What a Crazy Three Weeks!

My daughter came home from college on May 1st and my life has been crazy ever since. All her stuff literally took over my dining room. I didn’t know one girl could have so much stuff. She was barely home when my computer crashed. I never realized how much I depend on my computer until I didn’t have one for over a week. Trying to work at home was bad enough, there was no way for me to do anything social on my work computer. I guess I am much more attached to my computer than I thought.

By the time my computer got fixed my boy was home with all of his stuff. Luckily he does not have much stuff or I would have had to move out! It took us over a week to go through all my daughter’s things and sort them out. We took some stuff to grandma’s house to be stored and the rest we put in the basement. I also wanted to set up my camper once before my surgery to put some stuff in it and let some of the family see it. Everyone was impressed by how good I parked the camper and set it up without too much effort.  I need to be able to handle things by myself so I do not know what the big deal was all about. Above all I do not want to wreck my camper or my SUV, so for me it was a no-brainer, be careful!

I barely got my house and affairs in order when it was time for my surgery. On May 21 I checked in to the University of Chicago at 6am. My surgery was supposed to last between 3 and 4 hours unless there were complications. I was in surgery for a total of 8 hours! The doctor said there were plenty of complications but that now I am all fixed. I am going to have a long recovery time. For the next month I can lift nothing heavier than 10 pounds and I am to rest as much as possible. I will be working from home once again which is fine with me. My dog sprained her back leg a few days before my surgery and cannot get up on the couch or bed by herself. My kids have to pick her up every time we move from room to room. Both dogs know something is wrong with me and my dog has not left my side since I got home.  I hate the feeling of having to depend on someone for almost everything. My daughter has really stepped up and taken over my care. My medicine schedule alone is enough to set your head spinning.

I have not been keeping up with my fellow bloggers since the beginning of the month. I plan on starting where I left off and catch up on everything.  I know some of my friends here have been posting regularly and look forward to catching up. Please do not be offended if I am commenting on an old post, it is new to me. I want to thank all my friends for their prayers and well wishes. I look forward to a full recovery and can’t wait to get back in the swing of things.  I am taking one day at a time and I have faith that in the end it will all turn out OK.
