"Laid Up"!

I had toe surgery during spring break, didn't figure it would slow me down, but it has.  How will I ever lose those pounds I put on after Thanksgiving, and during the two months Mom was here? 
I find that hydrocodone is poison, and all I want to do after taking it is to sleep!   I want to sleep when I should be doing school work, like making a power point on how to take care of your liver, by avoiding alcohol and drugs.  I want to sleep when I am reading a thriller by Lee Child.
 One good thing about this is I have empathy for people who are limping in pain, using crutches, and are "laid up" too.  I have had time to think about my dad and how he must have felt being side lined with his foot surgeries.  Sitting in a chair must have been torture for him.  I just didn't realize how hard it is to sit until now.  I will make up for lost time later, just like my dad did!  Until then I will try to stay awake and get some enjoyable reading done, and work on the power point later. 


  1. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!

  2. It is truly hard to be off of one's feet. You can see all kinds of things that need to be done and you really need something that is across the room. I have broken my ankle and sprained my ankle (at different times of course)and it is no fun!!
    Glad you are better!!!
