But I'm sure tomorrow it will be better. It's supposed to rain here tomorrow so that's perfect stamping weather!!
Oh Ms. Vicki! It's easy to be fooled by how you "feel" so soon after neck surgery. My fusion was in 2001, and it was such a relief that I, too, thought I was surely healing fast & quickly! So, park the paint brush & other such grand ideas until the Doc gives the "alls-clear".
Wow! You're driving soon, too! Embrace the brace til the healing is complete. ((((hugs))))
