Happy 4th!

4th of july 2

Happy 4th of July Everyone.  I was fortunate enough to have a 4 day weekend since our company closed yesterday.  What a terrific time to catch up on rest and pay a visit to my parents and some friends in NH.  I hadn’t been there in 3 months, which is a long time for me to be away.  We had a nice dinner with Mom and Dad one evening, then we had a dinner party to attend with 10 ski friends which was especially nice.  Mr. Phat and I have both felt a little disconnected from our ski friends.  Hopefully we can be able to participate in some late season spring skiing next year.

I’m 8 weeks and 1 day past the second surgery.  Yes, I’m very slowly getting better but I still have brief episodes of severe pain in the knee and ankle.  The stiffness is subsiding a bit, but I’m still frustrated.  And I probably shouldn’t be.  I just took the dog on a half mile walk.  I’m not sure that’s common for someone at my stage of knee replacement.  I’m trying to move more every day.

My father has had his knees replaced.  Several times.  He did tell me that the pain will come and go for a while with seemingly no reason why it hurts.  That helps a bit but not a lot.  I want to be better now.

So speaking of movement, I’m going to go out and pull some weeds in the yard for a bit.  They’ve really taken over and I’ve been slacking.

Enjoy your day!!
