I must admit, I have not felt much like keeping this blog for at least eight months. In fact, the time between February and right now has been challenging. Last spring started with the fashion statement you see below. What are those?
Well, if you guessed hospital socks, you guessed correctly!!! These dull socks are only matched by the standard hospital gown and mask.
Marked and prepped, my right knee found itself under the able care of my surgeon, Dr. Bradley Boyd,
…and not long afterward, the new knee was up and mobile.
All the surgery bruhaha was followed by some seriously long and arduous time in physical therapy.
Just when it seemed as though the entire process would never end, seven months had passed, and I was able to go to the mall and enjoy the sights….and show off my knee….
to you know who!!!!
Today is the last day of the year and time to express thanks for its blessings and look forward to embracing the blessings of the new year. I am grateful for another successful surgery and continued good health. I’ve had to depend on a number of you over the past months…thank you Renay and Cookie….thank you Dyane and Val, my voices of reason…. thanks Terance for making me laugh…thank you Tracey….thanks to the memory of my dear friend, Joyce Lightner, who was a lover of life….thank you Sarah and Ashleigh for keeping me motivated….a big thank you to Thom and Cal for never leaving my side….
Gratitude to all who support my blog, and if you are reading right now, many thanks for being patient with me. As always, a loving thanks to my traveling companion, my husband, Bruce.
This Unseasoned Traveler has experienced the inside of hospitals and PT clinics more than anyplace else this year….not at all exotic, BUT I am hoping that 2022 finds us all healthy and happy and ready to hit the road. Look for me in the new year…until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
