I had surgery Monday morning to wire my elbow back together after my fall. For the first 24 hours they used a nerve block because it's such a painful surgery and that was mighty mighty creepy. It felt like I had somebody else's arm and hand attached to me. Warm but no feeling. The worst of the pain fortunately didn't last that long and I was able to quit the strong pain pills after a day and a half. The worst thing for me about those, besides feeling like a tired zombie, is constipation.
I thought perhaps I could get back to taking care of my 95 year old mother tomorrow with some help from other family but I haven't even gotten back to getting out of my pajamas yet and everything makes me tired tired tired. So I cancelled that and instead my son is going to come over and help me.
Today's advice: no matter how much fun falling over may look like, it's not! Don't do it.
