 My knee it all it's beauty...I will spare you the stapples.
Today it was a blood draw and PT, which went very well.  6 new exercises to add to the mix.
Watched a movie, had many visitors.  Fresh eggs from Janice's chickens and a casserole from Louise.
 Madonna brought up a hanging planter that her grandson made and a
gourmet dinner!
 My pals really know about cooking good food.
 Gary did chores, then Jen came up later to do Abbe's leg.

 They had picture taking duty....our wild roses are starting to bloom.
 Lily was in and out today.
I forgot to tell you that I got a call from Paris yesterday!  That has never happened before!
My friend Judy and her husband were over there for business and are now going on a vacation.  Sure was surprised to be checked on from there.  Some amazing friends....
Thanks everybody!


  1. Oh MY!!!! Hope your knee mends real soon - but with all the good caretaking thats happening from all angles, maybe this knee vacay' is kind of a good deal...well, until you have to get up to find the 'facilities' !!!! :) Heal soon!

  7. Your knee is beautiful. It does not appear swollen and you are very well surrounded ! All is okay !

  8. Great!! You're finally on your way to recovery- having the surgery over!
    Did you get one of those fantastic Ice machines that not only keep the effected area cool but palpate it too? It can used on horses as well.
