This is my second day of recovery from ACL reconstruction surgery. I slept so much better last. Thank God. It's been almost 7 hours from my last painkiller. That's much better than most of yesterday when I would start counting down the minutes to my next dose.
At this moment I am laying in bed with a ice-water cuff circulating cold water around my knee and a CPM (continuous passive motion) flexing and straightening my leg. The motion is supposed to feel good. It does not.
My mom is here and taking good care of me and Brett. She's been my nurse, waiting on me hand and foot (knee and foot?). She's cooked dinner two nights in a row. And to keep herself busy she's been out exploring the neighborhood. Each time she goes out she brings me a little treat. Cute!
Yesterday I received a beautiful edible bouquet of flowers made out of fruit. Tres delicious. And fruit is exactly what I need at a time like this. Thanks, Ellen!
