Things we know:
I've been in this cast for six days out of the 14 I have to my next appointment. At that point the surgeon will cut it off, remove my stitches and give me a new one exactly like this one. I will weat that cast for four more weeks with no mobility. At that time I will get a walking cast.
The surgeon said the surgery went really well but we also know it's going to be weeks and weeks before we see any results of that. I will be in the walking cast up to another couple of months. After that, hopefully, I will be back in normal shoes.
Though we know it's not true it feels like I have gone back four months in my recovery. Not being able to get around the house is very difficult. It also feels like I will never sleep again. I have never been so tired. I am running on complete empty.
Today I get to take a shower! Mom and Dad have a main floor bathroom that I Can use to take a shower and get my hair washed. I feel very ready for that.
Being an invalid is hard work!
I love Toben. In the past there have been times when I have doubted Toben's love for me but never again. He has gone above and beyond in taking care of me. He makes me feel safe and protected.
I am worried about Toben. Her gives everything he has to take care of me and the girls and my not sleeping means no sleep for him. Please pray for extra rest for him.
While I wish I could say that lying ont he couch and watching Netflix for the rest of the day sounds like fun, I have to say that it is not. The shower is calling.
