Staples are out and all areas are looking much better. The staples were irritating the skin in a couple of places and they didn't look very good. With the staples out, those areas look much better. I still have a couple of sore spots but the doctor said I should continue to take it easy for another 2 or 3 weeks. All in all, things are very good.
The 'essential' items were unpacked and put away before my surgery. Now I am gradually unpacking and putting away the rest of our stuff. I am not supposed to be lifting anything heavy yet, so it is a slow process but at least it is progressing. I see a couple of large donations to Goodwill in my near future. If we aren't using things, there is really no point in keeping them. Especially when someone else might be able to use them.
So far, 2012 is looking very promising. What have you been up to?
