I've been home since Friday afternoon, and enjoying (almost) every minute. No more technicolor dreams (and extreme nausea) brought on by pain meds, no more "coffee" that tastes like something wrung out of a dirty dishcloth, my own bed and best of all my family and pups nearby.
I'm getting aroung on one crutch, and experiencing negligible levels of pain (0-2 in nurse parlance). Still having to spend more time in bed than I'd prefer, but I'm trying to be a good patient and not overdo. Thanks again to everyone for your good wishes.
Am hoping to resume somewhat normal posting by early next week with more musings on shoes, "Cruise" and more.
