I just wanted to "pop" my head in and let you know how things are going! My knee replacement surgery went well, thanks to Dr. Thomas Whitten and his excellent team @ Mercy Medical Center. I am at home, recouperating..slowly but surely. It's kinda funny - because I thought I'd be up and running around....not so. It takes time for 26 sutures to heal, for swelling to subside and for pain to dissapate.
I have started physical therapy and all I can say is "wow". No one told me that the pain would be enough to make my eyes cross ALL OF THE TIME!! But - I am a "troopette", so no pain -no gain. I used to think my pain tolerance was pretty darn good - until I had this surgery. I mean, shucks - I had two babies..so I thought nothing could outdo that level of pain. Au contraire - knee surgery will knock you on your behind!!!!
I am walking with a cane now - albeit slowly. Don't worry - I'll be back up to a reasonable amount of speed soon enough. It's my plan to be back in the office at "full tilt" after the holidays :)
I really and truly want to thank all of you for the kind words, many prayers, sweet thoughts, lovely cards and gorgeous flowers that have been sent my way. It did my heart good!!!
Thanks for thinking of this Diva......I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!!!!!!
