Pam....

Yes it was a fractured patella & yes they did knee replacement back on May 16th & then in Sept they did a manipulation. The therapy down in Boise really hasn't really helped just like up in McCall. I see my DR on Nov 5th to see what he will do next. They down here thinks that I am rejecting the new knee or it is just so inflames as it is always hot to the touch the it is not healing.


Thank you for asking.

Hey Ya'll!!
How's it going? I am checking in to say to all the Northeasterners, "Stay Safe."
I am keeping you in my prayers. We were here when Charlie hit with 90 mile an hour winds, It' s scary! When the storm was over alot of the stop signs and street signs were gone.
But we survived. Sometimes once is hits land it weakens significantly.
I am still having job challenges..
Ida, I hope your knee gets better!! Yours was a fractured patella right?
So they didn't do a knee replacement?
I hope your therapist in Boise can help you unlike the other, where you live.
Have they tried putting a stretch on it while the hot pack is on?? Just trying to think of ways to help.......We are having a cool spell here, it's supposed to be about 58 degrees here tonight.
It is so good to get out of the hot weather.
We got a puppy to keep our dog company!! My doggies loves me like no other!! LOL! Later,


"keep coming back, it works if you work it!"

Evening everyone.....

Well we are still down in Boise. As far as we know we got one more week here unless they decide DH needs more treatment. My knee is really not doing that great. I went to the therapy pool tonight for about 3/4 hr. It helped a little but now it is hurting again.

Sorry to hear that your knee condition hasn't progressed better than that, Ida.

Hoping the rain stays away for a nice rail-trail ride tomorrow in backwoods Pennsylvania, just across the New York border.

Starting to get things ready for the 3 weeks DH & I will be in Boise. I was able to get my therapy set up down there for the 3 weeks so I didn't have to drive back up every week.

Knee is really bothering me and stiffening up. Therapist can't figure what is going on. in one day I dropped 5 degrees went from 115 to 110. He thinks that the scar tissue is building up again.

DH & I went walking this afternoon and did 3/4 miles. I will be taking the lap top so I will check in. We leave Sunday after church.

Hi everyone.....

Doing OK. Knee is still hurting. Have another month of therapy scheduled. Will be down in Boise from the 15th through Nov 2 with DH as he has a bunch of tests that have to be done.

I know that I am not on as much as I would like to be, but not feeling good does that to you.

Kudos to the eval Pam! All I can say is that IT'S ABOUT TIME someone recognizes what a dedicated GEM they have in an employee such as yourself! :-)

Savor those quiet times with DH Ida.

We had a great weekend with DS in Baltimore!

Regrouping with a quiet night in prep for the week ahead!

Hi Everyone!!
Ida, What is the next step for your knee? Did they try the Biodex with you?
I don't get it what could be next. Are they going in to clean some stuff out?
I am still praying for you. You have the patience of a saint!
I am finding it difficult to even go for a walk out here on the farm. Yesterday the dog took off leash and all after a rabbit and then got all caught in the weeds.
Today I put the prong collar on her and the neighbor lets her dog run loose so they were playing and getting all caught in the leash I came home and her dog followed me. I may have to leave doggie home to get some decent exercise.
Life in the country is peacefull but I miss the sidewalks and the neighbors that controlled their
animals in the city!
There are pluses and minuses about both I spose.
The Home Health Job is going wonderfully and I am busier than ever. Not even time to post and keep up with home.
Hope everyone is safe~~ Continue the Journey of Health Living!! Godspeed, Pam.

Evening.........

Hope everyone has a great long weekend & a safe one. I am doing OK. Bought a used bike today thinking it would be good for my knee as exercise. Being I have been using a stationary bike I didn't think it would hurt. Well I found out different. When I got on & tried to ride it I couldn't get my knee to go around. I am very frustrated now. Maybe when the Dr gets it to bend to at least 90 degrees I will be able to ride it. I have been walking between 3-5 miles a day to keep it from locking up on me.

Glad to hear you dodged the hurricane Pam...at least so far.

After talking to a few of the bike club members I'm thinking I might just be up for the race in the future. I'd definitely have to ramp it up. One of our speedy puppy members, a fellow I *KNOW* travels faster than I, sustained a 20 mph pace for the 16 miles of the race. It's several city blocks forming a mile-long loop you travel 16 times. Biggest concern I had was how close quarters folks were. I didn't want to hiccup and send myself and several others to the ground...lol! With a little more effort and training I could see myself maybe joining in the "fun." Even though I'm not a "racing" kinda cyclist.

Hi Everyone! Just stopping by for a quick post!! The Hurricane looks like it's taking a different more westerly track than earlier anticipated. We are Hurricane ready though in case it were to change it's mind.
Ida, I'm amazed that you can walk a 5 k Bravo! Don, cool about the bike race...bet you were wishing you could be in it.
Not alot going on here as far as exercise.Been on the eliptical a few times and many dog walks! It's been raining out there but it comes and goes as usual with tropical storms.
Take care and keep up the good work! P.

