no super powers yet.... but I'm working on it... or.... she made it!

I'm alive! Home! and I've a got a brand new knee... sounds great right? Well, my new knee doesn't work too well yet... it hurts and I've got a lot of work to do to get it up to speed... I won't be blogging much in the next few weeks... reading or writing... but you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I see each of your warm, smiling faces in my minds eye as I concentrate, groan, moan and screach my way to good knee agility.... hugs to you all... see ya soon... from down here in French Lique.... Dixie

I'm glad the surgery went well! Do what the PT says. My husband tore his rotator cuff...not enough for surgery, but the therapy had horrible pain and the PT says pain always comes first!

Well Dixie sweetie, you will be up to speed and back to normal before you know it. Just do what the therapist tells you to and it will be find, just don't do like me and hit her when she forces your knee back...lol..Bless her heart, I didn't mean to, it was just a reflex when she shoved the knee back farther than I could stand. I did apology and she excepted and picked at me from then on.
Will be thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.

I've been there...it feels like you'll never lift your leg again but you're past that point by now. Anyway, you won't believe how great it is a year from now. Take your pain meds....and save some for when you're feeling better...haha.
