Slowly getting my life back
The first 2 weeks, my husband helped in my recovery. He was great. He cooked, cleaned did the laundry. After that, I started doing a little more MAINLY because I was bored. Anyway, any movement is helping me get back into the swing of things. I am so grateful for him. He never whined or complained like my first husband would do. He still helps me in the evening and always asks me if there is anything he can help me with.
About the 3rd week, he started on a backyard project - building a retaining wall and totally redoing our waterfall and pond that my father built. It needed some attention. I've enjoyed watching the process. Still not done yet - He goes back to work July 1.
All in all, I can do almost everything within reason. I can even push down on the emergency brake, in the van. One click.
Still not power walking. I haven't gone swimming yet. I admit I am anxious. I went to Physical therapy on Monday and they rescheduled me for July 8, due to a Medicare issue with the other PT who had not released me yet in time for Medicare to pick it up. So all of this improvement - the bending of my knee and all the things I can do, is just with walking and exercises the other PT gave me to do. Not bad. But I am hoping for GREAT THINGS after July 8.
I will miss my husband's company when he goes back to work. At least now, I got a little glimpse of what it will be like when he retires. We didn't kill each other. He likes to keep busy and with the exception of a few petty things, I totally enjoyed his time off.
So now, we wait to hear back from CALPERS (CalPERS: California Public Employees' Retirement System) as to what the amounts would be if he retires in Dec of this year. He was verbally told, there was no difference in pay if he retired in Jan 2020 or Dec 2019.
PS. During this time, our pond fish Sharky and Spot are hanging out in a crowded aquarium because they are BIG.
