Coming Back Alive...

Holy Toledo~!  Did I do a number on myself!!
I was released from the rehab facility late yesterday afternoon.  I still have the 20 lb block of cement on my leg, and still am not allowed to put any weight on it.........so I am pretty much stuck in one spot.  
Thank you to all of you that left such wonderful comments and support......they were very helpful.....and thank you so much to Bri for keeping everything running so smoothly.  You are AWESOME~!
Hopefully I will feel up to get creating once again ASAP~!

Paulette

So glad to hear you are now at home and getting the rest you need for a full & quick recovery. Always better to heal at home. Take care and welcome back.

Photomama said...

so glad you are home - make sure you do everything the physical therapist tells you to do - 1. Rest and 2. whatever exercises you will have to do

Tale your time and allow the healing to begin.

Maxine D said...

Great to 'see' you here Paulette :-). You really did make a proper job of your ankle - I hope you get a fibreglass cast soon - they are much lighter (I speak from experience).
Bri has been brilliant in keeping us updated.
Blessings
Maxine

Oh Paulette- I am so sorry to hear about our fall and subsequent stay in rehab! I was able to pop in and check in on your status- so glad to hear you are finally home. Bless you- keeping you in prayers for patience and that you have very little pain!

So good to see you blogging again! Glad to hear all is coming along well for you. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts again. Bri did a great job for you while you were gone but you were missed. My day was somewhat off kilter because Paulette wasn't around with the art work she so generously shares.

There's nothing like being at home! I'm sure you're as happy to be there as we are to see you blogging again. But don't overdue it... take care to do exactly as doctor's have ordered so you'll not only mend quickly, but properly as well. Glad to see you back :)

Maryann Laursen said...

WOW welcome home Paulette, it´s so great to see, that you´re actually home again, and just that most times get us to heal even faster then, so I hope, that´s the case for you as well. Don´t over do anything at all, but just do as the doctors have told you to, and don´t worry too much about anything here, as we´re all taken sooo good care of by Bri, she´s been wonderful, that´s for sure.
Have a wonderful day and just care about getting well now and look after yourself okay?
Biiiiiiiiiiiiig healing hugs from here.

April Rogers said...

Welcome home Paulette! I'm so glad to hear you are doing a bit better. Hope your leg mends well and fast and you don't have any more trips that include any pain. Your DD is a keeper for sure. Like mother like daughter. Thanks to both of you for everything!
xoxo Nana

Heidi Brawley said...

It is really Great news to hear from you doll!!! Sending prayers and healing drool to you!!! hugs,Heidi

Craftdee said...

Glad to hear you're home Paulette, now your recovery can begin in earnest... of course as you feel better it's going to get harder to be patient - write yourself a note today about something you did that you felt was an achievement then you can refer to it in a few weeks when you think your progress has stalled - you'll be amazed at how far you've gone. Bri is a real credit to you, such a sweet soul (her concern for the lady you met in rehab with her toy pig touched me deeply) and her dedication to keeping your blog going for you was impressive, thanks to her. Great to see you back though, Donna

Great to see you are home Paulette and please do take it slow and easy. It will take some time,but I am sure you will heal totally. Bug hugs from acros the pond xx

scrappindede said...

So glad you are home and able to do something enjoyable! I feel your pain! I had foot surgery 4 weeks ago...I have 3 more weeks on the scooter and 4 more weeks in the boot. But I can sit at my scrap table and have fun (which is where my computer is also!) I've prayed for you since your fall...be good so you will heal properly!

hoptownracer1 said...

So happy you are home! Hope you heal quickly and feel better very soon! (((HUGS!)))

jayleigh3 said...

Oh my goodness! And here i was worried about the fires in CA, so i popped over to check on you - and what do i learn? YOU are encased in cement - well, not YOU totally, but a lower extremity! Yikes! You've been in my prayers because of the fires, but i am sorry i didn't know about your hospital stay. Since i don't make cards, i don't come here as frequently as the cardmakers do, but you are often in my thoughts. So, i'll add prayers for rapid healing and for courage to cope with the cast.

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

So happy to hear that you are at home and on the mend. I'm sure you are in for a heap of frustration as you work through at getting yourself back into working condition but I'm also sure it will be eased being surrounded by your own things and of course family and friends. Glad you are back! Bri did a great job in your absence, you're lucky to have her!

Hugs and healing wishes,
Lisa

Charlene said...

Welcome back Paulette...we're sure happy to see you back again. Your darling daughter did a marvelous job at filling in for you though...she is totally awesome. Hopefully you won't have to have the extra cement for too terribly long.

Hugs ~ Charlene
