Healing up

All went well this morning. I had to preach sitting down, but it didn't feel unnatural.

By the time the service was over, though, my painkillers were wearing off, so it was time for more. After Sunday school, I walked home and was amazed at how well my leg was doing. I could put full weight on it and everything (as long as I didn't stretch it too far or twist on it or do unexpected things with it).

I'm resting throughout the afternoon now. I imagine the leg'll stiffen up a bit while I lol around with Sassy on the couch, but overall, I'm quite pleased with how things are going.

Still, I can't drive as long as I'm taking high doses of painkillers, and even if I can drive, I don't know yet about driving to Tennessee on Tuesday. One thing at a time: I'll try driving tomorrow afternoon and see how it goes.

I'm also going to try and get in to see my GP tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Venturers went hiking this afternoon without me. *sniff* Maybe that'll be a good thing -- a point of organizational maturity and all. Still, I'd rather be out hiking than flying this couch.

Oh, well. Another day, another green, blue, and electric yellow dollar, as the Firesign Theater used to say.
