Ten Days Post Surgery (With Pictures)

Ten days post-surgery at this point and she seems to be doing really well. Pain has been minimal and she is back making things for sale at where she has holiday as well as everyday items like quilts, baby blankets, stuffed animals, etc. over there. The picture below shows her working this morning while doing the rehab work thanks to the CMP machine. The machine is at the ninety degree mark according to the little digital hands device located at the end of the machine.

As of today, she is up to ninety degrees of flex in the knee having gone up five degrees every day since the day after surgery. What pain she has remains very low and only happens on the inside of her knee cap. She sees the doctor Thursday to have the stitches removed and discuss where she goes from here. When he did the surgery, he said she would be on crutches for four weeks and could not put any weight at all on that leg. She wants to be rid of the crutches now!


And, of course, her cat, Duncan, likes to sleep in it now when she isn’t using it. He also does not much care for being woken up either.

Good news indeed, Kevin.

Thanks, Patti. It is indeed.

I also just realized that again my son took what looks like a slanted picture. We do not live in the old set for the Riddler or Penguin of Batman during Adam West times.
