Well I had my knee operation on the 29th, and while it was minor, I am definitely less mobile and still in some pain. It was just damaged cartiledge...my meniscus is still in tact, so the doctor thinks I should be able to do everything eventually. I cannot wait to take my first walk outside...still have a couple weeks of physical therapy before that, but soon! I suppose I've waited 2.5 months, I can wait a few weeks. The highlight of my weekend though was being able to attend Easter Service. i'm sure I looked like a camel at communion, my bad leg stretched out awkwardly behind me, but i didn't care.
Now I'm in that dangerous portion of recovery where I feel so much better I want to do everything, and forget that I can't. I fed the cats this morning, and when I squatted down to reach the bowl, I felt a sort of crunching in my knee and some sharp pains...and this is not the first time. I just have to remind myself I am not 100% yet. But I'm counting the days.
Off to physical therapy. Thank you God, for doctors, nurses, healers, and scientists!
