Continuing Tales of a Bad Knee

I just wanted to jot a quick note to my friends to let you know that I haven't taken time off from the computer…at least voluntarily.

Since my partial knee replacement a few years ago, there have still been some ongoing issues. My surgeon and I are trying what we can to avoid a knee replacement revision as that is a big surgery.

Anyway, over the weekend, somehow I managed to break the blood vessels in that leg and it turned blue and swelled up. It's also very painful right now. Oh the wonders of strong pain meds! So per the doctors and most importantly The Bossman's orders, I'm relegated to sitting on the couch with my leg propped up and iced for at least the next few days.

I just didn't want anyone to think I'm such a mental mess that I needed more mental health days away from the computer. *laughs*

Ouch! Sorry you're gimpy! Hope it gets better soon, with as little intervention as possible.

Wow Dawn, I'm sorry about the knee.

Hoping for a quick recovery.

Also, I am in a bit of a bad space now with Olivia's memorial date coming up. She LOVED purple butterflies. It took my breath away to see your graphic and the message with it. I feel it is a sign. Thank you for that.

I'm being patient....
