I dragged myself out of bed, telling my left broken leg to or move smoothly without the usual reminder that the bone was a jigsaw puzzle of steel. It reminded me but it was a short lived problem. The next obstacle was to stand in an upright position. Even that works, although at the third try usually. Depositing my mobile phone and iPad on my walker I arrived at the docking station to feed them with electricity and then I opene the blinds and saw snow. It was not very much, but enough to cast a sprinkling of white on everything. As I am confined to home at the moment, I can watch it develop through the window.
The next chore, being Monday, was to contact my doctor and make an appointment to have the stitches removed from my leg. It has been stitched togther in four parts and I will be glad when they are out. They are covered with a super shower proof plaster. The nurse said I should have them out this week as the longer they stay, the more difficult it is to remove them. On Friday I will be stitch free and the little black threads I can see under the plaster will be gone.
In the meanwhile I am now finishing my pain killing tablets. The next obstacle is to have a normal shower and wash my hair, but I cannot get into the shower and stand at the moment. Today a guy will be becoming with a selection of two chairs for in the shower and bath. Of course washing is not big problem, although complicated, but I have no good alternative to wash my hair.
I know, the only interesting part of my life at the moment is how to recover from a broken leg and all its problems. I have even begun to watch the TV in the evening as I am too exhausted to read or play with my computer. I have noticed that nothing much has changed on the TV programmes and so I fall asleep whilst watching them. I am even frustrated because I cannot use the vacuum cleaner or mop. Something is missing in my golden oldie life. Mr. Swiss tells me he will finish the kitchen floor when I am finished with the computer. He will be shopping this morning so I have to construct the menu plan for today and tomorrow
Otherwise I will be watching the snow melt outside to keep myself busy.
And now to hobble on to something else, although I am not sure what exactly. Keep safe, see you around and be careful where you tread.
