Two Weeks…

I am 2 weeks beyond the fall and just about 1 week post surgery… and I think I’m doing OK.  I’m putting a picture at the very bottom of this post – so if you don’t wanna see a few ‘pokie holes’ with stitches in my knee… well don’t look – although it really isn’t too gross.

The Dr.’s office said I could remove the wrapping on Friday when I called and cover the stitches with waterproof Band-Aids – the surgical wrap was slipping and rubbing the stitches and driving me nuts since the swelling had gone down quite a bit.  Today after my bath I took off those Band-Aids and took a picture before putting new ones on.  I think everything is looking good – in a knee full of ‘pokie holes’ kinda way.

Friday the stitches will come out at my Dr.’s visit… and I hope I can get a wheel chair for getting around the house.  Right now I’m using an office chair to roll myself to the bathroom because the walker was killing my right shoulder.  I may just end up in PT for it before my knee.

I’d like to say I’ve done lots of sewing – but I haven’t.  Last week I spent most of my spare time snoozing and this morning when I got the applique out I found that it bothers my shoulder… so I may just try out some knitting and see how that goes.

My knee (well at least a picture of the knee) is down there…

I know those little ones are keeping you entertained.
Hopefully the Dr can help you with the pain in your shoulder also- maybe some PT excersise you can do at home sitting.
