August 8, 2010 - Janet DelTurco

Just as I started to blog with some regularity, I get side-lined with tendon reconstruction on my right ankle, and out of the mood for doing anything constructive. I had the surgery July 21, and am recovering, although more slowly than I would like. I can get out of bed at least, and even put the foot to the ground, although that is a painful process. I spend a lot of time deciding whether it is worth the effort to go into the kitchen for some lemonade, or if it is better to sit there thirsty until some kind soul comes by. My dog Penny was boarded at the vet's for two weeks, and now she is home with me and good company. She, like the garden, gets more attention than when I am in good health I believe. My gardening friends have rallied round, and things seem to be OK out there as far as I can see from various windows. I have learned a lot about how to be handicapped. 1.You must think and plan ahead about what you want to do next. 2.Be patient...still working on that. 3.Friends and family are everything and should be appreciated. 4.Naps are good. 5.TV is for the most part mindless drivel. 6.A good doctor is worth more than gold.
