There was some relief today. The staples came out! The nurse said that the incision is healing beautifully, and if I take care of myself, there should be minimal scaring. She also said that I looked like I was getting around well for being only two weeks post op. She also reminded me to not limp, and to make every effort to walk as normally as possible, even if it is slow at first. After that appointment, two of my coworkers took me out to lunch. This was the first time in a while I was able to actually style my hair and put on make-up. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but I'm sure I've looked like death warmed over for the past two weeks.
My husband and I are attending the marathon expo tomorrow. He just now called and asked about going to it, but by the time we get there and find parking, it will be over. There's no need to rush since we still have another day.
It looks like we're going to have a nice day for the marathon, with predicted highs in the 60's - and that will be nice for the runners.
