“Oh! And oh yes, I had surgery twice this year.”
Tracy was trying to summarize for a friend why the year was hectic, even though there is only Kyle still at home, who largely takes care of himself. She listed still working full time...filling a couple of major slots at church... clearing up the last of her father’s estate (almost done)...and all the usual life-upkeep tasks...Her brow furrowed, wondering why it felt so hectic when she was “only” doing that regular amount. Then she remembered the surgeries: emergency appendectomy, and a planned foot surgery that she is still getting past months later. Those ate into her schedule a bit.
I'm guessing the appendectomy was surprisingly easy to get over compared to the foot surgery! You have to live with someone who's had surgery that keeps you from walking, I guess, to understand what a hole it knocks in your life. I've never had to do it. Of course it seems like ages before the simplest task of getting around isn't a big major ordeal. I sure hope she's feeling much better now.
