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.

We all become discouraged at one time or another. It is easier said than done that we must just get up dust our selves off and keep on trying. It seems to me that I am dusting myself off a lot lately but I know that eventually I will get there one day at a time as well as those that are finding them selves in the same situation. I know we can do this one day at a time and we will.

    YES WE CAN DO THIS!!! You are not alone. I have not had knee replacement surgery but have had a lot of PT. It is long, hard and painful. But hopefully it will be well worth it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We just never give up and that's the main thing that keeps me going, with baby steps forward and a day at a time.

    I know you will get there.... not sure if this is about your knee or not. but keep on trying to do all they say. I am saying this for you and me, I go for my replacement Dec1. and have been telling myself yes it is extreme pain for 6-8 wks but then I will be so much better off. Today I can believe it as the cold has come and my ankles and knees are so bad.

HUGS and hope things get better.

Trying week.

Saturday, November 08, 2014

This week has been a trying week. Changing to doing pt on what is call aftercare and it has been challenging and different. I am still finding it hard to do 2 things one is balancing on one leg and the other is stepping over cones. I am slowly getting off the cane and some days are worse than others. I am getting there one day at a time.

    I hope you can walk soon. I don't know anything about knee replacement surgeries. I know that physical therapy can be hard to do and painful, stick with it, those physical therapists know how to get you back in shape again. Don't give up. Keep thinking about being able to walk again without any aid.

I will be praying for you.

    I am sorry you've had a difficult week. Don't let it get you down. Keep your chin up and focus on those moments when you walk without the cane! emoticon

Sending wishes for a wonderful Sunday! emoticon

Interesting day.

Saturday, November 01, 2014

This morning my daughter and son decided to burn something outside and low and behold we ended up having to call the fire dept. The fire was getting away from them but before the fire dept got here they got it under control. I have been telling them all day you tried to burn my house down. They both inhaled a lot of smoke and have been coughing a lot. My son singed his eyebrows some by getting to close to the fire trying to get it under control. On the good side on Monday I will start what is called after care with PT and I have done laundry and swept on my kitchen floor. Getting there slowly.

I went to see my surgeon on Tuesday and he release me. Just have to finish my Physical Therapy. At pt they told me they would be upping the amount of weight on my leg on Monday, so here we go just one more step to getting better.

    Oh great so glad for you!! and my surgeon called Friday, my surgery date is Dec 1. I am ready but scared. mostly cos I don't want it done as it feels so much better.... and also cos I really don't want artificial stuff in my body. Anway no matter I am eating so healthy, moving and still doing my pre surgery physio so I can be as strong as I can to recuperate well. My dad just found out he has stage 4 kidney disease so no idea how fast that will take him... I have my plate full but don't know that there is ever a good time to get it done.

HUGs and glad you are doing better!
