I'm learning!

Tuesday, October 09, 2012      1 comments

It's raining. I wanted to go to the Y and work out today while my son was at school. I'm not. It's really too dangerous for me to go out alone in the slippery wet for no good reason. I want to work on my leg! I really do! But I also know t... Read more

Trying to not over-do

Tuesday, October 09, 2012      0 comments

I should be sleeping, as it's 11 at night. But my legs are not having it. I've been working hard on the rehab for the new left knee and the right one is needing replacing as well and not happy with the amount of work it's having to put in. I'm r... Read more

I did laundry!!

Doesn't sound like such a big deal, but considering the new knee won't be 3 weeks old until Monday, managing that much walking with only 1 crutch is HUGE! It took me 4 trips from the bedroom to the kitchen (where the washer is, thank God the apa... Read more

Nope. Not happening. Ain't doing it. Don't care HOW healthy it is for me!

Ok, I've been working hard in therapy. I am able to take a few steps with no crutches, and as long as I feel ok, I can move around the house with one (I use the forearem crutches, much easier for me). That means I can start taking care of gettin... Read more

Hot Dang!

Therapy is done for the week. I started re-learning to go up steps with the new leg! The only pain was muscular?! AND I did TWO sets of leg lifts! Okay, I only did 5 reps, but I did 2 sets in less than 10 minutes!!! AND I WALKED!!! FIVE whole st... Read more

Not having a great day. Muscles still rebelling, son being typical teen (refusing to do chores) and just all around crappy day. And I have to figure out how to manage to change the sheets on the bed by myself and get the grocery shopping done if... Read more

Dr is pleased-me not so much

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      1 comments

I just got my staples out. Leg still looks like awful, but it will heal faster now. Dr said I am totally on track with where he wants me to be. I just want it to be faster. But I will do as I am told. I will follow directions. And I am totally t... Read more

another long day ahead

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      0 comments

Well, its 8am, I just took morning meds. After yesterday, I was needing the pain medication. I didn't sleep through a dose, that was for sure! I woke up with my leg saying "hey, you! I am NOT HAPPY HERE!" About 1:30am, which was half an hour too... Read more

LONG day out

Monday, October 01, 2012      1 comments

I went to Green Bay with a friend today. We both had Dr appointments, so it made sense (especially since I can't drive yet) I told her I wasn't up for a day of shopping as well like we normally do, so please don't plan on a lot of stops. 8... Read more

Amazing kid

I'm not sure if we do this on purpose, but my 15 year old son and I seem to have a talent for making each other nuts. Today I was driving him crazy by asking him what he was doing-not really wanting or needing anything-but he immediately jumped ... Read more

long weekend away from therapy

Saturday, September 29, 2012      1 comments

Sounds good, but probably isn't. I keep getting frustrated because other people at therapy were doing better than I was i.e. have more range of motion already or are walking more "normally", but they were-are all smaller, in better shape to star... Read more

Small steps-a few more

Friday, September 28, 2012      0 comments

Therapy today was rough. I felt like I did more, but the measurements were circling the drain. I had Dr. lower the dose on my pain meds yesterday and I seem to be tolerating the pain, but the muscle tightness is still annoying the heck out of me... Read more

New knee joint, same old muscles

Thursday, September 27, 2012      2 comments

As I sit here icing my uncooperative muscles, I realize this is going to take longer than I had hoped or planned. The new bones are working great, no grinding, no screaming pain with every step, my kneecap stays where it belongs, its fabulous! T... Read more

Slowly recovering-still

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      2 comments

It feels like its taking forever, but I made 81 degrees of bend already. I'm having trouble remembering to take pain meds because it doesn't hurt-until it HURTS!! Then it takes forever for them to work because-my silly butt didn't keep the level... Read more
