Recovering

I'm writing a short post (left handed and slowly) to let you know that I'm here and recovering from my shoulder surgery. It'll be a week on Tuesday so I'm slowly coming around. For anyone having gone through any surgery involving a general, you'd know the drill,  wooziness, nausea, vomiting (maybe), pain, constipation and more.  I see the doctor after 2 weeks to remove the dressing and find out what's next. I was told I'd have to wear the sling for 6 weeks, yuk, and then no lifting or heavy work until 3 months with lots of physio. On the bright side, I can sleep in bed and I'm actually more comfortable there. Also, the doctor said she was very pleased with the surgery. I will do my best with my restrictions and physio. So, probably no sewing for a while. I should also be able to out for walks once I'm more stable and I figure out how to get my jacketed arm in a sling, lol. Ive been wearing pyjamas for a week! I also discovered a new show on Netflix, Paradise, about the beginnings of a department store in the 1870's.
I'm reading The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild. I finished a book but can't find it and can't remember what it was, lol. This morning, I made one handed muffins! Blueberry banana.
Wherever you are I hope you're enjoying the day in your own way. My hubby has gone off for a ski. He needed to get out.

Holly, May yout recovery be slow and steady but as quick as possible. I was concerned that you might have fallen during the snowstorm you just had! Take care and let your creative mind guide you to new possibilities.

So glad yo are recovering Holly. Those shoulders are hard to deal with after surgery. Have you seen The Crown on Netflix? It is incredible. Rest my friend.

I'm glad your surgery happened on schedule and that it went well. Take it easy so you don't have to have it repaired again.

Slow and steady, you will be back to sewing in no time. Right now enjoy other activities.

You know the drill and I know you'll follow it. Just think, when your shoulder is healed, there will be no stopping you. Sending you lots of healing thoughts and virtual hugs.

Goodness..take care...do make sure you get all the physical therapy in that you can. It's the best way to recoup quickly!
You have to watch Doc Martin on Netflix....Folye's War is another good series. Take care!

Pleased your surgery is now behind you. I admire your muffin baking exercise - they look delicious.
I always think getting over the effects of the anaesthetic is the hardest part of surgery, it really knocks me.
Take care of the shoulder, don't overdo things!!

Hope your recovery is whole and complete, Holly! It sounds like you're doing well. And congratulations on the new boy, he's beautiful -- you have much to look forward to. Catching up here. xo

May your healing go swiftly! Sometimes these things become a time of great creativity in our minds as we rest and have time to think.
Spending time with a good book seems to a good way to pass time.
