I am back home and blogging again

Two weeks ago today I had surgery on my left knee -- the Total Knee Replacement. I am doing fine after four nights in the hospital followed by five more at a rehab facility. I have been home since last Saturday.

I can get around using a walker, ride in the car and do some physical therapy. And I rest a lot. Because there was also some ligament repair necessary I am wearing a rather large leg brace for the next six weeks or so.

Despite being addled by drugs most of the time, I managed to keep a daily journal of this medical adventure. I will start posting it soon.

Glad you are able to get around some now, Kenny. I am also looking forward to reading all the details. We are settling in for another snow storm tonight.

Hey, sorry for not seeing this earlier (lack of internet connection sort of inhibits blog reading). I'm glad you're getting around. Will be thinking about you.
