I just completed the second day of staying off of my left knee. No running errands, standing, walking city blocks or climbing stairs. And I have been applying cold and heat to my knee regularly. I must report that the swelling is gone and so are the sharp pains. However, I am not confidant that this will last. But it hasn’t felt this close to normal (normal occasional pain) in over a week so I feel a tiny bit hopeful. I have cautious hope. But I know that I must make an appointment with my ortho surgeon doctor friend and he will probably deliver some scary news to me that involves the word surgery … or maybe not. I dread it but I must take care of this asap if any invasive procedures are necessary. Maybe I will just need physical therapy! A girl can dream, can’t she?
My BFF Babs brought me toilet paper and soup and some other necessities – bless her sweet soul. And thanks to cable, dvd’s and the internet, I have had plenty to keep me entertained. Plus being home has given me the time to do a lot of business which is always a good thing. I hired a messenger service to pick up some business stuff that needed to be delivered so all is well on that front. I have one more day of this idleness and then I must take care of some important things that require me to leave the house. (my nails, my brows Ha!) I will call for a taxi so that walking will be minimal. I think I might stop by the Spa for some water therapies (hydrotub) and a swim in the pool.
I will keep you posted.
