One of these things…

Is not like the other…

knee 2

That’s what goes through my head when I look at my knee.  I am in a little less pain directly in the knee tonight (unless I move around) but have more aches in other places now.  Some from the fall and some from the extra effort it takes to get around.  My neighbor brought a walker over for me to use – it’s much easier to get around with that than with the crutches.

This I know… I’m gonna have great abs when I’m done with this nonsense.

I saw the Orthopedic Dr. today and as I expected he said he’d need to see an MRI to determine just how much is damaged.  Although I was able to get in this afternoon for that… I don’t see the Dr. again until a week from Friday.  Apparently he’s got surgeries scheduled between now and then and won’t be in the office.  Hopefully someone will at least look at them and get back with me about what they see. 

So we are in a “Hurry Up and Wait Mode” around here… so tomorrow I’ll start with some hand applique I have to do and I’ve got some knitting to keep me busy. 

I want to say Thank You to all of you who have sent good thoughts my way and are keeping me in your prayers.  I do appreciate all the positive vibes I can get!

I do hope there's no major damage for you. I will push your wheel chair around at the quilt show in March!

WOW ! You really did it good. And and you just got new muck boots to help in the snow shoveling... Guess no more shoveling for you... hope the swelling goes down soon for you.
