BOB's Tuesday Toast - 10/7/14


Here’s to "lucky" days -

May we all have one every once in a while - ;))

===

If you read my blog yesterday -

You know that I was NOT looking forward to the day -

And my appointment with the orthopedic surgeon -

About my knee - ;((

BUT -

I am a VERY lucky lady - ;))

The chip was in the middle -

And the tears have healed nicely -

SOOOO -

My knee is stable -

And NO surgery is required -

YAY!! - ;))

I really like my doctors -

But I don't like my doctor appointments - ;((

They scare me -

For some reason -



But then again - it's probably just me - ;))

I haven't been reading blogs (lots going on) but really glad to hear you don't have to have surgery. I've already been told I need a total knee replacement of the left knee and I told my ortho that it wasn't going to happen until I was in 'constant' pain....
Hope you recover quickly from the injury..

Thanks, Katie - I was SO relieved!! - I smashed it in January - so it has healed already - and apparently it has healed quite nicely - Whew!! - It gets a bit sore now and then if I'm on it too much - but not "constantly" - so that's good - ;))

Sorry to hear about your knee - a total knee replacement doesn't sound like fun - but you might feel a whole lot better after you have it done and get past the physical therapy part - just my opinion - I could be wrong - ;))

I am so happy for you. The good news is always, "No surgery needed!" Take care.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Karen - it was definitely good news - so now I can relax - and SEW - ;))

Glad you got good news. You are NOT the only one who hates going to the doctor! It is a good thing you got a doctor that isn't surgery-happy. My husband was going to one for his foot who wanted him in the hospital for at least three months. I kept telling him to get another opinion, and luckily he did. (I can't imagine what life would have been like had he had to leave his computer for more than a weekend)
Knees tend to complain from time to time once they have had a bit of damage ... even when healed. Take care!

Thanks, Julie - I have known this particular doctor for a LONG time and trust him implicitly but I was NOT looking forward to the appointment - and was truly surprised with the outcome. I had envisioned months of physical therapy - and basically just lucked out. My knee can complain all it wants - I have plenty of ice - haha - ;))

Hi there! Remember me? lol Boy oh boy I know how you feel about those appointments. But really glad you got some good news this time.

Linda J said...

oh I remember when you messed it up months ago. Woohoo for avoiding surgery if not the attendant discomfort that you must still be experiencing or why go to the doctor(s)?

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Hi there! - Yeah, I remember you! - How are you doing?? - Will email you - and thanks - it was VERY good news this time - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda - there really is no attendant discomfort but I did want an x-ray done because I was curious as to what damage I had done to it - if any. Then when it came back with "irregularities" - the doctor suggested an MRI - and then when that came back as "abnormal" - I just had to find out what I had done and how badly I had done it. It gets sore sometimes - but probably because I'm up and down on it too much - and it's as old as I am - haha - ;))
