I had surgery on a Tuesday morning, and was in an especial amount of pain for the next 24 hours or so. Happily, they aren't stingy with pain medication at the hospital. The following afternoon I went home, feeling delicate but also feeling positive about our health care system.
People have been very kind. I've received a lot of help, offers of more help, and a lot of food. It has been extremely useful and very appreciated. Work has been very understanding, and I've eased myself back into the office this last week.
My left hand is still quite swollen (I call it my cartoon hand). I've been getting used to doing things with one hand but more time and energy is required for even simple tasks.
No sock camp for me. I'm very grateful to the Yarn Harlot for finding someone to take my place in Port Ludlow and I'm looking forward to going another time. Still, I'll be very interested to read blog posts about camp to see what it was like.
Yesterday was really the first day that I felt good about leaving the house, and able to walk around comfortably. In recognition of feeling on the mend, I put the ice cream maker in the freezer before going to bed, and am now making a batch of Coffee Frozen Yogurt - the easiest recipe from The Perfect Scoop, requiring the merest amount of measuring and whisking. It's got me thinking about whether perhaps I can do a little one-handed cooking after all, maybe even a little one-handed embroidery....
