I ended up having surgery last Wednesday and have been home recovering since then. My mother told me, "You'd think that someone who was laying around the house all day would update their blog already!". OK, Mom, here it is!
Betty has been a good nurse and I am doing well. The doctor has moved me from my immobilizer brace to a hinged brace and said I can start putting some weight on my leg as I walk with crutches so I'll be going back to work next week.
Matt has enjoyed being moved to the back of the car.
Here's the knee at physical therapy. I'll spare you any gorier pictures.
Nick took a liking to my immobilizer brace.
Everyone has been so good to me since the surgery. Of course, Betty is number one taking care of me with such patience. The rest of my family and friends have been sending emails, cards, and texts checking on me and also sending cakes, pies, and cookies to make sure my repaired knee gets a good workout by carrying a few extra pounds!
OK, Mom, there's your update! Now please send another yummy apple pie!!!!
