I'm STILL reading the biography of Gen. Braxton Bragg and enjoying it and, strange for me, also reading a mystery called Mr. Kill from Amazon Vine. Meanwhile everything is a huge project because of my immobilized wrist and hand.
Saw the doc Mon. and found that I can't get out of this until Feb. 2. Made a late afternoon appt. so we can go out to eat to celebrate and Dave won't have to cut up my food for me. :D
The main problems? Still not proficient in brushing my teeth with the wrong hand. So silly. Also having to put a plastic bag over my right arm to shower. Third, can't type as fast as my brain works. :)
The main benefit? Dave has to wash the dishes. I'm amazed he hasn't replaced our broken dishwasher. I thought surely this would do the trick.
Oh well, at least I don't have any pain - never did hurt since the surgery. And I'm healing well.
I expected to have lots of time to read but everything else seems to take up that extra time. Still, I'll get there. Whenever I feel frustrated, I think about all the soldiers who have lost limbs, and stroke victims who have permanently lost the function in one side. I know this is only temporary; I can't imagine how they keep their spirits up. I have a new respect for them.
