Once again, I’ve meant to write all week. I did my first long drive, to Branson to see the pain doc, on Tuesday. It was not so bad. Cindy suggested a different route which was a little faster and a lot less annoying. It was actually easier than riding to Springfield with Cindy a couple weeks ago. New med to help me sleep. So far, not sure it’s helping a lot at going to sleep but it sure wants to keep me asleep all day.
Charlie, Zoe and I are snuggling much of the day. We share the heating pad. Zoe usually claims it, Charlie sometimes pushes her off – or squishes on there with her – and I sometimes take it since all this laying around hurts my back.
I’ve been meaning to tell you how Zoe scared one of my nurses. She went out to her car to get something and I guess Zoe felt that meant she had left. So when she came back, Zoe hissed at her and took a couple swipes at her. Both the cats are becoming more and more sociable. Zoe has not only been coming out to see the nurse or therapy person or Cindy, she’s letting people pet her. Even Charlie is coming out. Cindy likes to give them a treat and the both will lay on the bed while I’m getting my dressing changed. Now I just need to have people keep coming over to keep them socialized.
Things are okay. The wound is getting smaller and smaller. I’m getting more stamina and endurance and can go out and shop without being totally exhausted by the time I get home. Can you believe that almost half the year is gone?
More to catch up on. Another day.
