Bunion surgery complete. The bones in both my big toes cut in half, straightened & pins put in. Had the bump on the top of each big toe shaved off, as well as the bumps on the side. Sounds gross right? Ya, it sort of is. This was yesterday.
Today the pain has been off and on, battled off by pain pills. (I am fully prepared to admit to any & all humiliating things I have said/written/done while under the influence..as I am sure there has been plenty & will be more) The most difficult part so far, has been not being able to walk. Chris has had to carry me to the bathroom, bedroom, etc. He has been great, he even got me a chocolate shake today! However, he is extremely swamped at work...so busy, he can barely speak to me while he is at home working. He only looks up about once an hour "need anything? is it time for ice?" Poor kid, he has been working 7 days a week & barely sleeping. He even forgets to eat! Ahh, I hope he finds balance soon. I'm lucky he was able to work remotely from home to take care of me.
Today, while he was at work for a few hours, I was in a lot of pain and feeling pretty miserable. Our doorbell rang & look what showed up! Sweet Grandma Rita sent me this fruit basket. I just love her. She is always so thoughtful.
THEN the UPS man dropped a package off, and to my surprise Britney had sent me a surgery survival kit. check it out! She also included 5 cd's she burned for me. What an amazing friend.
