This past week I have been recovering from my knee surgery. It's been a lot of sleeping, a little bit of pup snuggling and a lot of boredom.
My surgery went really well on Wednesday, despite my nerves getting the best of me. The doctor said my cartilage was able to be repaired instead of removed which is a great thing for the future of my knee. This means I am not as likely to have as many problems with arthritis and fluid buildup in years to come. What this does mean is that my recovery time is 6 weeks on crutches without any weight on my left knee. Doctors orders, and I am going to make sure I don't let him down.
With this being said, I think I am going to hang out at my parents house a little longer. I am going to take advantage of always having someone here to help me with something...just in case. My parents house is perfect for the injured and the elderly with a first floor livable space, a ramp up to their front door, a walk in shower and a retired dad that is able to help me with anything I might need and keep me company. Six weeks is a long time, and I think I will feel more stable on crutches and ready to go home after spending the first two weeks here at my parents.
This means I am hoping to return to my studio space next week! My lead time will change to accommodate for my gimpy leg, but I will be excited to have things to do and fabric to play with.
As for now, my dad has a mini sewing station set up in their dining room for me to work on simple projects. It's so cute; I sew, then he irons.
I'm really thankful for my parents and appreciate all the texts, comments and emails. The pups and husband visit me and Stanlee even got the special treat of staying the night with me on Saturday. I think he's really missed his momma ;)
More updates to come.
