OLD

Ok, so today is the dreaded 60th and I have survived waking up and don't think I look or feel that old. But I am and I have to say I hate it! Ugh! Yuck! Blah! I could go on a lot longer, but to what end. I am not going to go back to being 59! So suck it up and move on.

With that off my chest, I will go on to knee news. My new knee is coming along nicely thank you very much. I have 115 - 120 degrees of range and don't have to go to physio any more. He says just continue with my exercises at home and I will do fine. I see the specialist on Sept.13 and hopefully will get a date for the next knee to be done. I am doing my exercises 3 times a day, rubbing lotions and creams on the scar to help it heal faster and we even bought a recumbent stationary bike which I use once a day for 10 minutes. I imagine I will get better at that, but I will say if I do it too long, my knee suffers that night when I am in bed. So I am taking it slowly but surely. And the biggest news of all is that I can now drive. I have good range and mobility so the physio guy and I decided that I could drive last Wednesday.......3 weeks post op! I must say I found that to be very hard, depending on others, usually John, to drive me places. But now I am able to go and do what I want and when I want!

On the knitting front, I am making great progress on the Mystery Stole 3 project. Because of surgery and other reasons, I got behind on the clues, which came out every week. So when they were posting the last few clues and it developed into a totally different half than the first half ( it looks like a wing), I decided, apparently with lots of others, to make the symetrical version and repeat the first four clues again and then join the two halves. So I am well into the second half and with the US Open coming up this next two weeks, I can see myself finishing it by then. Still no pics, maybe next time.

I am off to do my exercises and bike so,

Bye bye for now.

Happy belated birthday! Glad your knee is healing well.

Congrats on the next grandchild-to-be! Hope you get to knit girly things. My SIL found out she's having a boy, dang it! I was so looking forward to a little girl. I don't think she'll have another one, I'll be surprised if she does. She isn't having a "fun" pregnancy at all!
