Posts Tagged ‘knee surgery’

This has been the longest break I have ever taken from the Life of a Daily Painter blog. I had knee replacement 12 days ago and this one was a little tougher than the one I had four years ago on the other knee. But I’m up and going. Heading back to class this morning and hoping that I have the stamina to get through it. I know that slow and easy wins this race but when you are self-employed you don’t get the luxury of going too slow. So wish me luck as I head back to work. Lincoln has to sit today out which will not make him happy but he’ll be able to join me soon. Thanks for all the well wishes. It’s not pretty but I’m getting there!!!

I have been away from the blog for a week or so because last Thursday I had a partial knee replacement and am home recovering.   This one has been a little different from the one I had 4 years ago….but I am doing well and getting better slowly.  I started PT Monday and go again today.  I am anxious to get up and going and am a little impatient that it is slower than I want.  Many thank to all my friends who have come by, walked Lincoln, brought food and sent well wishes for my recovery.  I appreciate it so much.  And a special shout out to Sister who came from Georgia and took care of me.  She made everything so much easier and being spoiled was really nice!  I’m sharing with you today this special art…a Get Well card…that my sweet little friend Charlotte made for me.  It is my new favorite thing!

Yesterday was 5 weeks since my knee surgery.  The recovery is going well.  I went with a procedure called Makoplasty which helped to speed recovery.  (Read more here.)  PT has been hard but worth it.  I am sure that Jed and Lincoln’s help has made all the difference in my therapy.  🙂

Patience is not my strong suit so I feel like I should be all well by now but I know I have weeks to go before I’m able to do everything again but I am well on my way.  And I am back at work-The Studio full time.

Of course, having a snake bite me during week 4 didn’t help the healing.  (That’s a whole other story!)

wp-1451393503713.jpgThe reason my posts have been a little sporadic this past week is that a week ago I had knee surgery.  And because I am “recovering”  I have not been able to create the way I normally do.  I am hoping to be back at The Studio later this week to do a little catching up.  It’s hard to sit still….at least for me!
