Ah, the difference a week makes. I am healing from my fractured kneecap surgery, sleeping a bit better, learning how to get around, shower without getting killed and fill my days with more than naps and pills. The pain is getting easier to manage, though evenings and nights are a bit rough. I dread to see the sun go down. My sis is my angel, along with my sweet daughter, husband, sons and friends who are all doing so much for me! I am lucky that I can do digital work, some arty projects, love to read, etc... though between meds, fatigue and pain I have not accomplished much in this first week post-op. No worries, I have plenty of TIME! LOL!
Spring is blossoming outside my window and I long to be outside, but that will have to wait a bit.
I want to thank all of you who have have left words of encouragement, sent sweet surprises and lifted me up in your thoughts and prayers. It means so much to me!
I am thinking positive, being grateful for the fact that this is just a little bumb in the road. I will recover and I know there are so many worse things I could have to face.
Hope your Thursday is filled with hope and joy!

I am really glad you are healing okay!
Life is very strange and just last week my left knee started to ache but by the end of this week I had to go in to the clinic and I am having x-rays taken this coming Monday.
At the moment I am on celebrax, and advil for the pain; I now know a little of what you are dealing with.
With the warm weather and good help at hand you should be feeling better real soon!
Take care,
Hugs Annabelle

Oh,my. It had been awhile since I visited and had no idea about your knee cap. Sounds horrid. Glad to hear the surgery is behind you and things are getting better. Spring is here! Hope you get to enjoy it outside soon!
