My daughter and grandson were at the house and he was afraid to come close to me because of my surgery and his momma preaching to him to not get close. It took me two days but I was finally able to get him to join me on the chair so I could read him a book. I may not be able to get down on the floor and "wrestle" with him, this is the next best thing. After they left I went outside for a walk with my wife. She has been a complete blessing through surgery and recovery so far.
Today, I reduced the pain medications from 100 mg every 6 hours to 50 mg every 4 hours. It has worked great so far. If it works through tomorrow I will reduce it again on Friday. Todays bible study I came across Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." I was a confidence booster as I started my second set of exercise and was able to make a huge improvement over yesterday. This was straight up strength without assistance on getting my foot this far. I did assist with my other foot and was able to go well beyond 90 degrees.
It has been raining outside today and nobody to help me down the steps so I started walking for 10 minutes around the house. It is a lot of laps around the kitchen/living room. Wow, I gotta figure out how to get down the steps so I can go outside and walk. This will drive me nuts being stuck in the house. I am not sure why I didn't think about a hand rail before surgery.
Thank you Jesus for strengthening me through recovery.
