There are good things about post neck surgery I rather enjoy. For instance, for 3 weeks I couldn't pick up anything heavier than a dinner plate and everyone fluttered around me reminding me of that fact. I'm now at the 4 week stage, so I can lift heavier things like a clothes basket while I'm doing laundry. Not bad!
I attended the Moonlight & Magnolia Conference where peeps Tricia Mills and Kimberly Lang won Maggie Awards. (Congrats, ladies!) Though I'm embarrassed to say I missed the ceremony because I was in my room trying to get my neck to relax from all the many wonderful workshops I attended. Pooh!
Back to the real world this week. Today, I tried to vacuum. Got much of the lower floor done before my neck started throbbing. Apparently, one uses more muscles in the neck than imagined. Took a break and laid down to relax. Okay, vacuuming is out for now. Woo-hoo for me!! A good thing! Something I can tell my hubby I'm not ready for yet. (Pirate!)
Mom pitched in and finished vacuuming for me. Yay!
So the lesson learned this week?
I still have a way to go and I'm sure there will be more steps in which I can better gauge my recovery. But the great thing is my pain is gone and the writing is flowing freely for the first time in two years. Gotta love modern medicine and the miracles the Lord grants us!
I always say a day shouldn't go by that nothing is learned. What have you learned this past week? Or is there anything particular you'd like to learn?
