Not pushing it!

I took about the same approach to today as if I was still in the hospital.  I went from the chair in the room to the bathroom and back to the bed.  The TV played on without anyone watching it.

Loyce made breakfast and brought it up mid morning.  And my son Ben came over on his motorcycle and moved one of our recliners up to the bedroom.  That got me out of bed and over into the corner where he put it.

It leans way back and lets me recline which helps immensely with the pain control.  Yet another pain med with narcotics and I was off for an afternoon nap.

They say this will improve with time, but it is hard to envision right now..........

  1. Time and the pain will pass, our thoughts are with you. Just follow your nurses orders and you will be up and about soon!

  2. Glad to hear you are taking it easy and not over doing. Just remember that that even when you start feeling better (and you will) not to over do it then either.

  3. Good to hear from you Rod and know that you are indeed taking it easy. Nothing left to do now but wait until time eases you back into shape and out on that bike again!

  4. Recovery always takes time so relax and enjoy being waited on for a while!

  5. Having a recliner brought right up to your room. Now, that is service:)) All the best for a speedy recovery........
