It's the weekend and i'm...

resting in bed after having a knee scope done yesterday.  Everything went well, and i've been able to get around more than I thought I would be.  I'm only putting a limited amount of weight on that leg and they had me start exercises today as well.  I've done those only 1 time today but will do them again shortly.  I know they want me to start with 3 times a day but I tell you they take a lot out of me to do them.  I'm icing it lots too to help with the inflammation and taking tylenol 3 and ibuprofen as well.  I'm trying to stay on top of the pain so it doesn't get out of hand but today I ended up sleeping for a couple of hours and when I woke I knew I had missed a dose. 

I will be working on my knitting this weekend hoping to get this project done as it is a Christmas gift.  It seems to be taking me a while but I've never done something like this and therefore I'm still learning.  It seems to be turning out pretty nicely and I know if I continue to work on items like this I will get better at them.

I'm almost done our Christmas shopping although there are a few things yet to get.  I had hoped to be done before my surgery but it didn't work out that way.  I'm more worried though about my husbands family christmas get together at my daughters house next Sat.  I feel bad that everything got switched to her place due to not knowing how I would be feeling and how much I will be getting around by then.  I will have to try to get out with her this week sometime if possible so we can get the groceries we will be needing and help her with as much as I can.  Thank you Kandi for doing this on such short notice, I really appreciate it!

Well, just wanted to stop in and do a quick post!  Have a good weekend and great week!
