Venturing out

This morning I drove myself to church.  For me, it's 15 miles one-way.  I have been out of church since my knee went out on June 1st.  It felt so good to get out and especially going to church.  Now I feel I am on my way to recovery.  It was hard to sit and when I got up my knee was a little stiff.  But I loved being there even when I could not get up and down.  That will come in time.  So I thank God for my blessings and watching over me.

My 5th week of physical therapy brought more progress with me driving my car for the 1st time since my knee surgery.  My PT, Caleb, was excited about it.  It gave me a feeling of being independent again. A couple of exercises were added to my exercise routine.  So I say to all this "onward"  to more progress.

Knee Surgery

It is now one month since my knee replacement.  It has not been easy, but progress is being made.  I will be starting my 5th week of physical therapy on Monday.  The therapists are very good and manage to get my knee moving (of course there is pain).  I have progressed from the walker to the cane.  I have slept more than I ever have and I find my focus is not there to work on my quilts.  However, I will be going on the Renegade Quilter's Retreat in a couple of weeks.  Maybe the retreat is what I need to get motivated again.  So I wish all happy quilting and enjoy your summer.
