Hi Stampers :
Happy Sunday friends !
Oh my goodness can you believe it is only (17) days till the 1st day of Spring . I am thinking by the way our winter has been this far we may not be in the warmer temps and snow free even if the calenders says we should be .
Either way just saying it makes me feel better already .
I thought I would share with you the photo we took the day I arrived in the ER and when they ended up having to cut my jeans off of me as you can tell my right leg is really swollen compared to the left . Here is another photo of what my jeans looks like after all the cutting was finished .
I am happy to report I survived my 1st week of out patient therapy . I got (3 ) more weeks (3) times a week . I was quite surprise how much the word spread around the office that when I came in on Thursday 4 therapists wanted to see my X-rays and were also amazed that I wasn't in a cast .They all said they don't see what happened to me very often.
The most painful part so far of therapy is when Ashley works on my scar tissue around my knee cap inside thigh YEWWW sends me to the moon I tell ya ….But when she works on my outer thigh muscle rubbing that~ feels amazing! So you know that old saying Good with the Bad right ? LOL! swear she has the boney-ist fingers in the world and gets right down the business .
Thank goodness for all the warm up excerises I do for 30 or so mins before she gets me . Then the ice down is also a top favorite .
I must say we have gone through so much ice in the Griffith home . I do not remember using this much ice with my past knee replacements . Frozen peas and frozen popcorn kernals don't last as long as regular ice . Thank goodness for Sams Club 20 lb ice bags which lasts almost a week .
On Friday I got my bend to 97 degrees and I am so excited about that …BUT I still have so much swelling in my leg .
Click HERE for a updated photo of my leg and what it looks like as of yesterday evening The Stri-strips are coming off now . It looks So much betterto me now and its amazing there is no itching,But where is does itch is behind my knee which is weird.
Yesterday I was hoping to get a video filmed for this upcoming week for you But Fridays PT had me icing alot and laid up for most of the day yesterday and standing while I film wasn't looking to promising . Maybe today will be better.
Here is my Sunday Share video .
Have a Wonderful Sunday Friends !
Until later.. Happy Stampin!
