"Knee Update....."

First off, I'd like to apologize to those of you who have expressed concern at not seeing any new entries as of late. I should have written a few words to let you know how I have been getting along, even though I didn't have any photos to go along with them. :)

I had my 2 week after surgery "check up" last Friday, January 23. I was given the OK to drive as soon as I cut down on my pain meds. :) Another HUGE bonus, was that I was also told I didn't have to wear the thigh high socks during the day any longer! Those words, believe me, were VERY sweet to hear.

I was discharged from home bound nursing and physical therapy last Monday, January 26, and began driving to out patient physical therapy the following day. I have driven twice this week and each time it has gone very well. I even went through Mc Donald's drive through for lunch today.

My next driving excursion takes place on Monday, when I have another physical therapy appointment, plus I have to go have blood drawn to check my blood thinner meds.

Again, I apologize for not updating sooner and thank you for those little "nudges" I received. ;)
