6 Long Weeks


Christmas is over and done with and I am 2 weeks down the track from my leg surgery.  It turned out a lot more painful than I thought it would be and I under estimated just how little I was going to be able to do whilst I heal.  Having had the tibia broken, cut, moved and then reattached with screws into the correct position and a new knee cap has meant that I am not allowed to weight bear or bend the knee for 6 weeks and my day and nights have gone from the recliner to the bed.  The brace I wear with metal rods is very constricting but I am getting used to it. Talk about boring !  This is the view out into my outdoor area from my chair.  Although I never tire of gazing out there !


My little hospital style over the bed table goes from the chair to the bedroom and has proven to be invaluable.  I already use it so much already but with this latest hiccup it has been a life saver !


Hubby has been wonderful - He is on the other end of the vacuum cleaner around the corner. it's been a tough few weeks for all of us but him especially.  


So as I sit here I have plenty of time to think about things and have a firm plan in place for my crafting life in 2018.  I have lots of tutorial ideas and have even managed to make a start on a few of them ready to be uploaded in the coming weeks.  

Now I must prepare for the marathon effort of having a shower as I am off to the surgeon this afternoon for a post operative appointment.  Until next time.

Hugs,

Fee xx

Oh Fee......I feel your pain! I hope you look after yourself so as to recover quickly. I am 8 months post knee replacement, complications have seen me in a moonboot for 6 months now, my fibula was stress fractured following a knee manipulation in June, trying to weight bear after 4 mths in boot has seen me fracture 3 metatsal bones as my bones had become soft due to not healing quickly.......this last 4 days I'm to try weight bear using 2 crutches for 5 minutes twice daily.......I'm petrified of more fractures! Meanwhile I manage to sew for short time frames at the machine and also dream of being able to do more. Take care....with my best wishes for a Happy New Year and creating time!
