Grace In Small Things: 40/2010

What I am grateful for this week:
  • After a month off on Medical Leave, I was FINALLY able to go back to work this week (with Doctor's restrictions, of course)
  • MAKING IT through the whole work week - - some days were tougher than others
  • A Chocolate/Heath Bits/Cool Whip topped cake brought by my Director as a "Welcome Back" to work
  • Cool nights and warm kittycats - - makes for good sleeping
  • Chicken Tetrazzini for supper last night - - the whole house smelled wonderful
This afternoon I go back to the Doctor for my third post-op checkup. Hopefully the stitches will be taken out, and I also hope to get some news on when I might be able to try some walking. I will admit to being impatient, but - - I also know that following Doctor's orders to the letter is an absolute must. Baby steps, people, baby steps....

Count your blessings - - join Grace In Small Things.

Good for you for following doctor's orders to a T! Baby

I was non-weightbearing for two different 8-week periods a few years ago after my own foot surgeries so I have all kinds of sympathy for you. It amazed me how much muscle tone I lost in even those few short weeks. Take it slow, do everything the doctor and/or physical therapist say but only what they say, and you will be back on your feet in no time!
