Friday is here again!
The quality work really of my orthopedic surgeon really proved itself yesterday morning as I took a very nasty fall on my front steps. While shoveling the snow off I slipped on the ice (under snow) giving both my knee and ankle a very painful twist. I had a total knee replacement less than a year ago and that it really scared me as I immediately thought the worse – that it may have “torn” apart. I got up after a few minutes and to my surprise the knee felt good and solid, surprisingly solid as I walked around on it; couldn’t believe it. I know for certain that had it been the other knee some serious damage would have occurred. I am walking around with no discomfort to the knee, but as for my sprained ankle (on the same leg) that is another story: swelling, much icing and Tylenol required.
So, I’m basically trying to stay off my foot. Yet there is a strong call from the shop to continue working on JoAnn’s next jewelry box. We’ll see what happens.
Thoughts entering one's mind need not exit one's mouth!
As I age my memory fades .... and that's a load off my mind!
