So sorry I have been absent for such a long time. A few bumps in the road to recovery from surgery. Everything went fine. I see the doctor tomorrow and hopefully the staples will be removed.
Right now I am having trouble sitting for any length of time. The leg is just not comfortable hanging down or being propped up. When the staples are gone, maybe the relief will be better.
I haven't done much artwork. A few sketches here and there. Nothing really at the hospital. The drugs did their job really well. I just enjoyed some la-la land time.
I will try to start posting daily from here on. Happy Thanksgiving for all in the US who celebrate.

Jeanne - It's good to have you back and I'm so sorry to hear that you've been having problems. I kept checking to see whether you were back.

From experience of how it has affected others I know it can be rather painful afterwards - although hopefully you're now at the 'uncomfortable' rather than the painful stage. It can take quite a bit of time to get back to normal. Just make sure you do the recommended exercises and you'll maximise your mobility in due course.

Glad to hear you are safely home, Jeanne. I do hope this horrible post-op time passes quickly and you soon experience the up side of what your surgery has achieved.

Jeanne, I'm glad you're feeling well enough to add to your blog. I've missed communicating with you. Surgery isn't easy, and recovery is hard too. It will probably take a little time to push through and get on track again. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and I hope you get back to sketching soon. A big hug from the east coast!!

I'm glad you're back Jeanne and recovering. It does take time, so be patient as you can and you'll be dancing in no time!

Happy Thanksgiving!
