Hey everyone! I’m back!
Its been a freaking crazy month and a bit, non?
Short recap: Trip, Home, Surgery, Life, Surgery Complications, Life, Today 🙂
I am going to try and get back on top of the blogging thing. I seem to be out of whatever funk I was in. I hope.
I think I will tell more about my trip on Thursdays. Kinda break it up a bit.
But yeah, anyways…
I think I mentioned I had surgery the beginning of December. I had hardware taken out of my leg from a previous surgery (after I broke it in April). While only a day surgery – it was still interesting.
My leg? Almost immediately felt so much better then when the plate was in… yet it still hurt like a mofo from the surgery. ..if that makes any sense.
Things went good though. I was allowed to put weight on it right away. Which of course ment I probably over did it – and then over babied it. It is what I do.
Things were going great. Stitches came out, I was allowed to shower… everything was fantastic!
Unfortunately there was an infection under where one of the stitches was (were? Had been? That sounds better)
I was running my finger down one of the steristrips because it was starting to pull off. Well, my finger went right into the incision. I touched bone.
After about 20min of gagging and crying, I drove myself to the hospital. Where they cleaned me up, gave me massive antibiotics, and told me to book with my surgeon. Which I did.
So. That happened boxingday. It is now the middle of January, and I think I am almost done with the bandage changes and visits to the community nurse. I hope.
Either way – it meant another few weeks of sponge baths and washing my hair in the kitchen sink. Not the greatest thing ever. But I did shave my legs Sunday. That was a celebration, right there.
Ive also had my brother stay with me to help me out with all the after surgery ‘fetch-n-carry’ so that’s been nice.
I have been able to play a few games too. Totally have lots of fodder for reviewing! Yay new content!
I hope that you guys got along okay without me. I know how important I am to everyone, so I’m glad you’re all okay. 😉
