I think I have been making really good progress in my rehabilitation process. It has been eight weeks since my total knee replacement. I have been doing my home exercises twice a day and going to physical therapy three times a week. I just last week was able to pedal all the way around on an exercise bike. I now can go into my basement rec room and get on my recumbent exercise bike and do it for six minutes twice a day. Do I complain....no.
Friday's therapy was especially difficult. I didn't take a pain pill like they tell me to because, I had to drive myself since my daughter the chauffeur wasn't feeling well. I did everything and then some. I iced my knee when I got home. It was feeling okay. I thought I would just try Tylenol at bed time since it was still feeling okay. Let me tell you, at two o'clock in the morning, my left leg was so sore I couldn't stand it. I remembered what I had done with three pound weights that day and figured that was the culprit. The PT kept pushing me...WITH NO BREAKS!
So at two a.m. I started plotting. I had to think of something to reward his efforts. This is what I came up with:

I think when I go to therapy tomorrow, if he isn't sitting at his desk, I'm just going to hang it from his bulletin board and remain anonymous. I wonder if he will think it was me.
I just want to welcome all the new people to my blog. A BIG THANK YOU for the wonderful comments about my BBD finish. Thanks for stopping by again.
Keep on stitching.
