Not as bad as it could have been!

Friday, October 12, 2012      3 comments

Therapist said the fall wasn't so bad. I will have some colorful bruises on my tush where I landed, but no one will see those. I didn't do any damage to the implants! The knee appears to be fine and stable. I did stretch the muscles and ligament... Read more

Bad steps. BAD, BAD STEPS!

Friday, October 12, 2012      3 comments

This blog is probably not about what you think it is about. I did not make any unwise food or exercise choices. What I DID do-was fall on the stupid stairs going out of the house last night to go workout at the Y with my son. WITH my new kn... Read more

I'm making myself a Christmas present

Thursday, October 11, 2012      2 comments

I've decided that since I spend so much time making presents for everyone else, this year I am going to make myself a Christmas doily. I am tatting it. I have wanted one for seve... Read more

90 degrees

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

Hahahahaha! Happy dance! I made 90 degrees of bend, happy dance! Now just maintain and keep pushing. Slowly, consistently, I can't believe I got this far! And I'm good to workout on the recumbent stepper at the Y every day as long as I don't go ... Read more

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!!

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!

Saturday, October 06, 2012      1 comments

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

ugh

Thursday, October 04, 2012      2 comments

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

Sunday, September 30, 2012      2 comments

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
