Day 20---Yum

Well, today is day 20 since my surgery.  I'm feeling really well, getting around without the cane some of the time, but still a little limp.  PT said not to walk without the cane until the limp is completely gone, but, know how that goes.  Gotta "do it my way".  Not really, it's just that grabbing the cane to take two steps across the kitchen seems kind of silly.  And then there are the times when I get up and take off and then remember that I should have grabbed the cane, but, oh well, I'm almost where I want to go, so I just keep going.

I can do almost everything I want/need to do, except put on my left sock and shoe.  I'm supposed to wait 12 weeks before I actually do that action--bending over that far on my left side.  And I'm two days shy of three weeks right now.  Nine weeks to go until I can/should do that! Yikes.  But I WILL OBEY.  I want to get well and if that's what it's going to take, then so be it.  Once I'm in Hawaii I'll be wearing flip-flops most of the time anyway...

Anyway....a few days ago I found this yummy sounding recipe for Butter-Cream Scones on a blog.  They sounded soooooo good, and I really love scones.  So I made sure I had all the ingredients (the only thing I didn't have was heavy cream) and thought I would whip these up some day.  "Some day" didn't happen until today.

I basically just took them out of the oven, so I haven't tasted them yet.  And dinner is in a short time. I will wait, as difficult as it will be, to have one as my after-dinner treat.  I'm hoping they taste as good as they look.

Oooh...they do look yummy! Hope they did taste as good as they looked! :-)

Glad to hear how well you feel and how good you're getting around. That's pretty amazing considering your surgery was only 20 days ago! :-)
