So today marks nine weeks since surgery. The scar is beginning to lighten a bit, AND my chest/belly hair is growing back in to help disguise part of the scar.
There are a couple of yellow spots about an inch left and right of my navel and up about an inch. They look like old bruises or something. Not sure what they are from. Also, in the picture, it seems like a dull faded bruise above the yellow marks as well. Oh well….
So, how am I feeling? Generally, I am feeling more and more like my old self, except that my hip continues to give me a lot of grief. I should be getting the Celebrex in the mail tomorrow or the next day. I’m also supposed to be getting the new walker later this week. Once that is here I will be more able to be moving yarns here and there as I need to, so that will be a good measure of progress when I can start working. I’m looking forward to that.
This morning, Harris County Judge Hidalgo issued a “stay-at-home” order for the county. Not strictly a lock-down, and various essential businesses will be allowed to remain open. But for the most part people are being advised to work at home if they can, and only leave their homes for essential errands like groceries or doctor visits. For me, this isn’t a big deal since I hardly ever go anywhere at all, but it will definitely impact a large chunk of the population.
Today will be the last day for the visiting nurse to check me over. Last week was my last PT visit.
