My T came to my home today~

Posted by LadyBug on November 13, 2006, at 15:54:33

Some of you know that I had some two surgeries during the last 3 weeks. I was in the hospital for 13 days, forever it seemed. My T came to visit me in the hospital which I thought was very thoughtful of her. She brought me a card and a really cute magnet. They were changing my bandage when she came. She asked if she should leave the room, I said it was her choice. She stayed. Now that I'm home, she offered to come to my home to visit me. I let her, heck, I can't drive for 6 weeks and I have at least 3 1/2 weeks more to go. She came today! We sat at my kitchen table since it is easier for me to get up from those chairs. I got her a glass of ice water and I spilled some on the floor. She got a paper towel and wiped it up so I wouldn't fall. We had a nice visit and it felt ok to have her here. She took today off so I thought it was really nice of her to take the time to drive out. It's at least 30 min. each way. She stayed for about 45 min. I told her my daughter would be willing to dive me to see her next time we see each other. I told her to charge me for today, but she said, no, this is just a visit. I feel so lucky to have such a caring Therapist. It made my day!! I was having a meltdown this morning as everything I do is such an effort. It's all I can do to get in my shower and get out, dress, do my hair etc. I had both of my knees replaced. It's the most paiful thing I've ever gone through in my life. I'm glad I did it but the recovery has been painful and hard. I have a physical therapist coming to my home 3 days a week and a nurse is supposed to come 2 days a week.
I made my T a Thank You card on my computer. She appreciated it and didn't make it an issue like she would have normally. Thank goodness. I've been on some heavy pain meds and I left her some goofy messages. She has a good sence of humor thank goodness.
How may of you would like your T to visit you under these circumstances? I didn't even think twice about it. I was fine with it. I know her home is much better than mine, but mine is clean and un-cluttered, the way I like it. I felt good having her here even for a short time. It went fast and now I can't wait to see her again.
I'm reading on here everyday, but don't feel like I have the energy to reply, plus the drugs make me feel like I'm in the clouds. So my mind isn't thinking the way it does normally.
I'm glad I could share this with you guys. You understand. My younger daughter was furious at me for letting her come here. She hates my T. but no one was home. She's going out of town next week for Thanksgiving. So I will probably see her the week after that.
This is the hardest thing I've ever gone through. There's times when I just want my old life back. I want to feel normal, I want to just do normal things. I want to get off the pain meds and be able to think clearly.
Sorry to ramble, it's the meds. I talk a lot!
Take care everyone. You are the best babbler's ever.
