Hello everyone and let me say first. A huge THANK YOU to so many of you that have kept up with me although I have been so MIA here on SP. Your comments, goodies, phone calls, text and FB love have been so helpful and kept me moving forward when I only wanted to crawl under a rock............with a chainsaw and cut this KNEE off.
Well, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration
I am also doing the BLC round again for the 7th time although I did take a break from Round 21. My BFF -SEVEN- talked me into it and I am so thankful to her. I am now a Steely Sapphire Soldier and there are so many of my team members that have had knee surgeries that I know I am in a great place to get moving forward. GO SAPPHIRES GO! HOOAH!!
For my other teams ESPECIALLY the Pink Panthers of the BL Winter Challenge (you gals are the cream of the crop) thank you for letting me get away with not being around so much and I promise to do better and get my hiney back in gear.
Now I saw the knee specialist today and there is good and bad news. Apparently he does not think the procedure he did to my knee has worked, he said it was a 50/50 chance and of course my knee would protest. But he is not giving up just yet and has allowed me to finally be weight bearing on my right leg again, he is also sending me to PT twice a week and wants me in the hot water pool while I am doing stuff..............that should be fun!! He is also going to start some injections to my knee in 6 weeks that is a kind of cartilage substance to see if that helps and if none of this works.................dun dun dunnnnnnnnn
I will be having either a partial or total knee replacement before this coming Christmas. I do believe I will put it off until the spring as one of my problems is that the COLD is just a killer on the old knee.
He has upped my pain medication by twice what it was and says that will help with getting back to walking on it and the PT. I can drive my car again but only if I feel I am in control (which honestly I do not being on all the pain meds) so my wonderful DH will have to be my taxi for a bit longer.
I am finally able to get on the computer at my computer desk for a bit longer than I was able to and I am once again using my notebook while I lay in bed or am in the recliner with the leg propped up.
So that is about it gals. I look forward to doing more so I can take off this weight that I have gained since the surgery but I PROMISE not to overdo it either. I still have my trusty NEON PINK
and will use it as I need it.
So thank you for listening and for always being there for me. As I always say LYG or LOVE YOUR GUTS as I always say,
Nimsy the Nimster
