I wish I had more to post about, but today I pretty much slept all day. In fact right now I'm using the talk to text function on my phone and I have my eyes closed. I guess my body just needs the extra sleep to recover from everything and so that's what I've been doing. Plus today we had a blizzard here in Plymouth, literally, we got 14 inches of snow with gust of wind up to 35 mph. So even if I could go outside, I wouldn't and me and David stayed inside all day.
I have heard some comments from people about the picture in a previous post where I was standing up with my stump down, wearing all my patriots gear. I am allowed to stand up but I should keep my stump elevated which means I hold my stump up. In the picture I literally let it hang down for one or two seconds while David snapped the picture. I just wanted people to see what it looks like, and I actually wanted to see what I look like since I hadn't seen it fully standing like that before. I have a lot of strength from standing on my one leg for the last nine months since my left leg had become unusable. So really there was not anything dangerous about what I was doing and I always keep my leg elevated whenever I get up, usually transferring into my wheelchair.
Lastly we just wanted to let everyone know that we will be doing a live broadcast through Facebook of the changing of the dressing on my stump. We will be doing it on Saturday the 11th at 8 PM EST (6 in ID, 5 in CA). We will be doing it through The Adventures of a One Legged Woman Facebook page so if you haven't already, please go to the Facebook page and like it. I will be posting lots of things on Facebook as well.
Tomorrow we're headed into Boston for my first post-op appointment. I will keep people updated on what the doctor says if I'm not too tired after the appointment.
