The surgery went smoothly, and it seems I can type fairly well and with almost no pain now that the bandages are off.   The recovery though, as I feared, has been a bitch.
I am simply a miserable person when I'm "limited".  "Limited" by pain, or a handicap, or being lost in an unfamiliar city- I'm miserable.
Add to the misery of hoping the regular things will be taken care of, like the shopping, and cooking, only to find my "helpers" sitting on the sidelines and waiting for they always do.

I wonder if I died how long it would take before someone realized they'd need to write a grocery list and go to kroger?   I suppose if I actually died family and friends would jump in and handle a multitude of motherly tasks for a period of time, at least until the life insurance kicked in- then they'd order take out until they ran out of money?   I want to get better soon, but I don't want to return to the castle and be the ruling queen just yet.     Unfortunately it is my castle (or hive?) and no one else knows how to run it smoothly.   For now I'm trying to find contentment in the fact I can wash my own hair (with a water proof glove) and dry it with only a little help.

More soon...and hopefully I'll be back to normal...or whatever I was :)

Glad to hear you're on the mend.

You can still be the ruling queen. You can just rule from where you want. Dictate what you want, when you want it and how you want it done. Slice of cake huh?
I don't think I would call it a handicap, but more of a temporary inconvenience.
I hope it goes well and as free from pain as possible.

Normality's overrated. Mind you, if everyone was like me, I'd be normal.

Glad you are on the mend.

What you are is awesome. And with a Pixie to help take care of you, you couldn't be in better hands.

I'm thinking they'd probably go to the grocery store without a list.

Get well soon.