Brr, Ida! We had mid-80s here too, but only mid-60s at night.

Caught up with bike club members at a local bike race to cheer on some members who were in the race.

Good deal on the walking Ida! Sounds like a lesson there, re: pain after the 5k...? :-)

We've got a big local cycling / running race going on this weekend:

This is definitely NOT my kind of cycling! Rounding city corners in a swarm of cyclists at high speeds where one hiccup can send the whole lot crashing to the ground? No way! But it IS breathtaking to watch. Will bike into town to catch it tomorrow.

Oh my gosh, Ida, you DID NOT do a 5 K walk for real, did you? Are your knees doing any better? I hope so.

Hope everyone is feeling good
I am waiting for the state to OK the next step of my knee. Right now the more I exercise the stiffer it gets. Doing the reverse of what it should do.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Scary stuff...all the droughts, fires, smoke. I still remember while visiting family in SW Michigan earlier this summer stepping outside at 9 pm and finding the temp was 94 degrees! I'm hearing that some of the genetically modified crops in the mid-west have dried up in the drought into such severe stalks that they are tearing up tractor tires and needing to replace them with Kevlar-lined tires!

Never a dull moment for you, eh Pam? :-) Aren't we ALL "looking" for our places...? Onward!

Ida, WOW about the fires!! So glad you are ok. I know we live 3.5 hours from Orlando and we were having a heavy build up of smoke a few years ago. They offered me oxegyn when I got to the hospital, Even w the air on in the car the smoke can be bad.
Don, That's great, your son is visiting. Family always brings us back to the center of things!!
I applied for yet another PRN job. This one in an ALF doing out patient. That makes four agencies I'll be working for. The enviornment is alot nicer here than other places around town.
Still "looking for my place in this world." My daughter thinks we should open a doggie daycare since we have a farm..but I need my peeps!! Have a great weekend!

Hi everyone.....

We are having fires all around Idaho here. We went to Twin Falls on Tuesday and couldn't get back home till today. We had to stay in Boise as the roads getting back up here were closed till this morning. There is no place like home. The smoke was so bad here on Tuesday that I had trouble breathing. Today is not so bad.

Getting back to normal routine today. Going to try to have a good day.

Ida, Good that the doc is going to stretch your leg. Some ppl build scar tissue faster than others and that could be happening to you. The PT also has to stretch you real hard..There was a Biodex machine at the Dr. office where I worked to assist the therapist with bending and the patients said going on the machine was well worth it. Do they have an outpatient office near you that has one? Ask the Doc.
Don, yea, we know ice cream and all the toppings isn't good for us but we have strong denial!!! we can convince ourselves anyways !!
My job is getting more stressful. It's not easy working in some of these retirement communities. You have to be careful not to step on any toes. That's why eating chocolate appeals to me. The atmosphere can be depressing. But I want to really help them and will make sacrifices for the ppl to get better and even just to have the support they need.
Some of them are going through such tuff life changes.
I'm taking a break soon. I'll have a 4 day weekend...And I'm going to practice mindfulness.
That's Be Here Now. Cause I tend to live in the past or future and miss whats going on in the moment. Well nuff said, P.

Stretching...almost ALWAYS a worthwhile thing, right Ida? Sounds like things keep moving in the right direction for you! :-)

Pam, my son's apartment complex has a ground floor with banks, bars, massage therapy AND a frozen yogurt joint such as the one you describe...ugh! But it's YOGURT so it must be HEALTHY and we can pile 'er on, right?

HARDLY! Only went there once...hoping not to return for many a moon!

Re: lawn...at least there is more GRASS than there USED to be to mow...lol!

What control stretching therapy is you are put to sleep and the DR stretches the knee back as far as he can and you are in no pain. Then you start PT for 2 months to keep it from going back. There is a draw back that the fema bone could fracture during the processes. He said that he has only had one time that that has happen.

Morning.....

Just got back from DR. Visit went somewhat well. They are setting up for me to head back to the hospital for what he calls a control stretching therapy on my knee. It is not bending like it should. It is only bending to a 100 degree and he said it should be around 120-135.

Don, If your lawn is growing then you are getting rain!! Tha's a blessing!! From what I hear about the people North of here. We got our regular rain storms yesterday. Seems like you just can't keep up with the lawn this time of year.

I'm not even going to track my food, yesterday we ate out and went out for dessert. It had been a long time though and we had a fun date! Have you heard of Orange Leaf? They are alot like Fro Yo...You basically build your own ice cream treat...And build on the calories.

Ida, you never cease to amaze me because you exercise even when you don't feel well. How's the knee?
Gotta get ready for work. Have a Sparkyful day!! P.
