Who knew that one could sleep so much?
The day started off great by having a two hour nap. Good grief - why two hours? I don't know, but I lay on the couch with my ice pack and a flannel quilt and poof - I was gone. Got up - did a bit of work, went to the quilt store and the grocery store with my chauffeur, back home and had another nap. One thing about work - I miss going to visit the quilt stores. There is no time and well quite frankly - no need to purchase more fabric!!!
I did manage to get a small quilt quilted before it was time for another nap.
|Customer quilt - DONE|
I have to say that just doing this small quilt, I could already feel a big difference in my leg. Normally my right leg is tired when working on the long arm and I have to stretch it out. Not one stretch was required!!!! And the surgeon said I would have to wait three months to feel the full benefit of what he did. Oh boy - I can't wait for those three months to be up so I can really feel awesome!!!!
Then back to the couch for another long nap. This time, I think I got up for dinner and then back to the couchh to watch a movie and then to bed. I did manage to sneak in 6,000 steps on the FitBit. Not sure how - oh yes - I did take the dogs for a walk in the morning and before I went to bed to stretch out the knee. If I don't walk, it seizes up and that is the last thing that needs to happen. I MUST use the knee - those are the surgeon's orders.
So for all of you who think that I wasn't going to take good care of myself, I slept most of the day away, was warm and snuggly. The only thing - because of the timing of our outing, I didn't get a Tim's tea. Drat!!! I need to have a chat with the chauffeur!
I had a pretty good night - I'm not waking up, although my knee is still a bit stiff, but I wouldn't be surprised if most of that is due to the bandaging which comes off today at Noon. See - I was told 48 hours and that will be 48 hours. Just in case you think I'm pushing the healing process - I'm following orders.
The big question will be - can I drive the car tomorrow??? I'll have a better idea of that once the bandages come off today. And then see how the knee bends. It isn't painful, just stiff and I want to make sure that I have good movement before getting behind the wheel of the car. See - I really am a sensible person! And the surgeon said I could drive when I'm up to it and NOT on pain meds which I didn't take any - didn't need to.
Made the backing and loaded it this morning for the next quilt that I hope to have done today. I have a lot of other stuff that needs to be done - none of it can be put off so it's going to be a busy busy week and I need to be well rested to make everything happen. No danger there - I feel another nap coming on.
On that note - Have a great day!
