondly, Nancy

Hi Nancy,
I found your blog through etsy. I'm Moontidearts.
I'm wishing you lots of luck on your surgery. It's good you didn't have to anticipate it for very long. That's always hard for me, worse than the surgery itself and the recovery. I've had a few knee operations and most recently a hip replacement a year ago. In June it will be my right hand. I figure I'll be in a cast 2-3 months. I'm already planning how I'll get someone to atach a paintbrush to my cast. It's good you're getting things all set up before you go.
best of luck,
-Grace Lee

Nancy,

I just saw this post.
I wish you a very smooth recovery.

Best wishes.

AND now with all of your free time, let's schedule some sort of 1 on 1 swap!
That should occupy some fun time!
