1 week post operation
Well one week has come, and gone, and I have gone through a lot of changes. The past couple of days have been a little rough. I am having muscle cramping at the amputation site, they don't last long but, it is incredibly painful while it is going on. The cast splint is driving me bonkers; it itches, I sweat, and it itches more. I have been tapping on it to try and get it to calm down. There is a lot of nerve tingling and the ghost stuff going on.
It has been mentally trying. This is what I call the dark days. I knew they were coming, I have gone through it before. The nerves, cast, and lack of mobility start to weigh heavy. It has been incredibly tough to get good sleep, but through it all I know that this part is almost over. Hell, a week as already come and gone. So there has been some dark...without dark you never know the light. Time for the light!
So Jared, Erik, & Tucker surprised me today with a new trophy for our fantasy football league, and I have to say it's pretty freakin awesome!
What can I say, I love it! Now I have to fight to keep it!!!!
Thank you to Mom and David for bringing my fathers scooter over, and to Kevin and Spike for setting me up with the chair. All my friends and family that have brought food, stopped in, called, texted, etc. etc. ect. thank you again. One more week, and I am out of the splint, and into the shrinkers. Can't wait. I know this post is more about the struggle, but know I am holding stead fast. I am in great spirits, and still looking forward. Keep taking it Day by Day!
