My momma always said that the 8th day after surgery was the day to be taken with doing nothing at all.
Now if that is just an old wives' tale? Well, I am an old wife - and a day of doing nothing at all seems like a good idea.
And if there is anything right and good about it? Well, I didn't want to take a chance on messing that up.
So, guess what I have done today?
NOTHING AT ALL!!! ROFL :-)
Rick and Brooklyn fixed us chicken stew for lunch with cheesy cornbread. Mmmmm...it was good! Would have been good anytime, but on the first chilly day of fall? OMW! It was (is) good!
Chicken stew without 'maters or 'taters ... but oh so good!
Chicken ... broccoli ... english peas ... carrots ... yellow squash ... seasonings ... cream of chicken soup ... goooood!
It was fun to listen to P-paw and Brooklyn bantering back and forth. She kept telling P-paw that he "is weird" ... ROFL.
I am sorer today than what I thought I would be ... mostly at the incision site. Over the rest of my body, the swelling has just about all gone down. Good. Except now the bruises are showing better, and the veins are still popped up from the IV's. But, I am thankful to be alive and that the surgery went well, with a good report following! Praise the Lord!!!
Going to Dr. Tris on Monday morning for him to check the incision. See if it is ready to have the staples removed. NOT looking forward to that. Think I will be a baby and beg for mercy - a local! LOL
Rick goes to Dr. Cutrell Monday morning as well for his pre-op clearance. Praying that there are no problems, no complications. He needs to have this shoulder surgery. He has suffered in pain long enough. Knowing there will be more pain, different pain, but the pain of healing.
I am going to get started on going thru my pictures this weekend, and continue until I am done! I have literally thousands of pictures - and more to get from my brother, and from my mother-in-law. I am going thru them to see which ones I (or someone else) wants a copy of, then going to upload them to my computer - and on to Wal-mart for copies, add some to my website here, make some online photo albums, save to disks or flash drives, put all the hard copies in albums. I also take some of our pictures and put them on DVD's - that is fun to watch.
I get overwhelmed with the amount of photos I have!!! But, I certainly have time now to work on it all. So, I might as well get started.
Yes, ma'am ...
I have started our genealogy ... and am going to be working some more on it, too. I would like to get it all uploaded and added to this website as well. Complete with pictures and even some stories and recipes to share.
Well, guess it's time to get back to doing nothing for the rest of today and this evening :-) ...
Praying for each one to be God blessed beyond all words! Love y'all so very, very much!!!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
