Saturday - 4 days post surgery
My Sister Alice (far right with white shirt and green beads) is staying with me until tomorrow when she'll be flying back to Biloxi, MS. She had made plans to celebrate St Patrick's day with a couple of friends of hers in the area. As you can see, I didn't know that she was going to invite them over for a few minutes so they could consolidate cars. Had I known I might (just might) have put on my green pajamas. Especially because Sharon (2nd from right with green shirt and green beads) gave me a little mutated chicken / bunny critter to help me feel better.
Mutated Chicken / Bunny Critter
On Sunday I decided to venture out of the house and go to the local Borders Book Store. As you can hopefully see from the below photo, the bruising down my neck has gotten a very nice shade of yellow.
Sunday - 5 days post surgery
Walking around Borders was quite uneventful. Even the little kids didn't stop and stare too much when they saw me ... I'll have to try harder when I go to the grocery store next week. Just like a couple of days ago, however, I started feeling the swelling pick up almost as soon as I walked out the door. I didn't feel poorly ... just tired out awful quickly. Luckily I'll be off work until Thursday, 29 March so I can work on getting my stamina back up.
