This is a big step. No, not raising that incredibly straight leg on the beach pictured above, which will remain a personal aspiration for the time being.
But here I am at my computer, less than a week short of the one-month anniversary of my total knee replacement (TKR). It’s been an adventure that I’ll soon be sharing with you–probably in greater detail than you’d like.
For now, I thank you for your lovely messages. I’m doing fine, albeit still lolling in a slight opioid haze that The Powers That Be are determined to bring to an end, my pain be damned.
It will take a while for me to prepare a post, as my typing fingers can move faster than the knee that’s quite unhappy when it remains in a seated position. Time moves more quickly than I do as I adhere to the following regimen:
Apply ice for 20 minutes; stretch and bend for three sets of ten; walk for five minutes. Rest and elevate knee. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat…
I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to read and comment on your posts over the past several weeks. I look forward to doing better.
And a warm welcome to the new people who’ve joined annieasksyou during my hiatus. Your willingness to do so is an article of faith that I truly appreciate.
More to come ASAP. Watch this space!
