Thank you and other stuff

Friday, April 25, 2014

First, the thank you is long overdue. I want to Thank everyone for the support, prayers and goodies during my surgery and recovering. It was a lot of help mentally. To know that people where thinking of me when I couldn't do anything but lay there in bed helped keep me sane. I am not a very restful person, I like to get up and go. Being forced to stay in bed was hard. Being hooked up to all those tubes and wires was harder. I am recovering nicely now, I can get up and go as I please, exercise and such within reason. No lifting. That means the family carries the groceries and bottle water in. Can't lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk. That also means no carrying the laundry basket and vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs. That is what family is for.

I've started cardiac rehab and it is going well. I am progressing well. It is an interesting mix of people there. There are those who understand the importance of exercise in recovery and prevention of future heart problems. Then there are those who are only there because the doctor told them they can't go back to work until they complete rehab. They don't want to be there and put no effort into it. Those are the ones that drive the nurses insane. If I hear it is a treadmill and not a lawn mower many more times I may snap. But honestly, I enjoy my time there.

Have a great day!

    I think anything that is out of our normal routine is hard to get used to. But it sounds are you are handling everything very well -- and it's great news that you are able to come and go as you please.

    Be thankful you have family to carry the groceries and vacuum cleaner. Time passes so quickly, soon you'll be on your own again.

    I'm so glad you are doing well; being "snappy" with the nurses means you're almost done! Happy to have you back. Blessings, Joy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
