Back To Life, Back To Reality...

Last night I was slept like a baby.

Waking up every hour and crying.


Thank you, I will be here all week, don't forget to try the veal.

I'm the type of sleeper that likes to spread out on a bed and I move all over the place. So slap a brace on me and when i'm forced to lie on my back all night with my leg still in pain from the surgery equals little sleep for me.

My leg is very sore this morning and the wounds still sting a bit. Fortunately, my ligaments and tendons are fine - so getting around is a bit easier on my crutches. Unlike last week when my leg blew up and the slightest bend would wrack my body in pain.

I was able to make myself breakfast fairly easily. Today I had one of my poor-irish meals from Philly:

Cream of Chicken on Toast.

1 Can of Cream of Chicken, heated up with 1/2 can of water.
8 slices of toast (Pepperidge Farm white bread).

Pour the cream of chicken on each slice, stacking it up vertically and viola! You have the infamous "Cream of Chicken on Toast" breakfast which I grew up on.

The Shop Rite online delivery came thru for me. They were at my apartment by 8:30pm last night. I ordered the food at 6pm, so I don't think that was so bad for them to take 2 1/2 hours - yet they even wrote me a note saying "Sorry we were late" and gave me $5 back off the delivery charge! I took the $5 and tipped the delivery guy with it.

So far everything I ordered is there, and they did a great job. I certainly can see myself using them quite a few times over the next 6 weeks, since I will be on crutches and can't put any weight on my leg.

Today I will spend the day doing what I normally do. Playing World of Warcraft and watch whatever is on my Tivo.

Thanks again for all the emails and kind words over the last couple of days, the help and outpouring of assistance has been much appreciated.
