A Weekend Later: Up and About

by Ken Houghton

Many thanks to those (Tom, Drek, several via e-mail, etc.) who offered best wishes.

All has worked out as well or better than anyone expected. Shira is up, less in pain (and it's a different type of pain; more one that can be treated with Advil/Alleve than one requiring Percocet or similar Fed-restricted "controlled substances"), and walking well enough. (She's describing the procedure as more like arthroscopic surgery, where you are expected to get up and try to get the area back into shape.)

So we are bright and cheerful, and I'm not going to rant about the Continuing Narrative Tragedy of COBRA Insurance and the Pharmaceutical Industry. Yet.

Labels: , ,

Glad to hear it's going well -- being able to get relief from OTC NSAIDs at this point sounds like a huge improvement.
Someone—not me—described her Percocet intake during the few days before surgery as "celebrity level."

She's been free and clear since Friday.
