Home Again

I'm back. My Doctor did what he had to do and, since I was out anyway, revised my scar (with my prior permission) so it will be a little prettier and less visible and should pull a little less then it was. Once the local wears off, my face should feel like it did right after the accident and by next week I should be back to where I was when I walked in this morning. After that, we will see.

Right now I am a little loopy because once the local started to wear off (and it was wearing off on my eye while I was still there) I decided not to be a hero and took the strong stuff. But only one. Love drug directions that say "one or two." Not! I will also not pass any drug tests this week. One more was prescribed today since the work was a bit more extensive then expected. Just call me Steroid Girl.

So, now I am spending the rest of the day half blog surfing, half dozing and half doing not much of anything. Nope, no desire to pick up my knitting needles even though Mike was nice enough to hand me my sock as he helped to make my little nest here on the couch.

I will play it smart and skip work tomorrow though I will take the kids up to school as usual -- probably by subway or cab instead of driving. Then back home to dodge my cleaning lady all day. I'm also taking a half-day on Thursday since I already have to go in late due to a publishing party at Little Squid's school and then I have to pick him up after school due to a lack of chaperonage this week due to his escort's final exams. Works for me. I won't lose an entire day from my sick bank and I get a leg up on Friday when I am theoretically in charge for the day.

Oh, and I got clearance to ride in the 5-Boro Bike tour this weekend as long as I take it slow. Woo Hoo! I am hoping to find Debby, and Ina and their spouses. Just remember ladies, we Squid ride as a pack (or at least 2-by-2) and our slowest rider may very well be me and not Little Squid this time. *g* No offense taken if you say a quick "hi" and ride on. We did a nice pace during the Century but I don't want to jinx anything here.

Thank you so much for checking in, sweetie. I hope you're able to get some rest while you can. *hugs*

Yay, you're home! Get all the rest you can. I truly believe that we can wear ourselves out by thinking and I'll bet you've been doing a lot of it lately. Glad to hear you got the ok for the bike ride. See you have to rest up for that! Smart move staying home tomorrow. Things heal better when we are rested. Truth! Love ya!

So glad to hear you are home and on the other side of the procedures. I hope you are feeling pretty good all things considered, and not in too much pain.

Don't worry about going slowly for Five Boro -- I will be too. I haven't had a lot of time to ride lately, and I notice you have already done a century. That is my end-of-summer goal; my pace is nowhere near where I'd like it to be yet. Besides, we want to stop and take photos and play tourist. :)

Sarah of Knittin Kitten and her husband are coming with us to the city, so you'll probably find us together. Do we take knitting for when we're waiting for the ride to start? :)

Rest and take care of yourself..thanks for letting us know that you are ok.

I hope you are feeling better now! We will try to spot you in the crowds at the 5 Boro Ride. I will be on a green mtn bike and Jeff will be on a silver one, both Diamondback brand. We'll be riding with Debby and Chris. I'm still trying to decide what to wear to be warm or cool enough for the day! I'm sure we will be riding slowly to see all the city views. This will be our first bike ride in NYC!
