It’s over. Surgery is done. Tuesday was a haze. Drugs work well on me & I don’t really have a memory of real pain. I know there was some because Steve told me I was NOT a happy camper coming out of La La Land.
But we made it home and I haven’t budged since then.
The most amazing thing(why I am amazed I don’t know) is that I don’t have much pain. Sure my arms hurt from the crutches & my good leg is sore from being the weight bearing leg. I’ve had so many people praying for me and my recovery that I know God is answering our prayers!
But considering the doctor tacked down a piece of torn cartilage & shaved off some bone that was causing the tear I should have some pain. But I just don’t. As my “nurses”—Steve & Michael have helped me they were really scared of hurting my leg. It just hasn’t been a problem.
I wasn’t sure about laying down flat so I slept in the recliner for the first two nights. But last night I got to hop down the hallway to my bedroom and lay down on my bed. It was heavenly and I didn’t move all night. Best night of sleep I’ve had in a while.
Joshua has been keeping me company this morning & we’ve been playing Blink. I love lazy days of playing games. I love not being in constant nagging pain. I love my family & the great way they are taking care of me.
