The ReturnPosted: February 23, 2019 Filed under: Uncategorized 5 Comments
Y’all, I went back to work tonight, six weeks and one day post-op. I talked to my manager Monday about working short shifts today and tomorrow to make sure I can hang, so tonight I worked a little over four hours.
Fortunately we were pretty busy–yay for tax season! Everyone was so happy to have me back and so overprotective.
I had planned to take a bath when I got home, but I didn’t expect to get home so late, so I just took a shower and laid in bed for about half an hour until Ian got home.
I am so pleased with how I feel! As I hoped, I feel so much better after a few hours of constant activity. I took deliveries and did dishes and that’s about it. It’ll still be a long time before I make dough, since a full batch weighs nearly 80 pounds and I’m currently lifting in the less than 20 pounds range.
One step at a time
Good work and progress, April. Why 80 lbs of dough ?
That’s the amount they went with for whatever reason. 🤷♀️
Well done you! It must feel nice to be up and about.
It feels great! Plus the activity is only speeding up my recovery and improving my lung function.
