I stacked a few books next to my “sick bed” during one of the less painful moments today and I tried reading some blogs. But I will admit that the pain meds…and pain…make it difficult to focus…and to stay awake. Not beating myself up, though; it’s not even 72 hours since surgery. The good news is that I can make a fist with my right hand and it’s looking like my distal nerve (the one the allows you to lift your fingers and wrist) may not have been permanently damaged. This bodes well!
