I'm still here, just haven't been online much. Computer troubles at our house mean that I have had to start sharing my computer with my son, and he is online a LOT. To be fair, he is a senior at UCSD, so it isn't all chat or games.
To tell the truth, I'm not sure I have much interesting to tell. I have spent a couple of very quiet weeks reading, sleeping, , listening to books, watching DVDs, well...you get the idea. Pretty low key to say the least. Last week I finally started going out for short trips, things like a trip to the fabric store, out to lunch, Starbuck's, the public library. I even had my hair cut and "enhanced" which also lifted my spirits since things were getting pretty scary in that department.
I am light years better since the surgery, but I am surprised to find that I am still recovering. I have no stamina and there is still occasional pain. I would be worried about this, but my doctor told me that as the nerves heal, you feel small twinges of pain and that it is actually a good sign.
I guess they give you six whole weeks for a reason. If I were 100%, there are at least a dozen projects around the house and garden that I would dive into, but I lack the strength. I guess that makes the perfect excuse to be lazy.
I have finished a bullseye quilt done from a fabric swap (and started about four years ago!) and am working on a log cabin. Not much to report in the artistic department, although I have done a little sketching here and there. Hopefully, now that I have cut way back on meds and am sleeping less I can spend more time being creative.
