i have been in the bed and off my foot for 4 days now (not counting surgery day itself) and i have got to tell you...i am ready to get up! i talked with the doctor's office this morning and the prospect of being up and able to move around and go, go, go is not looking promising. i was advised except for quick trips to the kitchen and the restroom that i am to stay in the bed with my foot elevated (toes above my nose, as they say).
so, i am well equipped for my stay on the sofa bed (too many stairs to get to my bedroom) with my laptop, an ice pack, more chick flicks that you can count, some snack food (from baskets sent by friends...thank you!), and pain medicine.
i am off to watch a marathon of chick flicks and make the most of my stay in bed.
until next time...
