Recovery and Beyond

I thought I would post a little bit about my recovery post surgery, since it's been just over a month since they put the operated on my foot. I seem to be healing well, and everything is lining up the way it should. I will have my stitches out on the 19th. I am using a rollator at home and a wheelchair everywhere else. I spend all day in bed, unless I am taking a shower or going to the restroom. Occasionally I might venture as far as the kitchen to make a cup of coffee. I spend a lot of time spinning and knitting and working on adult coloring books. I have gone through times when I had lots and lots of pain, and times when I had none at all. Right now I have occasional discomfort. If I am sitting up right too long, my foot starts to swell uncomfortably. Technically I am still supposed to be completely non-weight bearing right now, but I bend that rule every once in a while out of necessity or stubbornness. I am looking forward to having both feet back fully functional. I've been concerned that I won't be up and ready for my event in September, The GA Fiber Festival. I'll know more closer to time though. I just have to have patience and not try to rush things.

Today is the first day of school for R and B. We'll be doing Kindergarten and 3rd grade this year in our homeschool. I am pretty sure I am more excited than they are. They've had a relaxing month and half summer break and now it's time to get back into our old routine. Their co-op classes will be starting this week too, so it will all be very tidy. Maybe, lol! I am teaching an art history class for the co-op and I am really looking forward to it. I'll get out of the house once a week and see people and have some interaction.

Sunday we are planning to have R's birthday party. Hard to believe he's turning 8! He's such a big kid now. My little buddy is not so little any more.
