|What it looked like then|
Because I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my recovery, I am very careful with every move - I think about what I'm doing rather than just rushing through this thing to get on to the next thing. I've puttered around in my yard for several hours each day - not in one long stretch - but for a bit of time here, another bit there. I'm also decorating (well, technically - I am thinking about decorating my front porch - not much actual decoration has happened) my front porch. I love the look of a front porch "room", so I've done a teensy bit of shopping for a colored rug to overlay the very functional but not particularly attractive rug that I purchased at Costco some time back. I found one that fit the bill for less than ten bucks, so I'm a happy camper.
Along with my procedure, it appears that I also had a "shouldectomy" - I had my "should" removed - as in I should be doing this or I should be doing that or I need to finish this because I should be XYZing. So far, I'm liking the results :-).
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Give yourself an Rx for Relaxation.
