Sorry I haven't been around much in the last year but a lot has been happening here.
Our granddaughter came from Sweden to live with us in January and her parents followed in May. It's stressful having so many people in the house and our diet is suffering.
I had knee replacement on August 1 and I'm slowly healing. Walking with a cane now and able to lift my leg on my own without pain but it's feeling swollen and achy. A week after surgery I was in the ER with an infection in the incision but an IV of antibiotics and 10 days of oral and I'm back on the mend. Doc said we caught it early and it didn't get into the deep tissue or to the bone. I also had a painful red circle on my shin that the homecare nurs and PT were concerned about so the ER did an ultrasound and finally diagnosed it as cellulitis.
Been keeping my blood sugars between 90-110 to help healing since I know the higher glucose levels will slow everything down.
PT has been coming to the house 3 times a week and we're now walking outside about 2-3 blocks each time so that's good.
How's everyone here doing?
