Monday and Better


Happy Monday!! It has been about 4 days since my knee surgery and am doing pretty well if you ask me!! The operation itself was real simple. I arrived at 6 am last Thursday morning and was home at 9:30 that morning!! How is that for quick!!??

I had a pretty good day Thursday and most of Friday. Lazy Daisy and Mr. Wonderful made it here from Virginia around 6:30 that night. So good to see them!! Love having them here as always...Friday night was not my best...pain and no sleeping...But Saturday and Sunday were even better. You just have to do what the doctor and PT people tell you to do and things just seem to work out...

Today I am tired but almost running out of pain medication so know that I have to stop taking it or at least cutting it back. My knee looks pretty good too..even if i say so myself!!

So glad that I got this done and am starting to feel more and more like me every day!! I have had the best of nurses..Kathy and dear Mike!! They have been just wonderful to me. People have stopped by to see Kathy and Charlie and that has been fun to have more company. Never seem to have any and I love it. So many sweet people. Love having friends.

This is short..just wanted everyone to know that I am alive...not quite right leg kicking yet but will be soon..

I hadn't been around for awhile. I'm glad your knee surgery went well. I had the same surgery about a year and a half ago and it didn't go as well. It was my right leg too.
The Wordless Wednesday below is really funny. I wonder what the steer was thinking. Who is this guy?
Hugs,

Hey isn't it wonderful what surgery can do to make one feel better. Glad it all went so well for you, makes me wish mine was done and over, just keep putting mine off as long as I can walk and keep going. I am better think the new aleve i got is going to work for right now till Dad gets his hearing aids in and done, then it is my turn. We just take turns here at our house. Take care and talk to you soon. Love you mother

Oh I am so glad you are doing well and healing quickly. I so dread surgery but am so thankful I had my back done - a year ago March!
