Today I was supposed to have my two week follow up/xray appt. They called early in the morning to say the Doctor was not going to be in and asked to reschedule to Friday. So now I will have the appointment Friday morning.
Yesterday was pretty much a boring day. I stayed home all day and played computer games and chatted online. I also went on a walk down Gunn road. Not that safe but it is the closest to nature that I could get without going into the biting fly infested bear creek park.
Today I went to the village with Mom and Sarah. We went to Bravo and I just got a house salad. It is pretty good, it is a chopped salad with Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Bacon, Wonton Strips and a creamy kind of like ranch dressing. I always get the dressing on the side, because I don't like that much of it. After that we walked around a little and had Starbucks. I had a gift card from my dad and so I treated. We walked around a little. My neck muscles get tired and sore VERY quickly. It rotates from side to side which muscles are painful. By the end of the day they are all painful! I think it is good for me to get out and walk a bit because it helps condition them. I need them to get strong quickly! I can't travel that much because the bumps in the road hurt a lot, also if the car gets smashed I would probably have perminant damage and have to have more surgery. I have to wait until the bone grows more.
I am still not aloud to drive :( It may be for the better anyway. I can't really turn my head at all. Although I couldn't really turn it before surgery anyway.
After the village I came home and did my usual online stuff. Then I walked around the block. It was so Sunny, the spots of shade were a blessing. I may try to do my walk earlier in the morning so it is not as hot.
I am still taking pain medication and or muscle relaxers at night, not during the day except some times in the evening. It really hurts to lay down in bed unless I take them. It only helps a little, but enough to be able to get a decent nights rest, that is importiant for healing.
I have been kind of worried today about when I am going back to work. I know that is atleast a month away so not to worry so much. I am looking at august 10th or 17th. I think I told my boss august 3rd. The extra weeks would really help and I would still get paid from the insurance company. I will see what the doctor says on Friday about my healing progress.
My friend/coworker Michelle is going to come over tomorrow. I wonder what we will do. There is not much to do except go on a walk and talk. Usually I like ice skating with her but of course we won't be doing that!! At least not for a while.
I always see people biking by and wish it was me. I also see hockey and wish it was me. I see people running and wish it was me. I see people doing a lot of things and I wish I could physically do it. It is depressing but I know I can do a lot more than other people so I shouldn't be complaining. Like walking. Lots of people with they could walk, or see, or hear. I hope by next summer I will be biking again and doing fun things like that.
