Today A Million Memories selected this page as their Layout of the Week. Woohoo! That put a smile on my face! This layout was designed using DaisyD's Chloe Marie collection, sketch designed by Liz Qualman (Q-diggity) and the stitched flourish was designed my Gabriellep.

I had my first post-op appointment today. It felt good to have the cast off even if only for a few moments. The doctor took off my cast, cleaned up my foot from the residual bleeding, and then the nurse took these snapshots for me. Looks gross I know!!!! The top doesn't feel that bad, but the bottom incision flippin' hurts!! Big time Ouchie!! I have on a new split cast which should accommodate for swelling. Will return to the doctor in two weeks and at that time they will remove the stitches and probably put me in a walking cast or boot. In the mean time, I am to lay low with my foot above my heart. Man I hope this is the last time I ever have to go through this, hopefully the 5th time is the charm.

Layin' low & bored stiff!!

I knew this time was coming and I thought I was prepared for the down time, but I'm bored stiff!! This is my 5th foot surgery, so I've been down this road before, but it doesn't make it any easier. It's boring being confined to bed.
The first few days were great!!! I watched the last two season's of Weeds. ROFLMBO!!!!! Super funny series!!! Thanks girls for the recommendation!!!
I can't read much as the pain meds affect my ability to concentrate and blur my vision. But I did discover some really amazing products sold on those 3am Infomercials! LOL.....LOL
My hubby has been a great doctor, fluffing my pillows & bringing me popcicles, and my kids have been ever so helpful! Anything I need, they are here to help me!
I've also been doing a lot of blog surfing. Wish now I had started on some ATC's....I think I could work on those while horizontal!
I should enjoy this time.....soon enough I'll be back to normal.....and wishing for a quiet day in bed.
