Post-Surgery and Feeling Like Myself Again

I'm back!

Some of you may know that I've had a bit of a rough year with regards to my health. I don't think any of you know it was bad enough for me to undergo the knife a few weeks back. Without going into too many details, I will say that most days I was in a lot of pain. It took the better part of a year and nearly a dozen doctors to finally come to conclusion that I needed to have surgery. That was not the solution I was hoping for and honestly, I was a bit depressed about things pre-surgery. But I took a deep breath and went ahead with the surgery knowing it was for the best.

Then came the recovery. The first few weeks were really hazy because I was high as a kite on pain meds. Then came a few weeks where I could shuffle-walk around but I was still on doctor's orders to take it easy. I wasn't able to do much of anything. Sitting upright was too difficult which meant I couldn't spend time on the computer or at the sewing machine; and I was feeling so bad that I didn't even crochet or do any sort of hand-work. It was like there was a craft embargo in place.

I'm feeling better though. The last two weeks I have made great strides. I can do the dishes and laundry again, much to the relief of Mr.123quilt. Those chores are hard! *wink* I can even sit at a computer long enough to write a blog post! That's huge for me and I'm feeling very accomplished. Lol! I'm hoping to start physical therapy very soon. *fingers crossed*

I guess the point of all this is to say that I'm back from the far side of the moon. Radio silence on the blog has been broken. I won't be busting out a completed king-size quilt this week or anything like that. No. I'll be taking it slow.

Until next time,
- Sarah
