Yesterday was my last day of therapy and busy one at that. Much of it was in the afternoon. As it was in the beginning, more observations and now tests on what I can do and how much I have accomplished.
Early Friday morning I woke up with both hands itching, with no idea why. I have been trying to stop with no luck. After trying creams, lotions, heat, ice, I’m taking Benadryl.
I began this early Saturday, but Life happens!!!!!!!
Since then, I/We have been very busy. I was discharged in the morning,
This is what you get when you get when discharged.
made a stop Costco and headed home. Sandi got me all situated and helped put the groceries away. She headed home to get things done before she had to meet friends that evening. On the way, she brought Angel home.
You all know how happy she was.
Sunday, I got a call from Sandi letting me know that Apollo with Health South would be over to register me for home healthcare. That took about an hour, just in time to get to church. We visited Past was or Shane’s church. He is the one that Sandi brought to visit me after my surgery.
Faith Pointe Church of Christ was celebrating their 2nd year Anniversary and Pastor. Shane invited us to share in the luncheon they were having. It was wonderful to be blessed with great food and conversation.
From there we went to Home Depot to get some wood to put under the MH jacks, Maybe now I can get “My Spot II” leveled properly. Then we went to pick up Charlie from his dad’s, dropped off my prescriptions at Walgreens, went to On the Border to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, returned to Walgreens to pick up the scripts, went to Walmart to finish shopping and then home. I got help putting everything away said goodbye. The rest of the evening I watched one of the two channels that I get and was in bed by 9:00 pm. I figured out how to put on a Lidocaine Patch (for pain) on my left arm by myself and went to bed.
Today, I had another home healthcare visitor, this time it was for evaluation. I did a little bit of straightening up and put away the laundry that Sandi did for me. Thank you Sandi! I did my exercises and will do them again before bed.
Tomorrow morning I have my post-op appointment with Dr. Milne. He will probably take out the staples then. My 1st actual home healthcare therapy visit will be tomorrow too.
Ii is hard to believe that it has taken me all day to finish this post. It will be nice to use both hands when this is all over and done.
I hope you all have a great week.
Thanks for visiting
Susan and Angel
