The doctor explained why I have to stay off my knee, and avoid pushing too hard, and I think I understand. It is basically a missing chunk of cartilage that they roughened up the surface under what should be cartilage to encourage my leg to bui... Read more

Didn't sleep much last night, and didn't sleep much tonight. Last night was one of thos nights where my arm was too long, too short, back in wrong place, pillows too soft, too hard, leg too high, you get the gist. When I finally got comfor... Read more

Today has been a better day. I am starting to accept my limitations, and finding ways to deal with them. I got a chance to go to a quilt class of sorts today, and it was a lot of fun. I wasn't allowed by my friends to wander the store since t... Read more
Major setback, in many ways

I got a phone call from my doctor this morning. I wasn't expecting it as I will see him on Wednesday. But he had to talk to me. Seems he minimized things when he talked to my husband after the surgery. I have really messed up my knee, an... Read more

The surgery went well, and it turns out that the problem was not what they thought. The Meniscus is intact, but the cartilage around it was torn, with a hole in the cartilage. They cleaned up the edges, and did someithing to try to get the car... Read more

I sit here on the couch with my knee up on pillows, the day before the surgery. I have seen my doctor for the pre-op "scare" and check up and it all looks good to go. At this point, I am about as ready as I am going to be to get this don... Read more

Gor a lot done this weekend, but not as much as I had hoped. Sunday I was a bit sore, so didn't do as much as I had planned, but I did get some done. Well, I haven't been able to get my studio as organized as I wanted, but it will be bette... Read more

Felt well enough today to make a quick trip to the barn, and it was exciting. They delivered the wood chips we'll put into the new dressage arena, and while they were moving logs to make room for the truck, they found a baby rattlesnake and had... Read more

Today my knee reminded me why we're doing the surgery, so I've been resting it and icing it a lot today. I still have a lot of preperations to do before then, and I hope that DH will help me. I had a bit of a breakthrough tonight. I... Read more

I find that by 2:00 in the afternoon I am forced to sit down and put my knee up. At least I have until then. Today was a good day, although my eating was a bit iffy. Not over in calories, but definitely not the best choices. Went to lunc... Read more
Day 4....

Today I woke up with a very sore knee, so even the visit to the barn has been out. I am sitting on the couch, my least favorite hobby, with my leg up. I am working to keep my boredom under control, thus keeping my eating likewise. I am ... Read more
Challenged, day 2

I can see that I will need to blog often to understand where I am right now. I find that I can walk about a mile before my knee starts to complain. This with a cane and slow. But hey, it's something. I ate breakfast, and had a simple, ... Read more

I have just returned from the doctor. This was a previously scheduled visit, and last week I was really hoping that it would have a positive outcome. Then came Sunday. The Cortisone shot wore off, and I haven't been able to walk on that k... Read more
How can it have been so long since I blogged?

It's been a busy month. I finally got the POS program at the shop live, and everything completed, so I am finally free of that obligation. It feels weird to not get up in the morning and go to work. I am working to find my routine to get ... Read more

I got back from the Orthopod this morning, glad that he is my doc. He is so patient, explains everything (including the xrays), and has a great sense of humor. That makes it all easy. Good news is that the diagnosis isn't too bad, and nei... Read more
