    Not to beat a dead horse....I am almost 4 months post op. I haven't taken any drugs since 2 months post op (don't get me wrong...since I've been back to work part time, I'm thinking of asking my doc for something!). But my short term memory is shot! I went to PT today and knew the minute I walked in the door that I was there on the wrong day...and I looked at my appointment card this morning! I completely confused a tutoring client, telling her to come on the wrong days...TWICE! I think I am still dealing with the effects of the anesthesia and the narcotics. But I'm starting to get annoyed!

    Yep...I go from being annoyed to laughing it off. My kids think it's hilarious because I'll forget about their chores (he he) there's always a silver lining (for others anyway)
