Well today is graduation day. I graduate from home health care to regular physical therapy. I am walking well, still with some pain, but I am walking. I see the surgeon on Monday where he will remove the zipper from my leg. That is what she calls the thing on my leg. Dr. Palmer uses a special ROSA robotics system for his knee repairs. This tells some of the process
I am going nuts since we had snow and ice this week, and I can't get outside to clean thing up. Most I could do is to throw salt out to clear a path for Margaret as I don't want to see her break her new ankle. But I can only do what I can. I have decided that I will take next week off as well, since my last two weeks really hasn't bee too restful. However seeing my pitiful paycheck for three days, was a bit small. But I want to get my sleeping better. Still hurts though if I am on my feet for more than 5-10 minutes. I guess I will just have to work it out to increase my ability to stand and walk. I made dinner last night which seemed like a plus. Trying to do more each day. Well I have an appointment with my CPM machine. I know that my Physical THerapist will want to see a higher degree of range of my knee. Had it to 106 on Wednesday so I know she will want more! She is a needy person. But she is good and has a great disposition. I can tell how nervous she gets when she hears the dogs barking locked in separate bedrooms. She said she was bit by a pitt bull at a patient's house. And Mike doesn't like the lockup at all and plays so stubborn about it.
