Seems like time has flown by as well as drug on since my surgery on Monday....how can that be? The first few days I spent mostly either in my bed with my leg elevated or laying on the couch with my leg elevated. I did keep taking my pain pills during the first few days and that got me through and I did a lot of sleeping those days as well.
Wednesday I decided I could get along without constant pain pills so just took regular Tylenol during the day but did take the pain pill before bedtime to ensure pain free sleep. So far this program of pain management is working and am more alert because I am taking less and less of the pain medication.
Today I got out a a miniature that I had started quilting on a long time ago but had put it away - probably from lack of interest or I got busy with something else. I did do a little quilting on it this morning and think it will be a good way to spend some of the many hours I have to fill every day.
The pieces on this Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt are about 1/2" across. This is a quilt that I have been working on - sporadically for many, many years. This quilt holds many memories for me of sitting in hospital waiting rooms when my Dad had his many heart surgeries and other times he was hospitalized before his death. It went to the hospital for the stays with my mother several times too. A friend gave me the perfect name for it "Lady In Waiting" because of all the times it helped me through those times that were sometimes very difficult.
