Thank you for all the well wishes.
I apologize for not being able to thank you individually.
I was discharged from the hospital and I’m back home again.
My doctor was exceedingly pleased with how my surgery went.
He removed 3 inches of damaged tendon and did some other stuff too.
The staff at the hospital were very kind and helpful.
My right arm is in a sling so I’m using a dictation app to write.
I have a lot of medical rental equipment at home to help me be more comfortable.
The post surgery pain is very manageable. I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
I expected to be in much more pain than I am.
I’m not allowed to take a shower for two weeks which totally sucks.
I’m taking daily “sponge baths” and washing my hair in the kitchen sink.
I’ve been sleeping more than normal which, I suppose, is to be expected.
I realize I have weeks of recovery and physical therapy still ahead of me, but I’m very optimistic about where I’ll be two months from now.
Fred has been an absolute love.
He has been snuggling me and been very sweet.
He is very intuitive in regard to my arm and pain level.
As much as I was dreading this surgery,
I’m feeling very positive about the results.
I’m quite sure I’ll have a better quality of life as a result of having gone through it.
I’ll try to write more next week.
Right now I’m going to go take another nap.
Thank you again for all the well wishes!
