I am trying to think of a way to celebrate Valentine's Day without food. 65MD and I have made it a bit of a tradition to go to one particular Italian restaurant for special treats. We are both doing so well right now with our individual plans that we agreed that we could skip that. However, I don't want to skip celebrating our relationship. I'd really like to just stay home, but do something incredibly special for him. Any ideas? He took such good care of me while I was recovering from surgery, that he deserves to be celebrated.
Speaking of surgery, we decided to take a wait and see stance with my left hip for now. The shot has given me some relief. 65MD doesn't think I am ready emotionally and the doctor doesn't think I'm ready physically. So, it will probably be a few more months before we address the issue again. That is, unless it starts hurting badly.
I took Staci's suggestion and read back through some of the posts I did when I was first home from the hospital. I don't know how any one understood most of it! There were typos and disjointed sentences. It makes me appreciate all of my readers that much more.
Reading back through those posts did confirm that I have improved a lot. It also confirmed that I need to get mentally and physically tough before going through that again. I am working on both. I dug out my pre-op manual and have been doing those exercises along with the post-op therapy. Between those and weight loss, I'll be in much better shape this time, whenever that comes.
