Day by Day things are getting better. Today I decided it was time for a hair cut. I phoned my hair stylist and asked her if she thought we could manage a shampoo and cut. She said sure, she could do it a 4pm. So hubby took me and sat patiently while she took care of business. I feel so much better just getting that taken care of. It really should have been done before going to hospital but I didn't have much warning about the surgery. Everything happened so quickly but now it's done and it feels great.
Yesterday Mom's friend came and washed down all the walls in the computer room. We decluttered the entire room but much of it is in the living room waiting for me to go through it. Some will go into a yard sale, some will be sold online and some will go to charity. Many of my old manuscripts will be shredded and put in the garbage. I just don't have room for them anymore and I haven't used them in years. The rule is that a writer never throws away any of their writing, but that is not realistic. I will keep all my personal stories but the travel and health articles must go. That will actually make a huge difference. I have hundreds of them.
Brandon came tonight after school and helped hubby set up the bed and night table in the computer room. He now has his own little space at Grandma's and we even were able to get him a 20 inch TV at Bibles for Missions for $20. It is like brand new and I'm assuming it came out of an estate sale. He is one happy young man.
Early this morning I went for a walk. It was such a beautiful day. Hubby went with me and even though I can't walk far in this area because of the hills, it felt good to be out and about on such a beautiful day. The birds were singing and it was a great start to a good day. Things are getting easier.
I'm doing quite a bit for myself. Hubby gets the meals. I put in a couple loads of laundry and started them but he has to transfer them to the dryer and also out of it. I can fold it if he puts it on the table, but he's inclined to try to do it himself to save me the trouble. I've tried explaining to him that I need to do some things to build up my strength, but he still tries to spare me the trouble.
I'm only napping once a day now, which is a vast improvement from the 3 or 4 naps I was having when I came home from the hospital, so things are coming along.
Thanks to everyone for your loving support and kindness as I've traveled this difficult and sometimes scary journey. It's hard to believe all this can happen in a matter of 3 weeks or so.
