Oh my, Rose, I'm sorry to hear you're having problems from doing too much!
I think I may have gotten away with my stupid opening of the heavy doors, which I've been bellyaching about to all who would listen (on any forum) and I think you advised me to take it easy. Why is it always so much easier to advise others than to take our own advice? Somehow, we think we know just how far to push it, but we don't!
I had to laugh about you asking your husband to cut your toenails. Mine still hasn't! He says he will, but the right time never comes :( A friend did it the first time, almost 2 months ago, and my daughter did it on Saturday. I can't get my foot up there, either, and my surgery was on March 7...and I didn't have a fusion, like you did!
Be kind to yourself!
