Now to the title post. I will be going in to the hospital for some in/out knee surgery on Monday. Boo. I have been having problems with it for sometime, and during the Thanksgiving holiday I have had fluid and a shots twice and they have not done any good. After just walking half a block I am in pain and cannot bend the knee, and trying to go to the bathroom (lets just say, I have not missed the stool yet, put have almost falling off).
Today, I went in for my postop work, which included being trained to walk with crutches. That just was not going to work for me, not enough upper body or arm strength to walk with the dame things.
Hell, just get me home and put me to bed, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I am just hoping that the guys around will at least through me some food upstairs, since I do not plain to be walking around too soon. Not sure how long I will be off the leg, put I decided to go back to work today (I was to be off until the 10th), so I can collect some work to do at home.
Since I could not walk with the crutches, they decided that I might be able to work with the walker.
Yes, that is the walker. My mother has the matching set. When my son came home and saw it, the first thing that came out of his mouth was “You are not going anywhere with me with that thing”. You are not an old women.”, I might not be an old women, but my body is breaking down. I should have some great funnies to tell after this surgery.
Watch out check out the new wheels. Another problem with this surgery is that I might not be able to sew, since it is my right knee, will have to check with the doctor on this, so that means I will have to speed up the time to get my Dresden blocks done. Marathon quilting on the way. I will most likely miss my Guild meeting put hoping I will not miss my Bee meeting. (Charlene, clear out the back seat of the car, I might have to lay across the seat.) So I plan to do a lot of cooking this weekend, just so I have something to eat in the house, those boys cannot cook and hopefully they will not eat up everything I cook.
Happy blog hopping
