So .. I saw my Podiatrist today and while my foot is looking less angry and is healing on schedule, I’m to stay off it and rest until he tells me otherwise. Next appointment? 2 weeks. And I thought I’d be back to work in 2 weeks. Not so.
Last week, I struggled to read much less retain anything. I couldn’t follow a movie to save my life. Hubbs found me dozing more often than not. I suppose that’s my body’s way of telling me it needs some down time.
But today, I do notice a slight change, my mind feels sharper, my memory’s better and we’re settling into a routine here at home. Frankie (the dog) is loving every minute of it.
So tonight, I’ve set a “date” with Oscar (Academy Award movies now available OnDemand through Comcast – yay!) and a Rx-induced home shopping purchase is on its way to me. Apparently Vicodin made me feel I couldn’t live without “Sheer Cover” makeup as sold on HSN? Lord knows I have plenty of time to play with it; thank goodness for 30 day return policies.
If I can just stay awake, I will be really pleased.
