I have done nothing today.
The calf is still sore from Sunday
so I am taking another complete rest day. Tomorrow I will walk at the very least, run if I can, or maybe go to the gym and bike. I need an outlet!!!
My dad's knee replacement went well Tuesday. He came home yesterday and so far I've been making sure he gets his meds on time to stay ahead of the pain and that he's doing his home exercises and icing appropriately. He goes to his first PT appointment tomorrow. He is already walking much better/faster with a walker now than he was before surgery! He's in pain, but it seems to be managed with the meds, and I think he is making great progress. Yay medical science!
My mom is making things difficult though.
She is mad or jealous or ??? that my dad can do things that she couldn't do immediately after her hip surgery last year, so she's taking it out on him, which isn't helpful.
So I am trying to mitigate that without pissing her off (if mom's not happy, ain't nobody happy) in addition to taking care of my dad. Mom got mad that I was getting up in the middle of the night to give Dad his meds on schedule, and I told her we did that with her too. She didn't remember that, which is why she got mad, but then somehow she was still mad that I was doing it.
She was also mad at my dad for "showing off" that he could put his own socks and shoes on before he left the hospital yesterday.
If I survive these next few days I should be up for sainthood.
