Life has been slow here. The most excitement I have is getting from the bedroom to the living room without help. Dependent on others 24/7 is not the norm for me. I know with time this will change, but for now I am thankful for family, neighbors, and friends willing to assist with my recovery. Just over a week since surgery. If progress is similar to the past week, I hope to be using only a crutch by next weekend.
July 18th. First Anniversary for Jen and Jerod. Can't believe a year has gone by. Check out their blog, Jewel of the Prairie to see some photos from their wedding last year. Luckily they have moved closer to us, and I am fortunate that Jen will be able to assist me for the next few days.
Finally, another ray of happiness during the turmoil. Haven't met him yet, but have a new granddog named Max. Check out the photos. Hope he is as nice as he seems to be.
Came home at 2pm this afternoon. Took more prep than I ever expected. Jim and Kevin have been quite cooperative. After asking Kevin to help me move my leg for the fourth time, I think he realized how little I can do.
Day, by day. Start physical therapy in the morning. Wish me luck!
Looking forward to my knee replacement surgery tomorrow. Nearly five years since I first realized that things were taking a turn for the worse. The day is finally here, and I can't wait to be able to play with my grandkids, and do more things with Jim and my family. So if you don't hear from me for a few days, that is why. I am going in for a better life.
