Here's a visual documentary of my past few days...
Okay, this is NOT me, but it's what I looked like after surgery (minus the handcuffs, LOL!)
By Friday afternoon, still no pain and no pain meds! I walked down to the Nurses' Station with the physical therapist. She called me a rock star and said most of her knee replacement patients only make it to the door of their room on the first day after surgery. Go me!
I walked all the way to the hospital PT gym with the therapist and practiced going up and down the stairs a couple of times.
They released me to go home! Getting dressed was interesting...
This what the knee looked like yesterday before they unwrapped it.
I'm resting, doing my leg exercises, reading and basically just chillin'. Tomorrow the physical therapist comes to the house to continue my PT.
Maybe I can get back to writing tomorrow, since TILL YOU COME BACK TO ME has to be to the editor in three weeks...
Once again, thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. They mean everything to me!
