I have a friend who is in her late 70s. She’s known for doing the unexpected. I got an email from her the other day and she said she’s been recovering from a knee injury she suffered while line dancing. Line dancing! I can imagine her doing it too. She probably leaves much younger people in the dust. I told her about Lion’s shoulder and she said she’s known many older people who’ve had the surgery. The biggest thing is to follow the physical therapy even beyond the point you feel healed, otherwise you can get into trouble. One more vote in the Lion-should-have-the-surgery column.
We continue to get ready for his surgery. We’re taking care of things that need to be done before he becomes in-valid, as he likes to pronounce it. We still have a ways to go but we’ll be ready. And, along the way, I’m finding projects that I can do while I’m home taking care of him. Those things that you wish you had time for. Well, I may actually have time for them.
Lion mentioned sex after surgery. As long as we protect his shoulder, he should be good to go. The issue, of course, is that the pain pills also make Mr. Weenie groggy. Personally, I think sex will be the last thing on his mind for at least the first week. But I never know. Like my friend, Lion is known for doing the unexpected.
The other night I remembered to spank Lion for not losing weight. He gained .8 pounds so he got 8 not-so-terrible swats. They hurt, but not as much as they should have. I took it easy on him on purpose. He’d been dreading it all day. I gained weight too so I figured I didn’t have a leg to stand on. Of course, I’m in charge so there’s that. We just need to jump back on the diet bandwagon and start exercising too. That will save Lion’s butt.
