I did laundry!!
Saturday, October 06, 2012      3 comments

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

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

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

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

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
Therapy-thank goodness I'm done for today
Monday, September 24, 2012      1 comments

I worked hard today. And I talked to the therapist about why I am in so much pain. The quad muscle is causing me more pain than the incision or the new parts! I have to slowly work the spasms out of the muscle and let it recover from the trauma ... Read more
Scale is back up, but it wont get me down!
Monday, September 24, 2012      3 comments

While I was at the clinic, I decided to do a weight check. I can't balance my weight well enough yet to use the scale at home, so it seemed like a good idea. The scale read 310.7 which had me a little down on myself, then I realized I have on fu... Read more
