Still some major swelling and bruising. Which is most likely normal after the surgery and trauma to the surrounding area of my leg. The scar is much longer than last time. There was more work involved with removing different layers of tissue (skin down to muscle).

Also, I may have done too much on Saturday moving around. Mainly going up and down the stairs on two different occasions. Which I need to avoid and keep to a minimum. Note the earlier post about excessive stair climbing. I failed to consider this part of that example, but I believe it fits in perfectly. I dd enjoy getting out of the apartment though.

I am moving around but it does hurt with each step I do take. Which I consider the normal part of the healing process after surgery. Like my previous surgeries, I do have to keep moving around despite pain and discomfort. It really is not that bad just don’t like feeling this way.  I’ll have to continue to rest and realize that I can’t get up and move around in this state.

I know recovery will take time. I will take each day as it comes. I know God has a plan, and even this is part of it all.

Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man plans his way but the Lord establishes his steps.

1 Chronicles 16:34 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

God has been working in my life always, and I will continue to trust Him.
