Knee Surgery Update!

Monday, October 06, 2014

I had knee surgery on Thursday! I am slowly recovering. Still icing a lot and am limping along.

I get soo tired so easily a lot. Still napping often. Get lightheaded easily.

but I got the surgery. They called it "cleaning out the joint". which apprently means cleaning out any debris in the knee. It sounded kinda funny and dubious to me. But now I just want to recover and get my leg muscles back to work again.

    emoticon I had my right knee joint cleaned out twice. Both times they cleaned out bone spurs, torn cartilage and anything else that was floating around in the joint. Once the pain and stiffness decreases, it feels much better!

    Hope this results in some much improved movement for you. Follow the doctor's orders, not taking on any more than what is recommended. Be well.

Crazy Times!

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I was going to get surgery for my knee, with cameras to see all the damage in my knees. But I went to a dance workshop, and my so-called cystic acne bup, turned into a boil like MRSA.

I have to wait until it heals all the way to have knee surgery. I am taking it slow with exercise.

I have found I need more walki8ng to lose weight So I got one good piece of the puzzle for me.

Well the journal doesn't help so much with food but navigating my feeling and making notes lol.

The sparkpeople app is much easier and convenient for adding in fitness, weight, food, etc.

unfortunatley my kidz deleted it while I was sleeping and am having a hard time getting it back on.

Will be working on that today.

And I'm still learning on what to do and what not to do to NOT activate my knee pain.

thanx emoticon

    I love the trackers and blog every other month or so . . . usually when a challenge asks us to. Journaling is a great technique in gathering our thoughts in so many areas of life. I think I just have trouble making too much public.

super stressed

Saturday, April 12, 2014

My husband left on a 9 day trip vacation. Since he left, my eldest child (son) with autism ran away three times and am in the process of trying to childproof the house and find better ways of preventing him from doing this.

Its soo hard because he ONLY does this with me. soooooo hard.

I'm so stressed. Plus I'm sick and am waiting for my medicaid renewal to go through before I can get on anti-biotics. And I have knee pain. It hurts really bad from time to time and I can't run after him.

I am so stressed I don't know what to do.

    there is no in-home health other than respite/day hab helpers. BUT, we are having a REALLY hard time finding a worker for him. He really needs more than 1x a week but we've having a hard time finding that for him.

But afterwards, when I told him "no running" he said "sorry" he has a hard time saying a few words, so it was sort of cute seeing him say sorry with his sad face on lol.

but yes because I'm the only one he doesn't listen to I'm going to be getting some more window locks, a better refirgerator and freezer lock as swell as harness that attaches in the back for him and see how that goes.

and thank you all for my prayers.

    I think some states offer in-home help for children with autism. Is there a doctor or other health professional you can ask about this?

a new experiment

Friday, April 04, 2014

I am trying a new experiment.

Whenever I get under 235, I sabotage myself.

I am going to ONLY weight myself once a week, on friday.

And because I get too obsessive with numbers, I have decided to record my food in a journal. Seeing all the numbers just isn't good for my sanity.

And also, dancing to two songs. Right now with my knee pain, dancing to any more than 2 songs puts my knee into lots and lots and lots of pain.

    thanx. the problem is figuring out a good go-to meal y'know? for when I'm feeling blah. something i can eat that my hubby and kidz won't eat up first lol

    It takes a wise person tries something new. You can do this. For me, I think I should rid the house of foods that I go to when I'm in a mood to sabotage myself. I've always felt good about picking one or two filling foods to make my "go-to" meal when I'm feeling hungry (even when I'm not). Fixing a bowl of oatmeal with a little fruit has done wonderfully in the past. It's time to end the sabotage! Yay! Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    Wishing you success. Sometimes when you plateau, or you "sabotage" yourself, you just need to change things up to get them kick started again.
