So this morning we decided to double up my pain meds before I tried to do the marathon to the bathroom (ten feet, maybe fifteen feet away).
As I said yesterday, it took me more than half an hour to do the round trip then. I wanted to improve that to less than 15 minutes.
Today I decided that I would go the whole distance on crutches, if at all possible. Heh heh heh. I blew that half hour time to smithereens!
Once I found a comfortable angle to dangle the bum leg, I was greased lightning! YEE HAW! I bet it wasn’t more than two minutes each direction for a grand total of four minutes!
And now they’ve got me sitting up in a real chair (though not the fancy one that is apparently like a sophisticated La-Z-Boy). I can see out my window from a different angle now and I can see a whole bunch of PINK flowers in the flower box.
It’s a good day.
