I woke up too sick and sore to sit through church, so N went without me. Clearly, my expectations for healing after this surgery were way out of line with reality. The fact is, I need to rest, and that's that.
My favorite resting activity is reading, and I've mentioned before that I'm addicted to my Amazon Kindle 3G device. In addition to the fabulous aspect of being able to carry your library with you everywhere you go, it's also a lot easier on sore hands and wrists than a printed book is. The muscle relaxants and restveratrol seem to be helping a bit, but my progress has been slow.
So here are a few books that are on my Kindle now and being read in no particular order:
Prayers and Lies by Sherri Wood Emmons: A great debut novel. I'm only about 1/3 of the way into it but love it.
Blood Work: A Tale of Murder and Medicine in the Scientific Revolution by Holly Tucker (just downloaded this morning). Looks good.
Forever Queen by Helen Hollick: A long historical fiction piece set in Anglo Saxon England in the 11th century. I love medieval novels, and this is right up my alley. Well-written and well-paced, I'm taking my time with this one.
So that's about it for now. Until the painkillers wear off...
