I’m incredibly bored. Almost to the point where I want to do something to cause trouble. But I won’t do that – I have a couple of things I have to do before I go to bed tonight.
Part of the reason for my boredom is that Martha is working tonight until 11:30PM. I did get to see her, though, as I brought her dinner. And it was nice to spend a few minutes with her. Made the evening a little less difficult.
I saw the surgeon this afternoon. It was the visit before surgery. He had another look at the wound, and we talked at length about rehab versus skilled nursing. And he went for it – I wasn’t sure he would, but Martha went with me to the appointment and she did most of the talking. She is much better at selling ideas like this than I am; I likely would have tried to stuff it down his throat, and I would have lost. But she was able to convince him that this is the right thing to do. At the very least I should be able to keep from becoming de-conditioned, and I’ll be able to do this by going to the gym in the rehab facility every day to work my upper body.
That is what I would like to do. Whether or not this all flies remains to be seen.
Now for the things I have to do… I have to wash the kitchen floor and vacuum the carpet in the living room. It shouldn’t take long, but I’ve been putting it off. Procrastinating. Something I am really good at sometimes.
Tomorrow I have to replace our mailbox. It was a victim of the snow plows during the winter. So it gets replaced.
