Short steps.

Saturday, December 20, 2014

I decided to try very hard and get to where I can walk a block with out my cane by January 5h, 2015 when I go back to work after being off for the holiday brake from work. I know it will be hard. I have to work on getting my stamina to be longer at a time. My next goal will be to get into the pool when we go back to work. I know it will take time but I know that one day at a time I will get there. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

    Hugs at 3 wks Monday physio said walker still, however I use cane once in while. And have walked few steps alone when I forgot my walker but quickly reach for it. Just wishing I could get my bend better but trying hard. Hugs and take care!

Orthopedist again this week.

Saturday, December 13, 2014

I had to see my orthro again this week. I have pulled the big muscle in the back of my left leg. It is very painful and makes it hard for me to walk. The DR put me on a steroid in Thursday and it is doing better today. I told the DR that it seems since I had my knee surgery that I have taken one step forward and 2 steps back ward. Next week I only work 3 days then off for 17 days for Christmas break. It should be a lot better when I come back to work.

  Its frustrating I know. I had a friend who had knee replacement and he didn't follow drs orders and he had to go thru another surgery because of it! Hang in there!!

    Sometimes things don't happen on the schedule that we want. Now is not the time for action and striving -- now is a time to be patient and to heal. Accept that and put all your efforts into looking after yourself.

Trying to be patient.

Saturday, December 06, 2014

I know that with everything that I have developed since having surgery it will take time for all of these areas to heal and I am trying to be patient but it is hard. It could take a few more weeks before I can get back into the pool.

Ortro visit last week.

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Not only do I have a plantar fasciitis I also have rotor cup tendinitis in my left arm due to a flu shot and they both will take time to heal. I have to roll my left foot with a golf ball. I also have started shots in my right knee as it is getting bad. So here I go again on the road to another surgery but hopefully this time I will be in better shape. The last few days this week have been a little slower and restful back to work on Monday and hopefully the pool will be open. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    OH WOW HUGS!!!! planter fasciitis is wicked and so is rotator cuff as I have that right now too. but from a flu shot??? hmmm I did have my flu shot in that arm? hmm.
I am presuming you had your L knee done already. Bummer that your other one is bothering you. Sure hope that you will be feeling better soon.

I go Monday for my R knee, somewhat concerned as I have a sore throat that isn't getting better, hope they don't cancel but will see. I also don't know whether to do epidural or general. Pros and cons to both. With my throat they may strongly suggest epi which he already is. Eeek not sure.
HUGS feel better soon!

    Oh my, I can sure enter in with your shot in the knee. I'm on my 2nd cortisone in my right knee for a total knee replacement Dec. 15th, so coming up sooner than later! It's all a part of getting older and what we injured when we were younger, etc. I really feel for you with your shoulder and feet too. My feet and hands are so full of Rheumatoid Arth. and even with good RA meds, I can feel it for sure, but I know that I'd be alot worse without the meds. It's so good that we have good caring doctors! emoticon emoticon

Glad for a week off next week.

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Where I work will be closed for Thanksgiving for the whole week. I am so ready for this. I am going back to see the orthro next Tuesday as I am having trouble on the bottom of my heal on my left foot. They think it could be plantar fasciitis. My daughter and I went a bought a pair of shoes from skechers shoe store. They were recommended by the orthro nurse. So here we go just getting there one day a time. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving.
