I'm on the mend

I'm finally on the mend but it seems these days I spend more time in doctors office's than I do at home! Tuesday they tried to drain my knee but for some reason nothing would come out. They finally decided to administer Cortisone and I was prescribed a knee brace as well as an anti-innflammatory. Something must be working because I'm no longer on crutches. Yippeee!

I was finally able to get my breast drained and what a relief that has been. On the downside, once again it appeared to be filled with bloody fluid. When the doctor asked, "have you been doing heavy lifting" I didn't bother to reveal that I bowl three times a week with a 15lb. bowling ball or that I do strength training with weights. I don't consider either "heavy lifting" but I think he'd see it differently. Although I hadn't bowled in about three weeks I did on Wednesday and yes, I did have some mild discomfort. I bowled games of 220, 210 and 209 for 639 so the knee doesn't seem to adversely affect my scoring. Now I seem to be coming down with a cold or the flu so I've been trying to get lots of rests and unfortunately haven't done any sewing. Yesterday I did start to take apart a pair of slacks to try and recut them with a smaller pattern. We'll see how that goes.

I'm still on the cardmaking kick. Here's one of my latest.

  3. Glad you're feeling better. Although, I just got to mention that i'm sometimes lucky to break 100 when I bowl. And that's with a good knee!
