I want to thank everyone for their get well wishes and all the “crossed fingers” and “pressed thumbs” (that’s what we say in Germany). I wish I could tell you the surgery was a success…but I don't really know much until later today when I have my Doctors appointment.
All I know is that they fixed (removed?) meniscus and did some smoothing. ( whatever that means??) and when I woke I had a drainage tube in my knee and it hurt like hell! Last surgery I had a block set on my leg so I felt no pain…this time no blockage and I can tell you I was ring the bell for the nurse really fast. Of course the pain interfusion made me sick…the pain drops made me dizzy and nauseous…it was a wonderful hospital stay.
Needless to say the next days at home weren’t much better…for some reason my body didn’t handle the anesthetic so well this time….guess it’s a sign of getting old…my body needs longer to bounce back !
I can tell you laying around with your leg up is BOREING!!
A girl can only watch so much mindless TV, stitch or read…I need to sew on my machine!
Hopefully my leg will be better in a few days and life can get back to normal ( whatever that is)
I'm off to the doctors…I’ll post the next Sewing room SewAlong Project later today. …don’t forget to send ne your finished pictures!!
