I can’t go far in my photo jaunts right now, but I can at least take a close-up picture for you of a pretty geranium bloom next to the front porch!
I had the knee manipulation procedure at the hospital yesterday, along with a cortisone shot. I am happy to report that everything went well! I got out of the day surgery complex in record time and was able to relax the rest of the day with elevating and icing the knee joint. I went to physical therapy this morning, within 24 hours of the procedure. I did better on my knee flexing and with much less pain! It is plenty sore this evening from the workout, but it is a different kind of soreness than before. The joint is more swollen temporarily, and I am modifying my exercises for a few days to give it a partial rest. I can already tell that some scar tissue has broken up, and the kneecap area pulls less when I walk.
Thank you for all of your good wishes and prayers! For the first time since the replacement surgery, I see a ray of hope that I may get back closer to the life that I used to have. We’ll see what progress I can achieve in the next couple of weeks!
