Hello! I am back home... have been since Saturday. It's been a delight to be back home, even with having to "adjust" to a different type of mobility for a while. DH was with me Saturday, Sunday and Monday. This is my first day home alone. I'm half way through... so far... so good!
My insurance provided me with 7 days of rehab after my 3 day hospital stay. (I will have lots to tell you in the coming days about my rehab stay.) And now that I am home... I have home health care coming in. I have a nurse practitioner, and an occupational therapist and a physical therapist. (Nolli dog was not happy about having anyone come in and "bug" his Mama... he was pretty unglued by the doorbell ringing all the time.)
I am also on a constant passive motion machine (cpm) for flexibility and range of motion. I am up to 102 degrees of flex on the machine... which is pretty good for only 13 days post-op! Since DH has gone back to work, I have to get myself in and out of this contraption by myself. It sits on the bed and I can lie down... and I am in it for 2 hours at a time for a total of 6 hours. It's working... and it's doing a good job. It also wears me out and makes me want to sleep. But I need to get up and move about some afterwards to keep the blood moving.
That's about all that I have for now... Thank you for your encouragement, thoughts and prayers. Be blessed~
