And he's working. Nowhere near home (laredo, tx and north of green bay, wi...nope, not close!) So I won't be baking a cake or making dinner for him. I will make it up to him when he gets home. Therapy did not go well today. My range of moti... Read more

I am so tired. My sister is dealing with mom and the hospital. It is good that I am not down there. I need to get my temper under control before I see my mother. I just found out that my mother LIED to me about being released from the nurs... Read more

And yet again they don't know what's wrong. They "think" she had a seizure from low sodium, but have no idea what is causing the low sodium. Apparently she paased out/fell Monday and no one knew until Wednesday afternoon. After school, my ... Read more

I have some wonderful Sparkfriends (and an incredible mother-in-law) that I am VERY grateful for. I have had a horrible time recently with my knee and not being patient and things just generally not going well. And I have been awful and whiney a... Read more

At therapy this morning. Told therapist what Dr said about the knee. Therapist said it's no big deal. So why do I feel like such a failure?? I am working so dang hard and it hurts so much and it is getting NOWHERE. What am I even bothering ... Read more

The good-the staples are out! Yay! And the incision looks good. I can probably start swimming in a few days/a week. And Hubs got a load out first thing this morning. And already has a good reload for the weekend. And I managed to get in and out ... Read more

Had good news, and so/so news at therapy today. Good news-insurance approved 12 more sessions. So/so news-knee only bent to 63 degrees and I still can't get it up onto the bed/mat without lifting it by my pantleg or sock. However-when I'm ... Read more
So far So good!

My son actually put the trash out without my having to shriek. Okay, it was just the big outdoor bins and the trash inside the house didn't actually make it out into the bins, but the bins made it to the curb! Progress! Hubs let me sleep wh... Read more

The second knee is. And it is stuck. I was pretty happy with myself going into therapy today because I've been pushing the dang thing and am starting to get some results. I can almost manage leg lifts unassisted laying flat. I can do 10 lifts wh... Read more

I'm finishing up with the cpm, Hubs called it the Contant Pain Maker this morning. Totally accurate. He put me in it this morning before his friend came for them to take our 2 big dogs and friend's one dog (sam size as ours) to the dog park. Tha... Read more

I didn't do much today, other than my home exercises and make short shopping lists for Hubs from the expiring grocery ads. There were some fresh things in the ads that I wanted, grapefruit, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, oranges, bananas, sa... Read more
Slow progress

But progress none the less. At therapy today I was able to bend the right knee enough to make the Nu-Step register that I was MAKING steps! PROGRESS! Because up until today, my movements were so small they didn't register. The workload was still... Read more

Which involved getting my labs done-I am holding my own with the blood thinners better this time. So that is a big plus. Not too many crying jags. A few, but not many. I did my home exercises, enjoyes snuggling in bed with Hubs for a while ... Read more

I went to therapy. I got advice from therapist and Dr about going to my uncle's funeral. And I called and told the family I'm sorry I can't come, but this soon after major surgery it would be too hard on my recovery. They understand. So I o... Read more
So Very Sad

I found out earlier today that my uncle passed away. He's had poor health for as long as I can remember, but has been holding his own and doing fairly well for quite some time. He was a rock for us when my Daddy died 2 years ago. He has always b... Read more
