Two months out of surgery and I’m reflecting on my achievements during recuperation.
First of all, I’ve contributed to the economy by providing employment for an army of health care professionals.
Since I was semi -house bound for three weeks, and didn’t do the grocery shopping, I managed to clean out the refrigerator. Marty remarked that he could actually see the back wall of the fridge.
With the help and encouragement of my loving family, I am walking straighter than I did before surgery, and with little pain. I have to confess that I was beginning to enjoy being pampered and catered to. However, too much of a good thing is too much. Now I‘m happy to drive and do my own shopping and some cooking.
I’ve resumed participation in the water exercise program at the Y. It’s much better than “4 in 1 Motor Oil” for lubricating joints and strengthening muscles.
About two weeks ago I even traveled to New Jersey, as a passenger, for a holiday dinner with my great- grandchildren.
I can’t ask for much better than that, can I? As my father would say, “Every day is a bonus.”
