Surgery is over

Surgery on my broken ankle happened Wednesday. I'm still recovering because I didn't know that stitches would hurt like crazy. And my toes are turning purple. Luckily that's my favorite color.

For the surgery they gave me a popliteal nerve block. That was nifty: the anesthetist stuck a needle in the back of my knee and my leg went bye-bye. They also gave me a sedative to put me to sleep. Unfortunately, I began waking up in the middle of surgery and they had to use a stronger narcotic to knock me back out. The result: severe nausea for the rest of the day.

Happily, that's over now, and I'm just dealing with the post-op pain. Stitches suck.

Be well, soon.

In the meantime, I'm giving you my imaginatory clown for your enjoyment. He'll keep your interest up in a few days. Then you should consider changing him with a magical magician or something.

Take care.
James

Clowns are good. I like clowns. And how 'bout a magical magician that can heal stitches? That would be great. I'm not asking for much, just the stitches. :-)

Haha.

I think I could arrange something like that, yes. :P

(And it is really annoying I don't get notificated at replies on blogspot . . .)
