Today I had my first outpatient physical therapy after my partial knee replacement. It was first thing in the morning, which usually is a great time. However, last night my 7 year old came home from an event crying because her ear hurt. Long story short, it was a very long night for the two of us with not a lot of sleep.
While I was in PT, her Dad was lining up a doctors appt for just after I got home. So I picked her up and off to the appt. we go. She was in so much pain, she wouldn't even eat breakfast - a first for this girl. Verdict at the doctor: Ear infection, ruptured ear drum and bronchitis. Drove her back home to be with Grandma (who is here to help me post knee surgery until Sunday) and then off to not one, but two different pharmacies. The first one didn't have the ear drops so I also had to wait at the second one. By this time, my knee is moaning in pain.
Went back home, had a bite to eat so I could take the stronger pain medicine. Had my daughter eat yogurt and crackers so I could get 3 different medicines into her and then off to the recliner to elevate and ice leg, while I took a snooze. Finally feeling much better, but knee feels abused today. So glad it is the weekend!
