Just popping in to give ya'll an update and let ya'll know that all went well with my knee scope yesterday. In the big scheme of things, this is just a small blip, but I haven't had much experience with hospitals or surgeries and to be honest, I was a little anxious. A few years ago I attended a local conference and purchased this T-shirt:
I should have bought another because I'm wearing this one out. I wanted to share the accompanying Scripture that put my mind and heart as ease:
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
I know that many of you are going through trials and tribulations and I pray that this too brings ya'll some measure of peace and comfort.
My doctor removed cartilage shrapnel from my knee, cleaned up my shredded patella, and sent me home.
My knee was so unstable before the surgery that I was sure a ligament was compromised, but I'm no doctor - I'll ask him about that when I go back for my follow-up.
I've been given orders to keep it elevated for 48 hours and ice it a lot so this is my view for the time being:
More reading on the agenda:
And I'm beginning to plan our Fall Cow Works menu as we begin weaning the first week in October. I'm digging through this box of saved recipes today - before Pinterest 😄 - in search of some new treasures.
I'm being a model patient as I need to be back on my feet for that. DH is an awesome nurse...bossy, but sweet. 😉 Between he and Skeet, I'm in good hands...and paws
I was even served supper in bed - that's a first. I've never eaten a meal in bed and I'm not a fan, but it was delicious:
So all is well. I'm behaving, following the rules, and staying out of trouble, but I'm not liking it much. 48 hours isn't really that long, but I'm looking forward to moving on to the next phase and finding blessings in the moment.
