I'm home!

I was released from the hospital Sunday. It should have been great day but Saturday night my mom tripped in the garage and had to spend several hours in the ER at the same hospital I was in. She wound up chipping four teeth and breaking one rib. Add to that the pharmacy wouldn't fill my prescription for pain medication and the surgery totally brought back my maralgiaparasthetica symptoms. Tonight I'll dig out my TENS equipment to help me manage the pain.
I can't do any sewing or paper crafting because I'm on blood thinners for nine more days and can't risk cutting myself.

Physical therapy has been going really well. They say I have a high pain tolerance. Really? Quite a bit of swelling has gone down now and I can barely move my knee at all! So much for pain tolerance.

  1. Glad to hear you are home. I hope you recover quickly! Sorry to hear about your mother. Ribs can take a long time to heal, so I hope hers heals quickly as well.

  4. Thinking of you and your mom - get well soon, and take care of yourselves. The sewing machines can wait, esp. if I'm any indication. lol
