Today was the surgery on my lower left arm and my left hand. Everything went fine until I woke up. I thought I would have a few band aids, and in a week I would just take the stitches out, or stop at the clinic near the resort and have the nurse remove the stitches. Well guess not, I have a partial cast and the arm is wrapped from elbow to finger tips, and it is in a sling. The Doctor said no one will do anything to it other then him. So we will be back in 2 weeks to have the dressings and stitches removed.
I’m not in much pain, but then I’m taking lots of pain medication, and the arm is still pretty numb. I could have been partially awake during the procedure, however I choose to be out. No way did I want to know what was going on.
We arrived at the surgery center at 10:30 and were home by 2:30. I slept for a couple of hour before we went to our granddaughter Lizz'y’s 17th birthday party. A nice celebration, dinner, cake and ice cream.
Birthday girl with her boy friend Drew, they were trying to be cute. Worked for me.
The Skinner’s. Our son-in law Dave, grandson Matt, granddaughter Amanda and daughter Teresa.
Our daughter Sherry has beautiful gardens in her yard. She really has a green thumb.
We are headed back to the resort Tomorrow, and looking forward to it. It was a busy week with doctor appointments. We did have fun spending time with all our kids.
Boy it takes a long time to do the blog when you type one handed.
