Minnie, Mack and Mario have basically not left my side. I hang out on the couch all day and only go up/down the stairs in the morning and the evening. Mack is usually by my feet. Mario is somewhere near my knees and Minnie is usually nearer my head, like on the back of the couch. Their warmth is so soothing! Hu-dad is working from home so I have plenty to help!
|What we do all day.|
After surgery, my knees were swollen, and about the size of my thighs. Very attractive!
The writing on my knees was for the surgeon. Since I was having a different procedure done on each knee, they were labeled so there would be no mistakes in the OR! The marker turned out to be permanent. And I have to wear the white no blood clots stockings. A real fashion statement. LOL. A follow up doctor appointment is scheduled tomorrow, so hopefully, the stockings will be history and the stitches will come out.
I now know that I can not tolerate most pain killers...Percoset and Vicodin. And Advil causes me to have intestinal disturbances. My daughter said medicinal marijuana is used for nausea and pain killers. Wonder if it has worked for any one in Blogville? It is available via prescription.
We haven't been able to check in with most of our blog friends. We hope in the next week or so to get back to normal or close to it.
Our son, Josh, is back home for a short time before moving to Hawaii. Minnie and Mack were so happy to see him! Mario had never met him and liked him immediately!
Stay cool and enjoy the summer.
Kathy, Minnie, Mack and foster Mario
