Two weeks old today

Monday, January 07, 2013      5 comments

The second knee is. And it is stuck. I was pretty happy with myself going into therapy today because I've been pushing the dang thing and am starting to get some results. I can almost manage leg lifts unassisted laying flat. I can do 10 lifts wh... Read more

Sunday

Sunday, January 06, 2013      4 comments

I'm finishing up with the cpm, Hubs called it the Contant Pain Maker this morning. Totally accurate. He put me in it this morning before his friend came for them to take our 2 big dogs and friend's one dog (sam size as ours) to the dog park. Tha... Read more

Slow saturday

Saturday, January 05, 2013      5 comments

I didn't do much today, other than my home exercises and make short shopping lists for Hubs from the expiring grocery ads. There were some fresh things in the ads that I wanted, grapefruit, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, oranges, bananas, sa... Read more

Slow progress

Friday, January 04, 2013      6 comments

But progress none the less. At therapy today I was able to bend the right knee enough to make the Nu-Step register that I was MAKING steps! PROGRESS! Because up until today, my movements were so small they didn't register. The workload was still... Read more

A More "normal" day

Thursday, January 03, 2013      2 comments

Which involved getting my labs done-I am holding my own with the blood thinners better this time. So that is a big plus. Not too many crying jags. A few, but not many. I did my home exercises, enjoyes snuggling in bed with Hubs for a while ... Read more

Making Progress

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      2 comments

I went to therapy. I got advice from therapist and Dr about going to my uncle's funeral. And I called and told the family I'm sorry I can't come, but this soon after major surgery it would be too hard on my recovery. They understand. So I o... Read more

So Very Sad

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      6 comments

I found out earlier today that my uncle passed away. He's had poor health for as long as I can remember, but has been holding his own and doing fairly well for quite some time. He was a rock for us when my Daddy died 2 years ago. He has always b... Read more

Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      4 comments

One way or another, it is going to be better this year. Pray more, weigh less. Exercise more-AFTER the leg heals. I had a better night. The new meds are lower dose (which when I had the last surgery and asked for this dose, I was told he di... Read more

Praying for a better new year...

Monday, December 31, 2012      2 comments

This one is not ending well. I had to go to the hospital today for bloodwork, so went for weight and bp check and to see what can be done about pain meds since I was already there. I am up 3 pounds. No big deal. My leg is swelled so much i... Read more

It's been such a long day

Sunday, December 30, 2012      2 comments

I can't tell if I am feeling better or worse or the same. I have therapy at 9 in the morning, so I need to be going to sleep soon. It's almost 10 now. I couldn't remember if I toook my pain pill when it was due last time, so instead of risking a... Read more

Time goes so slow

Sunday, December 30, 2012      3 comments

When you're recovering from something. I apologize for being whiney, but it's my blog and mainly for me. If it helps me to vent here, so be it. I didn't manage more than 3 hours of sleep at a time still. My muscles still feel like I'm being pull... Read more

Yay for weekends!

Saturday, December 29, 2012      2 comments

No therapy! Other than my home exercises. Doing those. Managing fairly well. Hubs has to put me in the cpm and he likes it even less than I do (he can't stand seeing me in pain) so he just ignores me when I say it's time to do it. Then I have to... Read more

Made it-

Friday, December 28, 2012      6 comments

Through the first night and day home. And through the first therapy session. Barely. And 3 going on 4 sessions in the torture machine. The therapist said there is nothing wrong with setting it within my pain tolerance and slowly increasing it. M... Read more

I will survive this one way or another.

Thursday, December 27, 2012      2 comments

I made it pretty dang clear that I was not happy about that cpm and it being set so high last night. When Dr came in we were discussing it, and he said he was the one who ordered it (I had been questioning it, I suspected it was that therap... Read more

CPM Right up there with Windows 8

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      3 comments

Meaning they both really stink. They put me in a CPM for an hour this afternoon and I honestly thought I was going to die. It hurt SO bad, I laid there in tears. Hubs went and got my nurse and she brought ice packs and morphine. Thank God. Then ... Read more
