Four Weeks…

Tomorrow will be four weeks since my fall.  My knee is doing great.  Still discolored and swollen.  My legs and ankles are huge by the end of the work day so I end up coming straight home to put my legs up.  Elevation is my friend.

My HurryCane has been my constant companion.  We have a love hate relationship.  I don’t want to use it.  It gets in my way.  Have you ever tried to carry a lunch, coffee, keys and use a can to try to get down four steps to leave your house.  It is a pain.  I have to leave the coffee on the railing, go down the stairs and then lean over to grab my coffee.  I’m usually fine in the morning and don’t need the cane but by the end of the day, I’m happy for the extra steadiness.

Other than my knee, things are going well.  The school year is finding its groove and the team of interpreters I work with is great.  We get along swimmingly.  There isn’t a day that they don’t make me laugh.

Jerry and I haven’t been doing much due to my knee.  I’m resting up so I can make sure to go the Jacksonville Jaguar opening game.  I missed both pre-season games. Also, we have a trip coming up to Chicago.  I’m so excited because we are going to see Hamilton!  “Not throwing away my shot!”

Anyway, looking to the long weekend to keep resting up my knee.  I see the doctor next week and I’m actually looking forward to doing some physical therapy to get my full range of motion back.

Happy Labor Day weekend!
