Skyfall II

Well, the L&T was operated on Tuesday to better repair the damage caused by her fall. Major pain somewhat exorcised by oxycodone has followed. But the new "appliance" on her arm that replaced the original cast is smaller, but not lighter. The orthopedic surgeon worried that there was going to be a problem with arthritis in her finger and elbow joints if she didn't keep them exercised and the new setup allows that.
The followup appointment is set for December 27th, the day after she had planned to leave to celebrate Christmas with SIL, the Dotter and Sleezix. Undeterred, she now plans to leave right after the appointment. Hopefully she will feel like traveling. I shudder to think of the alternative.
On the upside, she seems to enjoy my cooking. But I really hate doing dishes. It is what it is - necessary. However, tonight is the Post Christmas Party, so she will get a break.

These six weeks canna pass too quickly for me - or her either....

Take good care of her, she's worth it. (And paybacks are hell if you don't, and later need her to return the favor!)
