I was allowed to return to work this week only because my surgery was on my left foot so I could still drive and because my job basically requires me to sit at a desk all day. I still have to keep my foot elevated though (which often makes my leg fall asleep).
Yes, that's an exercise ball. I sit on it when my back hurts.
Also who knew that the fuzzy socks that I get at Christmas from different people each year would finally come in handy? I am not much of a sock person. I swear my feet get colder with socks than without. I much rather wrap my feet in a blanket than put socks on. These fuzzy, weird colored socks though? They're the only ones that have been able to fit comfortably over my bandage. Tomorrow I may rock the red & white striped ones.
