I feel bad that I have not been around since the first part of November. Two surgeries in that time have pretty much taken the spirit out of me for a while.
After my knee replacement around the first of November, I was out of action a lot longer than I expected, but it is coming along pretty well now. I am still doing therapy so I can get all the movement and strength back.
As soon as I was off the crutches, I had surgery on my hand. The Dr. cleaned up a mess in the joint between my thumb and the rest of the bones in the wrist. All the cartilage was gone, so I had bone on bone.
I finally got the cast removed last Friday and now I have a removable splint. I started therapy to get my thumb moving again, but that is slower (and more painful) than the knee.
I plan to start checking in with SparkPeople again soon. It is hard to type with one hand.
I am not writing this to complain, but to thank all my spark friends for their concern and to apologize for not up-dating everyone sooner.
As things continue to improve, I will get back on schedule as soon as possible.
Again, thank you all for your thoughts and well wishes.
