Jim being able to drive again. Now we can go those places that have small parking lots (like the grocery store) and I don’t have to worry about whether I can get the truck into a parking spot.
Aunt Happy’s residence has a very small parking lot so the first place we went was to visit her. She’s still recovering from her eye surgery but almost done with doctor visits. A virus hit their living complex and they were under quarantine for a week. Happy stayed in her room and had her meals brought to her so she escaped being sick. Everybody seems to be feeling okay now.
After leaving Happy’s, we went to visit my sister for a few minutes and then out to Old Chicago. Jim had a craving for pizza. And it really did a number on his blood sugar. So no more pizza for several months.
Jim felt really good but very tired when we finally got home. He’s still taking naps every day and Scooter just loves it. We went to Walmart this morning and he was able to walk all through the store and out to the truck without limping and pain. He could not do that before surgery. He and Scooter take walks a couple of times a day and he doesn’t have any pain.
The incision is still sore and uncomfortable, but I figure that feeling will last for six months or more. In fact, I figure it will be a year before he really is back to total recovery. As long as there’s no pain, we don’t care.
Doctor bills are starting to come in and I’ll be curious to see how much Jim’s surgery actually cost us.
