I’m now in what is considered the “recovery” mode of the consequence of rolling my car and having emergency surgery to remove my spleen.
Recovery is an interesting thing to consider. I have 30 staples in my stomach holding together an incision that is just a hair over 8 inches long. It’s difficult to function when you are worried you are going to pop a staple at any cough, laugh, bend, reach or stretch. I have decided that I won’t really start recovering until the staples are gone – which, with any luck, will be Tuesday.
The other challenge of having been a bit out of commission is the catch-up – particularly with emails, texts, voicemails, etc. There is something a bit daunting about firing up outlook and seeing 3187 unread emails. Good grief.
So, if you have called, texted or emailed me in the last couple weeks – hang tight, I’ll try to get to you!
So much for “taking it easy.”
