Yea for arthroscopy!
Here it is. Don't worry, I won't post pix of the incisions or the scars! Yuck!
I had the arthroscopic surgery yesterday and if this post seems a little goofy, it's the Vicodin! Takes care of the pain and a good part of my brain as well, I think. The procedure went well, I'll be on crutches for a few days but the knee seems to be just fine. Love the white TEDs don't you? Thank goodness it's cool here for a few days.
When I stop the Vicodin, I'll be able to sit and knit or maybe do some sewing--I don't think I should use the rotary cutter while I'm legally stoned on Vicodin, do you? I've never cut myself (seriously) with the cutter and even though I have 9 good fingers left on my quilting gloves, I don't think I need to trim my hand to fit. LOL
Jo's arriving home tomorrow afternoon--Don and Lily and I will be there to meet her. I'll be off the Vicodin by then so I'll be ok. Can't wait to see her--she's traveling with another PCV for the entire trip to Mpls which is nice for her. What she'll do when she gets home, other than sleep for awhile, is anyone's guess. I know she's going to be in Austin TX to visit or maybe to stay, but I've cautioned her on making any decisions until she's recovered from jet lag and acclimated a bit to being back in the US. It will be a bigger adjustment than she imagines, and I want her to take all the time she needs.
