Okay, I understand that the expression "take a knee" has nothing to do with my knee. But my knee was worked over the other day
I have written quite a bit about my knees. They have both been bothering me (as in hurting)for ages. Tuesday I had surgery on my left knee. A total knee replacement. They dope you up pretty good and having you walking right after surgery. I walked from the OR stretcher right into my room and onto my bed.
Thing is, there were a lot of drugs on board, plus a "block" in my thigh.
By yesterday, the drugs were wearing off. And I got sent home. And it's hard and it hurts so much. Thank goodness Nick is here. I cannot even lift my foot high enough to put on my pants!
My step sister, who's a nurse, came and spent some time with me today so Nick could go out and grocery shop.
I am feeling pretty loopy and still sore. I look forward to the pain leaving me.
