Morning Monkeys!

Has anyone heard how CBB is progressing?  Wishing her well.   an angelic monkey

Mere - Thinking of you and hope this past couple of weeks since we last heard from you, has
           brought substantial healing and advancement to your full recovery.   an angelic monkey

Well....today was six weeks post op and I went into the city to have my leg checked.  Got an A+ from
the P.A. who could not believe how well I was walking and how much I could flex and extend my leg......it was back to normal...... and she told me that I could stop PT unless I wanted to continue for strength purposes. 

I am walking now and using a cane for longer distances.
I will continue with PT and learn some new tricks....like climbing stairs to post office and going into Olive Garden....lol.  I do expect another six weeks of muscle strengthening.  They took x-rays of both legs.  It certainly shows the difference.

So.....for all of you who have supported me, thank you so much.....

Hi Mere,

So happy to see you are doing well.  I think it's a good idea to continue PT for another six weeks.  You will be amazed how much you could strengthen your leg.

Looking forward to your next update when you tell us you are jogging around the block

Best of luck on your road to recovery. Having had two knee surgeries and 3 on my ankle ... I feel your pain. 

Keep up the PT, even when you feel like you don't want to. Praying you are back on the mend in no time. Best of luck!!!

Thanks GE!   

Hopefully the storms are over for a while in my area. 

Thankful we're ok, and hope all of our other Texas monkeys are too!

We've had a few scary nights, and way too much rain.  Much cooler tonight too.  Looking forward to a few days of sun now!

I hear you texasmom. It was very cool here yesterday. Today is beautiful with sunny skies. Think the rain is gone for awhile. Glad you and your family are okay. Hope you enjoy the sunshine.

Okay....off to week 7 of total knee replacement.....

      This is a tough surgery, but it is getting so much better.  I am walking without assistance...although I keep the cane in the car in the event I see a curb that might need some help.

I have a small ice chest with Zip-loc bags right next to my bed.  Ice is just super for pain management. 

On the plus side, I have lost 30 pounds.  This really helps as I needed to knock off some extra weight.

At the height of pain management.....I was taking 1/2 pain pill about every 4 - 6 hours.  At the last doctor's visit, the
P.A. told me to change meds and go to a stronger dose and see if I could take one whole pill every 10 or so hours.
She was so right.  I now take one pill every 12 hours....and it works.

Of course, pain medicine is not good for staying "regular"....so I can speak on that subject also....lolol.

I feel pretty old for all of this, but I think it will be worth it.

Big hugs to all of you......Mere

You know, I haven't even bothered following the derby this year.  All I know is the traffic between here and Louisville is absolutely horrible.  I have never gone to the Derby (my parents would never allow it---too many wild parties in the in-field.   
I have only been to Mammoth Cave once (when I was a freshman in high school).  Lots of great sights in Kentucky but I guess living within driving distance takes the fun out of a "road trip".

Hope you are still doing good Mere.  (Carpe Diem came in 10th) If I had to pick one it would have been Danzig Moon!

Hi Mere,

To walk without pain makes it all worth it.

Keep up the good work and thanks for the update.

I'm so proud you're getting there, Mere!   

Thank you so much for keeping us posted on your recovery!  You're doing great.

If you can have it, try a snickers bar with a hot cup of coffee.

Yes, Mere.  That's a home remedy passed down from my grandma, and my momma.  Hope it worked for you!
