Yes, my head is still sore and I’ll have a few some bumps and bruises for a while, but I felt so much better today! I want to sincerely thank all of you for your kind wishes for a speedy recovery from my fall and my concussion. Today was the first day that I didn't spend in bed. Now that is an accomplishment! I'm off the pain meds and it is such a relief to feel semi-human again. Falling down and cracking one’s head on a concrete slab and ceramic tile really puts a damper on things!
The hospital staff said that it's going to take some time to get back to normal (… no wise cracks here, please!) and my girlfriend who is a physical therapist says I need to take everything slowly - step by step. But, I've been so bored! I can't wait for the day that I'm able to take a brisk walk around the neighborhood, drive to the grocery store, or just stand up without getting light-headed. I've taken the ability to do these ordinary things for granted, and I realize that I was pretty lucky not to have been injured any more than I was.
I want to finish up some blog reading tonight- my vision isn’t blurred and my head doesn’t ache like it did before, so I'm anxious to see what all of you have been up to these past six days. My goal over the few weeks is to do a little tweaking to a project I started a few weeks ago and to create a cloche or two for Marty's party. I know I may only accomplish a fraction of what I expect to do in that time because I’ve come to the realization that baby steps will take longer…
Thanks once again for sending good thoughts and prayers my way. Blogging friends truly are a blessing!
