Scarlett11 : I hope your foot continues to heal! Anti inflammatories definitely slow bone healing so good call cutting them out! I had a revision of a joint fusion in my foot a few years ago and my doctor at the time told me no ibuprofen, aleve, allergy meds, sodas, etc for 18 months! Best of luck to you!!

LittleDove : I’m so sorry to hear this, how INCREDIBLY frustrating! I’m so sorry bee!
Regarding the TV suggestions – I suggest watching the full run of Parks & Rec (it’s on Netflix). As far as I’m concerned it’s the funniest series of TV ever made, each character is better than the next. I was recently down for the count with an injury for a few months and this was my go-to. I was injured, sad, and scared and I just wanted to watch something funny and light where no one gets hurt, no one dies, and no one is in peril. This show was the ticket and it has like 7 seasons so it took a long time to get through it! Even though I’d already seen many episodes it was awesome to watch the whole thing.
Regarding ideas for your Darling Husband – I’m not sure what kinds of things make him feel appreciated and what your ability level is like right now, so here is a smattering of ideas.
- handmake him a cutesy card and mail it to him at work
- make him a special dinner along with his favorite drinks
- invite a group of his buddies over for a night of gaming or football watching or D&D or whatever they like to do
- you could plan a date to a location where they rent wheelchairs (zoo?) so that you can get out of the house
- send him an email with the 25 ways he’s the greatest husband
But it’s really about what your Darling Husband likes. Do you know his “love langugage”? (gag at the term, but it’s actually a pretty useful theory)

cbgg : Thank you for your suggestions! I LOVE Parks and Rec and will definitely be rewatching some episodes of it stat! I totally totally agree with you about wanting something funny and light right now. Darling Husband and I were in the middle of Walking Dead and Peaky Blinders when I found out I had to have this past surgery and we haven’t watched one episode of either since that dr. appt. Great suggestions for DH- we actually own a wheelchair so I will start thinking of some activities that get us out of the house for fun purposes- maybe the aquarium to beat the 100+ temps outside hah!

Well, just to update:
Today the doc said it was time to pull the trigger on my next surgery. In about two weeks it’s go time. Hopefully get me back on my feet (or at least out of bed). I have been torpedoing through all y’all’s TV recommendations haha so if anyone has additional suggestions, please let me know!
For Darling Husband, I’ve planned a few wheelchair accessible dates that we’ve gone on and we’re taking a little mini trip this weekend (he knows where we’re going but not what we’re doing! It’s in a different state and one of those workshops where they provide the power tools and wood stain and you can cut/sand/stain/paint wooden signs using their templates!) But the thing he’s probably appreciated most is I’ve trained our new puppy to sit, wait, shake, lay down, and walk besides the wheelchair. It’s been easy (and adorable) for me to do sitting down and Darling Husband is in heaven that our little guy is so much easier for him to deal with.
