Because of concerns that I had other complications with my bones including possible bone cancer or poor bone density, the WRMC staff decided after much discussion to transfer me to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill late Sunday night. After surgery on Monday, April 18th, I was home on Tuesday evening with 3 bolts and a rod in my leg and according to the doctor super strong healthy bones. The UNC doc actually called me a super star! Everyone was amazed that I was up and walking with a walker just one day after such a huge surgery. I am blessed to be mobile even with a walker and expected to be back on my feet within 3 weeks.
It is Tuesday? Being at home all the time I lose track of the days, however last night I ventured out with my family to Subway with my walker. I am pain medicine free and feeling good! I am hoping to be at the NW shop for a few hours a day by the end of the week with my walker. I will just be visiting to see everyone and promised my family I will sit while I am there. It will be good to be back even if it is for a few hours.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I will certainly need them. I am not one to sit still, so I am struggling with the thoughts of probably another week at least using a walker. I will certainly miss everyone. ~ Angela
