I spent 6 hours knitting today. I'm nearly finished with my prayer shawl and I need to start getting things made for the summer's farm market. I have enough yarn for several fisherman's sweaters, so I started one of those. Plus I want to enter t... Read more
The knee is good, everything else?

Not so much. I came home yesterday and son was gone. He "didn't want to put up with cranky mom". I couldn't believe he had the nerve to say that! Like he does so much for me!? And the chores he does so are done to the bare minimum and when he do... Read more

The manipulation is done. The Dr was able to bend it to 110, but he said not to expect to be able to do that myself yet, lol. I woke up in excruciating pain, but not from the knee. It was all muscle spasms! It took a few different meds, but... Read more

Not too patiently, I'm willing to admit. I wanted to go swimming today. I KNOW I won't feel like it for at least a day or two (or ten, lol) after the manipulation tomorrow, so I wanted to do it before that. BUT they needed me to come home and wa... Read more

The manipulation on my knee, that is. I almost forgot to get my labs done yesterday, and when I finally got there in the afternoon-I ran into my Orthopedic nurse. I talked to her for a few minutes about everything that's going on with mom ... Read more

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

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

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
