Road to Recovery

It's been two weeks since my surgery to replace a disc in my neck that was pressing on a nerve bundle and causing lots of pain. In addition to the replacement, doctors fused the spine to ensure the new disc stays in place.
Getting lots of rest with the help of the family (my girls are awesome). No more pain in the right arm - just some soreness/stiffness in the back & shoulder muscles. Today was my first follow-up with the orthopedic surgeon who took these cool pics:

Still waiting on the return of my voice and of course all this came with some hardware (aka neck jewelry) that just begs for the "beadazzler":

I am blessed that none of this deters the avid knitter in me (lol) so I'm finally at a point where I can pick up the ole knitting needles. Here's the progress on Raglan Leaf T-shirt:

With a couple more weeks of recuperation, I look forward to clearing out the WIPs. Happy knitting everyone!

Girl you are tough. I hope that you are getting better. I will be down when you have a little more strength and I finish this house crap. I don't have a shoulder to cry on or a size 12 right sock to match the phantom one. :-}

I want to be just like you when I grow up!! Love the sweater. You have given me the urge to begin seriously knitting again. Happy that you have beautiful weather while you are healing. Take time to smell the roses and don't move too fast!
Love you,
