10 days post surgery

I went back into the office today for the morning. It was quite the adventure. It took me over an hour just to get showered, dressed and ready. By the time I did all that, I was ready to go back to bed!!! But I went to the office, felt my normal self-cursing the stupid drivers on the road :) Just kidding! But I haven't had to deal with the stupid drivers in 10 days so it wasn't very pleasant.

But, getting into the office was excellent. I had a couple of meetings, got some work done and came home at lunch. Man, I was tired when I was on my way home, so much so that I thought I was going to pass out while I was driving home. I don't even remember ever feeling like that. Despite that, I've had a great day.

Day 10 recap:
1. allowed to remove the bandages put on my foot on Friday
2. my incision is 100% closed
3. today is the first day allowed to take a shower
4. I've got tons of dry skin on my foot from being bandaged for 10 days - amazing how much skin can die in such a short time. - washing my foot felt so good :)
5. went to work for half day
6. propped my foot up on my upside down garbage can and a pillow :)
7. came home and propped up/iced down and kept working
8. been relaxing, working rest of the day

More tomorrow in the recovery adventure.
