We Got That Over With

We got that taken care of. The lame leg has been fixed. It wasn’t exactly a walk in the park. I did not limp into the operating room and lime back home the same day. I spent a couple days in the hospital. It seems that sleep apnea and pain narcotics do not mix too well. At least in my case they don’t. It’s okay and everything is back on track.
Hospital, you’re going to get picked on a little here. I do not exaggerate or tell falsehoods. I think it was the first evening and I was served the evening meal. It was a salad with dressing on the side. I thought the dressing was something different a little different looking, but it was a little dark in the room and I was a under the influence of drugs so I dump a little on the salad and I thought, “ Lord, have mercy, this taste a lot like gravy.” I think they may have been a little rushed in the kitchen that night and put the gravy on the wrong tray. Anyway, I had a lot of fun explaining to everybody within hearing distance of how good the gravy salad was. Outside of that the food was fine and I had a wonderful room mate. Nurses are overworked and how they can keep on their smiley faces through it all is beyond me.
I am home now and everything will soon be back to normal. I will keep in touch.

Glad you are back home, safe and sound. Well, at least safe :) Sorry about the salad, that sounds awful! Love gravy, but not on a salad. Hang in there and do everything the doctor's tell you to do...

Right back at you, Lorrene. I ride a motorcycle as my mental health therapy. Some people garden, some people knit. I ride. It became much more important after I lost the leg. It is hard to explain. Hopefully the worst is over for you now. Soon you can go from one hour at a time to one day at a time. It is just a wake up call to get out and live life to the fullest. As you know I have been there, as has my compadre, S2

I am so thankful the surgery went well, even if the sleep apnea and pain meds gave you a bit of trouble. I know you're just thankful it's done and you're able to be back at home! Take care of yourself. I am praying for a speedy recovery and painfree healing.

Many hugs...........
