I made it upstairs and had a shower!!! Unencumbered by IV lines or using blankets as a moat! It was wonderful and I didn't want to get out but Bruce was waiting for his turn. I even tried climbing the stairs normally, rather than one step at a time and I got there. This really brightened my day, my Mom's Christmas Cactus was blooming it's little heart out, the cool temps and bright south sun really agrees with it.
One or both cats are my constant companion, Zoe really likes to hog the fluffy blanket that was a gift from a friend.
The hospital bed is higher than Clyde can jump so he gets ready and then leaps with his front feet till I grab and pull him up. Once settled in, he can sleep there all day, unless Zoe gets her nose out of joint and bugs him until he leaves.
We decided to have our own little Superbowl party so I made some homemade breadsticks with dipping sauce, chicken tenders, chicken quesadilla, chips, salsa and sour cream. A veggie plate with broccoli, cauliflower, Bernice's sweet pickles, Mark Carlson's dill pickles, Bruce had a beer and I had a root beer. It's a good thing we ate lightly at dinner!
I've made 2 trips to the basement today and 2 upstairs and think I'm doing great. I also think it's time to go sleep in my own bed and just use the hospital bed for the days, it will be nice to be snuggled up against my hubby again, it's been a long time coming.
Boy am I ever full, burp!
