I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I have to say: my craniotomy in September 2005 was easier to bounce back from than this foot surgery. That’s not to say brain surgery was easy, because it was not! But the past few days have sucked… I can’t walk without being in pain, the pain medication itself renders me incapable of doing much of anything, and I can’t drive… all of which means I’m completely isolated in my apartment, dependent upon other people to bring me things and take me places, and on top of it all I am half-dazed most of the time. Not that I’m complaining — my friends are awesome and they are all stepping up and helping me out and doing all those wonderful things friends do when they are called upon for help. I just wasn’t expecting that it it would be this difficult.
