Three Weeks After Surgery

I'm doing great! I saw my surgeon yesterday. My bandages are off and the wounds are healing. I still have to behave myself and not do bending and twisting. Frank still has KP duty :-) I will start helping him as I can. I took my shower yesterday without the use of the shower stool. Frank says it is staying in there with me a while longer... just in case. I am doing well with my walking. I do one long walk a day and two or three small walks around the yard. The long walk is down the street and is over a half mile, but less than a mile.. one day I need to measure it. More good news... my stomach is doing a little bit better.

The weekend was rainy, but nice. The rain was much needed. It also helped me catch up on my sleep. Today I think the high temperature was 53°. The sun is shining and there is still a breeze, but not as much as yesterday.

Our daughter called today and still no job. She has an interview tomorrow. Her boyfriend is still without a job. Please pray with me that they and others soon find a job.

I tried to start my embroidery project again, but I can't seem to focus on it yet. I'll try again tomorrow.

Last night we watch Celtic Women on PBS. I love listening to them.

I need to catch up on my reading of blogs and looking at pictures. I'll do that tomorrow.

  1. Hi, Zaroga! I haven't had any surgery and yet you are walking longer distances than I can! Way to go girl. I'll be praying for job for your young people. Afraid times are going to be difficult for lots of folks for a while. You're going to have fun catching up on the blogs. It's lots of fun to skip a few days and then read up on everyone. Hope you have a great week.

  2. So glad you're doing better! Keep it up! :)

    I'm a bit north of you and got some snow but it didn't even stick around for some cool photos! :P Darn nature for giving me some false hope!

    I hope your daughter and her boyfriend can find employment. Getting pretty rough out there, I'm a city employee and our departments have frozen all recruiting for now because the budget is in such poor shape. Going to be rough for a few months at least. Oof.

    I hope you continue to feel better! Take care!

  3. Zaroga,

    I'm so glad you're doing better!! I love how you break-up your little comments like that. It's better than the long paragraphs I tend to write. LOL I will pray for your daughter and boyfriend. It's scary out there...but they will find something soon.

  4. I'm glad you're doing better. We are having snow right now and it's supposed to accumulate to 3 inches. That's not too bad, at first it was predicted for 5 inches. I think I have too many projects going on at the same time right now. I couldn't focus on an ornament I wanted to make for tomorrow.
    Have a good evening.

  5. Sharon,
    You should take up walking. It is great for the body and soul. I got to visit a few blogs today. Everyone is so talented. Thank you for the prayers.

    Thanks. I'm trying very hard to get back to normal and to taking photos. Times are hard right now for so many. It breaks my heart.

    Thanks. I like to be different sometimes. I may explore the Wingding font for different symbols sometime :-)

    Thanks. I'm so glad we hardly ever have snow here. It is okay to see from a distance :-) I saw all those projects you have going. I hope you accomplish all you want to.

  6. Love the quote!!

    Sounds like you are doing great!! Good for you...Keep it up!! I am still resting..Got out this morning but need to sit this afternoon..

    Take care...

  7. So happy to hear that you are doing well. Keep up the good work!
    I missed seeing the Celtic Women! Drats! Maybe they will air it again soon. Love them too!
    Have a nice week!
