My parents had booked a trip to see my sister quite a while ago and me having surgery a week before they were due to leave was definitely not planned! Fortunately though, it was a week before and yesterday my parents left. Which means I am now alone! 

I can do what I want. Of course there is a bit of caution with that. After all, this surgery was only little over a week ago and I am still feeling some effects. 

The pain has gone. Well, I call it pain, but it never was much more than sensitivity really. Definitely not on a par with the pain I had after my operation in Norway, which was way more invasive. And not a look in on the pain I had prior to being admitted to hospital two weeks ago. That felt like a knife being twisted in my body. All. Night. Long.

No pain then. But the swimmers did come and go and are still there a bit. Especially if I move too sudden. Some of you will then say of course 'don't move too sudden'. Ah, yes. Clever clogs!

Not moving too sudden does not mean I can't go out. So today I will have a little outing. To the shops which are all of 500 meters from home, but still. My mum and I went yesterday to get some food for me, but just before she left, she told me to walk around the block every day to get my strength up again. Same difference really (ahem). 

So, that's it for me. Doing fine and dandy. The expectation right now is to be home for another week and then go back to work. Start with half days (as my schedule says) and a week and a half in, another week off to go to Rome...

    I'm so glad you are on the mend. AND your Mom was 100% right (as mom's usually are) short walks are a great prescription for healing and the fresh air is good too

  2. Your mother is right you have to walk a little bit each day ! I tell that my old man who had his hip operation but he is sooooo lazy that I have to invent things to make him move !! Stubborn on top !

    1. The 'I want to watch Strictly and whatever else takes MY fancy' time. Enjoying it so far, apart from the H which has taken hold again. Grrrr

  5. Hope you had a nice outing. Take care!

  6. We're glad to hear you are doing well. Miss O will surely take good care of you while your parents are away.

  7. for now you roam in moderation, and then you rome, baby! :)

  8. Ahh, those sudden moves. They can get you every time. Glad you are being able to motivate without to much swimming. You might get tired of wearing a swimsuit all the time. Seriously, so glad you found the problem and now it is 'fixed'.
