They released me today.

This has been an interesting 9 days to say the least.  I went in for the knee replacement surgery on Feb 4 and that went fine.  Later in the week my blood pressure dropped very low so they wanted to hold me over for a day or so to make sure all was well.  It was.

I heard they were going to release me on Friday, but doctor decided I needed some special therapy since we were in a motor home.   I must admit, it was worth it since I learned a lot of moves to help make it easier to get around.

Now the difficult part is ahead to strengthen the leg muscles and make sure I regain all my flexibility.  I know it will be hard, but I don't have anything else to do all the days ahead.  The big time consumer with be placing my leg in a device that exercises the leg up and down and back.  I have to use it 3 times a day for 2 hours each time.  Not fun.

We are watching a movie now and I only have time for a few lines.  It's nice to be back in our rolling home.

  4. If you never listen to your son but one time, make sure it is now since I have some experience with knee surgery! Follow through with the PT till the very end! I didn't...and, as you know, my professional soccer career suffered dearly for it. :) Hope you are feeling better soon and can get out here to see us! Grant has been asking on a weekly basis for the past two months..."When will Grandma and Grandpa be here again?" Much love and a speedy recovery!
