::on the road to recovery::

This afternoon was the first time out of my house. I went to my post op visit to see how my ear was doing. My doctor says that everything is looking good so far. :) I'm still taking my pain meds but not as frequent as I was before. Hopefully by the end of the week I won't need them at all. That is good news!
It's amazing how weak your body gets when you don't use it. After my appointment Lewis took me to eat lunch at Luby's. It was nice to have a portion like that and be able to enjoy it. We went to a furniture store afterward to look around and I knew I couldn't stand very long because my body was reminding me how weak I was. I don't make a very good patient.. just so you know. I want to feel 100% again so I can carry on with my life.
I need to take it one day at a time. I still have more recovering to do..
here's some flickr pretties for today:

Hi Melissa ~ So glad to hear you are doing better every day. I suppose a diet of Jell-o isn't great for sustaining strength and stamina, eh? ;o) Take care of yourself!
