Happy Easter everyone - I hope ya'll have had a wonderful day!
Weather has been gorgeous. I'm going to hate it when it heats up & I'll have to close the RV windows up to use the air conditioner for another season. It's been nice to sit on my sofa, by my big window, window open, breezes flowing through all day.
I did have my surgery on Wednesday.
The recovery in the recovery room was awful. My foot kept going into spasms, the really nice nurse kept hitting my IV with more morphine. It was so painful that tears came to my eyes. The nurse was great! In fact, the entire staff there were great. Nice people, everyone in smiles, everyone willing to answer questions & really listen to you. They ask a whole slew of questions before surgery. One of the questions was "Do you have dentures"? My answer, YES!! Wait, what in the hell am I saying??!!! I don't have dentures! The girl laughed & said people do that all the time.
The ride home was a bit rough. As you can imagine, I had hallucinations the whole way home. I kept drifting in & out of consciousness, at one point, I could have sworn there were piles & piles of shoes at my feet on the floorboard of the car?? Each time I slipped away, I had hallucinations of piles of stuff! Piles of shoes, piles of clothes, piles of this & that each time. It was very weird.
And my driver decided to run errands along the route back to my RV. I just wanted to get home....she should have done those errands on the way to pick me up. I was miserable. Foot could not be propped in her car, it was swelling & throbbing & I had to sit there at each place she stopped & endure it all. Was soooo glad to finally make it back to my RV & she ran my dogs for me when we got back. Was grateful for that.
I still say RV's are the BEST recovery rooms!!! My friend was surprised & said my RV makes a good walker for me & it does. I grab this drawer, this door handle, the stove, etc to move around with. Could not put any weight on my foot the first couple of days & have to use a walker outside. I use a cane inside now. As long as I have the boot on, I can now walk around with the assistance of those devices.
I want some easter candy or some chocolate, or some ice cream....boohoo. Have nothing like that in here outside a jar of Nutella & nothing to dip into it. Bummer. I need a trip to the store. Have been mostly eating cereal as I've not been able to eat much. I guess my craving for sweets means my appetite is coming back?
Anyhow, again, I hope all is well with everyone & that ya'll have had a wonderful day!
