Thank you for all you kind words and prayers and well wishes for Brad. It hurts to see him write that he realizes that he could 'gain his wings'. He does everything he can for his kids, even when it hurts him to do so. I had my hard cry and heartfelt discussion with God last night as I have done so many times in the last two years. I love that man so much and credit his strength for providing for his family in whatever way he can. He is going on vacation after their trip to NY next month. They are going somewhere with the ocean or beach. He told me that since we never had vacations as Marg and I were always working, that beaches and oceans he find his peace at. And Kati likes them as well. So I hope all goes well for them.
Went to the doctor this morning, got the zip-line taken off my leg and replaced them with sterry strips. They took x-rays and says the knee looks great, and my range of motion is good as well. Got a cortisone shot in my left leg to keep it as good as we can. They said if my right knee heals as well, we can discuss replacing the left on in three months. Told me that no driving until I see them in 4 weeks. I was hoping in a couple of weeks. I have 4 weeks of therapy twice a week, and they want to keep me on the pain pills while I am doing the therapy, as she said I should expect pain while we go through that. But it felt good to get out of the house for the first time in three weeks! And it was sunny! Sorry my thoughts are pretty scrambled today. Good thing I am not working. They told me I can go back to work when I feel up to it. But told me not to sit for extended periods of time. I will need to get up and walk and exercise every hour or so.
