Happy Sunday friends !
I am happy to report it's day 12 after surgery and everything is doing great . Getting better every day . So very Thankful.
The photo above was taken yesterday after a awesome shower which those are getting easier each time too ( Praise God !)
Hubby still needs to help me in and out BUT standing is getting better and I seem stronger .
This past week our neighbors and friends brought over dinners . My Mom was here this past week . Seen the visiting nurse twice and we are thinking this upcoming Wednesday maybe her last visit since we both agree I am doing really good .
This past Wednesday the bruises on my hip and butt started to show up and even though we couldn't see them the week after surgry I sure could feel them every time I sat down.
This surgery I must say was totally different from my knees alot easier and also I had NO anesthesia instead I had a Epidural and I think that was so much better. After surgery I was alert and actually hungry PLUS no yucky tube going down my throat.
I keep trying to walk with a cane and as of today it's just not happening yet ! I have this thought that once I can start using the cane I will be able to get down stairs to my Stampin Studio . I have to keep saying to myself it has only been 12 days .
Sleeping is getting much better as well and walking too . We have had to make the walker higher 2 times since being home .. How is that even possible ? Did I grow a couple inches IDK.
My new hip seems to have made my right leg a slight bit longer but the doctor says It will get better in a few weeks ...I personally think I have been walking with my bad hip and the limping for so long I just have to get use to my new hip Plus I have to give it time to settle in .
It's amazing there is only a 5 1/2" incision when I see what he took out and put in ~ Holy moly ~ Just amazing !
BIG hugs to my amazing hubby he has been though so much with my surgery and then the 1st day home our water heater started leaking water in the basement .
Praise God he found it before water went into the classroom and my new studio WHEW! but that meant he was going to buy a new water heater and put it in PLUS this past Friday his truck AC idler pulley and fan control resistor /relay pack went out and that needed to be replaced.
Then yesterday he wrapped our boat for the winter . Okay so lets just Pray nothing else needs to be fixed for awhile .
Thank you all for your sweet cards you have sent me over the last couple weeks . You all are so SWEET! So many smiles in my mail box ~Thank you from the bottom of my heart . I will try & get those all posted soon .
This past week I recieved the Founder Circle swaps I had my friend Sharon swap for me . Thank you Sharon !
The swaps are amazing as usual and really wouldn't expect anything less from the top Demonstrators in the company . This year Founder Circle Theme is Home for the Holidays and our swaps had to use items from the Holiday catalog HERE .
There are so many Christmas / Thanksgiving/ Halloween swaps I love them all . I will share them with you soon.
I also got a BIG box from Stampin'Up! which had all the pillow gifts from Founders Circle . So excited to open that box too and see all the beautiful things . Thank you Stampin'Up!
Have a Wonderful Sunday friends !
Until later.. Happy Stampin!
