Thursday Thoughts 11/17/11

If you are squeamish at all, don't continue reading. This picture was taken earlier in the Fall.
  • One week post-op!
  • Knee, leg, thigh all hurts like hell.
  • Maybe I didn't have replacement surgery after all.
  • I think my leg got run over by a truck!
  • I used to think I was Superwoman.
  • I now know better.
  • If my sewing machine wasn't in the shop and I wasn't on bloodthinners...I still wouldn't be sewing.
  • Who wouldv'e thunk walking up or down 9 stairs would be such a chore?
  • The only thing I really want to get out of bed for is physical therapy and bathroom activities.
  • Sometimes you really do just need to do nothing.
  • I'm rather enjoying it.
  • I could enjoy it more without the pain!
I'll leave you all with a few pictures of my knee...you've been warned!

  1. When I broke my ankle it was HIDEOUS! This is going to heal up beautifully in no time. Of that I am sure.

  7. This scar looks so familiar. Virginia had this surgery a few years ago. Those meds had her loopy for a minute. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Take care!

  8. Looks like a nice clean incision - should heal well - once you get through the pain. Thanks for posting and keeping us up to date. Take care.

  11. Dont worry, my mom had the same surgery and it took a month for the swelling and pain to subside to where she could get around like she wanted to. Dont tell your doc you're going up and down stairs. My mom would go up the stairs on her bum since her bedroom is on the second floor. Once you have your knee done one good thing is you cant scrub floors any more ;)
