One more day and I get to go home!

I thought you might like to see one more picture of this rehab facility. Isn't this beautiful? It looks even better in person!

Tonight's dinner special was filet mignon. It was absolutely delicious! This place is incredible but I will be so glad to go home. I want to sleep in my own bed with my own feather pillow and be among family.

My husband has come every  night to eat dinner with me. It has been like eating out every night for the past three weeks! But all good things must come to an end.

I have had physical therapy two hours every day six days a week. I have come a long way but I still have a long way to go. My knee is still pretty stiff. Now the out patient therapy will begin. So with a lot of hard work I should be back to normal in a few months. I sure hope so anyway! I have so much I want/need to do!

I am still here

Two weeks and a day after my knee replacement surgery finds me still at the physical therapy rehab center. It has been a difficult two weeks but I believe things are looking up. I sure hope so!

My wonderfully funny husband thought I needed a Christmas tree in my room. Want to see what he brought? It is a Charley Brown tree!

I would like to take this time to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May this new year be filled with God's blessings.

Want to see my room?

This is my room at the physical therapy rehab center. The photos aren't very good because I took them with my phone and the windows are back lit.

The last three pictures are of the bathroom. Even it is pretty! Overall the room has a warm feel, the view is wonderful and if I have to be miserable this is the place to be. It sure beats the depressing hospital room I had!

It is over!

Well, the surgery is done and I am now situated in a physical therapy rehab center. Having a knee replaced is not an easy thing to go through and I never thought I would have three done in a year and a half! Recovery is slow!. Very slow but I will get there. Eventually. Today has been a rough day but hopefully things will improve from here. Right now my knee is under it's umteenth icepack. The view out my window is lovely and I have beening watch lots of movies on cable TV. Christmas music is playing in the halls!

 Please keep me in your prayers, I need them all!

What I have been up to

I thought I had better take a moment and let you know what I have been up to. Life has been very busy around here. I am trying to get my life in order before Tuesday. On Tuesday I will be having a knee replacement of last year replaced. I am so NOT looking forward to this! But if I have to do this it is a good time of year to have it done. The fort that I volunteer at will be closing for the winter after the candle light tours on Saturday. and I don't have any shows to get ready for any time soon.

I don't know how soon I will be back up on my feet. At the hospital they get you up and moving the day after surgery. This knee has been bad since I was a child so I don't know how soon I will be back to normal. Hmmmm, after thinking about what I just said  I don't want normal. I want better than that!

I also don't know if I will be able to walk over to the studio. So in order to keep weaving I have moved my Dorothy loom with a stand over to the house. I want to weave a run of scarves. Guess I had better get busy and wind that warp!

When I went to out patient physical therapy last year they asked me what my goals were. After pondering a moment I told them I wanted to weave, take care of my goats and run from the Indians! You should have seen their faces! LOL. At the fort we sometimes have the women running when the Indians attack. I still can't do that but who knows. Maybe with this new knee I will be able to. I think I will add one more thing to my goal list. I want to ride horses again.

Well, that is all I have for today. My days are pretty full until the surgery but I will try to blog as soon as I can.
