I did not have the luck of the Irish though... to have won the HGTV Dream Home...even though I entered everyday...twice. It is a beautiful home in Utah. I have been watching that channel a lot this past week as I recover from knee surgery. I was starting to get around a little better and actually did a little housework the other day. Yesterday and today I felt I had a setback.. because my knee hurt a lot and I felt like I needed to go back to using the cane again just to move it at all. So I called my Dr's nurse and told her about it. She said she thinks I just over did it and that I should take it easy over the weekend. I get my stitches out on Tuesday. I also got to voice my opinion to the surgery center about my intense pain after the surgery. They said that I should have called the exchange if I was in that much pain. I realize now that my grievance about the aftercare has nothing to do with them. They run an out-patient service. And for the biggest majority of people...this arthroscopic surgery is easily managed at home, with little recovery time. It just did not work out that way for me. I guess I was just ill prepared for the worse. I will know better next time...if there is a next time. Hope not. After I get my stitches out, I do want to tell my Dr. that I was not expecting that kind of pain really because his nurse told my daughter that I would have very little recovery time. Just limping for a couple of days. So funny..that when I called her today and told her I was still having trouble...she said..."Well..it has only been a couple of weeks hasn't it. You are just rushing it too much. " (It has been one week) Different tune...but she probably talks to so many people she doesn't remember what she tells them. He is one very busy Dr. with 2 locations and lots of patients.
I have started a new knitting project from this magazine that I bought a while back.
That is about all of the chitter chatter I will report today. Have a fun St. Patrick's Day tomorrow. I will be sitting around with my feet up...knitting or reading.
