I am still in the same hospital but have moved into acute rehab.
I've been out of bed several times now. The serious pain is localized in my stapled sutures. My leg muscle is weak and a bit crampy, but I suspect that will go away quickly if my system works the way it usually does.
Horses and kitties at home are all doing just fine. Debbie is an absolute treasure the way she cares for things.
My new room is a little smaller with a view of the hospital roof instead of green hills and trees. There are plenty of forested areas behind the building, though, so I am not nature deprived.
Now I just need to get myself back in shape. One more challenge to overcome in life.
