I just heard from the hospital and I am to report in at 7:45 in the morning.
This morning I started my day with a 7:20am appointment with my massage therapist and it was heaven. Once home my CPM machine arrived. CPM stands for Continuous Passive Movement. The doctor wants me to use it 8 to 10 hours a day. I'll have one in the hospital as well. They start it out bending your knee 80 degrees and in the 3 weeks I'll be using it I will need to get it up to 120 degrees bending my knee. I'll be in PT as well during that time and for a few weeks after.
Here is my new best friend:
|Maybe I should call it Captain - as it's going to be in charge of me for a while, haha|
While I was having fun in my sewing room and starting a new and very special quilt, CR was busy outside. We bought a new outside light fixture to replace the old one. New siding just required a new fixture:
And this morning we got a very pleasant surprise - Scotchie and Rascal were laying in the sun together and a few minutes later all 3 of the boys were playing with each other. We still may have some tussles, but it's getting better with each day and it's so nice to see.
|Scotchie and Rascal|
Rascal LOVES toys more than any cat we've ever had and he is constantly playing. Our other boys have gotten in on the action, while they're not as playful as Rassie, they've been having some fun too. Chanceman turned 11 this past week and he's been chasing around the house with Rassie.
Well that is it for now. I'll be in the hospital about 3 days and once I'm home and can focus on the screen I will post how I'm doing.
Happy Stitches and Hugs!!
