So, the progression through recovery, in pictures:
In the recovery room:
What surprises me is that years ago, I spent almost ten weeks at home, healing from a wrist reconstruction and in that time, I plowed through about fifteen books and two video courses (Management principles and Intro to Marketing), that led to me getting CLEP exam credit for two college courses.
I thought I was going to spend soooo much time working on schoolwork, and instead, I'm finding it's really hard to read for long periods of time. It takes time, and I'm thankful I only have two courses this semester!
We'll see what the week brings...
