I took off my HUGE bandage this morning and was able to take a shower without a plastic bag over my hand. Progress! The incision looks pretty good, and I’ve got it covered with some gauze and tape.
Oh my, I can now type, hit the spacebar with my thumb, and not hit about half of the entire keyboard! Life is good if I can use a keyboard, LOL. So I got online this afternoon and commenced to do some consulting work. Ah, I was doing really well until my chair decided to roll out from under me. Ker-PLOP, I fell to the floor! OK, it was louder than a standard, run-of-the-mill ker-PLOP. It was probably more like a ker-BOOM. And I added some verbal commentary for good measure and emphasis. Of course.
Thankfully, I fell cleanly on my ample backside and didn’t mess up my bionic knee or any other appendage while I was ker-PLOPping. Dear hubby helped me get back up and quickly loaned me his office chair (which is not possessed with an unsettling mean streak). The offending chair is my sewing chair, with no arms and a small base with rollers. It was never meant to serve as an office chair. But I put it into temporary use while I’ve had the extra desk and work computer set up.
The stupid chair is going to be replaced. Now I’m sore all over!
