For those of you who were wondering . . . . . my foot operation went well last Thursday (other than blacking out on the nurse doing my IV line).
Since then I have alternated between being laid up on my bed or the living room couch.
You may be wondering what birds have to do with my foot op?
Well they've been keeping me company during my recovery. I made sure I opened the blinds and positioned everything so that I could enjoy a piece of nature even while being holed up inside.
The chickadees have me fixated at the moment. They keep singing and ruffling their feathers, so fun to watch.
I've been trying to learn the difference between the downy woodpeckers and the hairy woodpeckers. We appear to have both but it can be quite the challenge to tell them apart.
I love the way the woodpeckers use their tails as a form of support.
The suet was a popular feasting area but my husband had to move it because the raccoons would eat it all at night. With all that fat I'm sure they may be experiencing loose bowels for a while!
I haven't been getting on too well with my crutches and fell yesterday for the third time. It was a particularly bad fall and I came down hard on my bad foot, bending my toe in the process. I blacked out for a while before coming to and realizing that my toe was bleeding.
My husband (my hero) ended up coming home from work and taking me to the docs. Thankfully I hadn't broken anything but I had mangled one of the toes that had been operated. Even though the stitches had held it was gaping quite a bit.
The plan is to keep out of trouble, try walking on my foot more and then in a weeks time I'll be back at the docs to have the stitches out.
I can't wait to be fully mobile again and to get out and about with my camera.
