Chopping wood

Posted Feb 19 2009 5:10pm
Recovering from joint replacement is a lot like cutting wood; it's the same thing over and over again. I'm supposed to be exercising every hour while awake but I must admit I'm not getting it done. I suspect the physical therapist says to do it that often in order to assure that I'll, at least, exercise 3 or 4 times a day.

I've had a strange spell of pain in the evening the past two days. That is not that unusual except that I've had virtually no pain since the surgery. This is a moderate pain like a tooth ache. It subsides with a pain tablet. I haven't yet figured out what is causing it.

Jane and Jenni went to the store today and picked up a shower chair and other stuff so I can shower in our extra bathroom. Our big bathroom has a very small shower stall and they were afraid I will slip and fall. (So am I)

Today is my 14th day post-op. It's hard to believe. It seems like 4 or 5 weeks ago. Time flies when you're having fun.
