Design Wall Monday - 10/6/14

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

On my design wall this week -


My version of Easy Street - HERE - ;))

Yeah, I know -

It's the same as last week -

And I still need to get the left side together - ;))

I didn't mess with it much this past week -

I spent most of my time trying to psyche myself up -

For an appointment today with an orthopedic surgeon -

For a "consult" on my knee - ;((

I smashed it HARD back in January - HERE -

And due to "circumstances" -

Couldn't even think about having x-rays/MRI/surgery back then -

So I finally got around to having an x-ray taken -

And it seems that the x-ray had some "irregularities" -

And the follow-up MRI was "abnormal" - ;((

I apparently tore some stuff and chipped my tibia - ;((


Some of my questions today for the orthopedic surgeon -
(And the probable answers- )

Have the tears healed themselves by now? -
(More than likely - but they probably need to be "cleaned up" - )

How big is the chip? -
(Big enough to become a problem if not dealt with - )

Should it be removed? -
(Probably - you ARE talking to a surgeon - and that's what they do - surgery - )

Will he be able to do whatever he needs to do using a "minimally invasive" technique? -
(Sure hope so - )

Or are we talking full-blown knee surgery? -
(Sure hope not - )

How long will the recovery take? -
(The shorter the better obviously - )

Outpatient surgery - and a couple of days of taking it easy? -
(Oh, please say this one - )

Or a couple of days in the hospital and six months of physical therapy? -
(OH, CRAP!! - )

And will I be able to SEW while I recuperate? -
(Probably won't feel like it - even if I could - )

I am so NOT looking forward to this day -

Or his answers - ;((

Wish me luck - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Good luck with everything! If you don't take care of yourself, then you cannot quilt! I love Easy Street! Hoping to make that myself some day.

Thanks, Jennifer - you come up as a "no-reply" commenter - so I will have to respond to your comment here. You REALLY should make an "Easy Street" - it is one of my favorite patterns - so many pieces - I LOVE IT - and may even make another one some day - but I'm so slow - don't hold your breath - ;))

And I lucked out on my knee - the chip was in the middle of everything - and it has all healed nicely - so NO surgery is required - YAY!! - turned out to be a great day after all - ;))

Obviously I am behind in reading--all that energizer bunny sewing, I guess. Will read the next post to see how that appt came out with fingers crossed.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Haha - you can't possibly be as behind in your reading as I am. I have caught up on maybe three of the blogs that I read - everyone (including you) are like little energizer bunnies - and I wish that I could comment on every single post - but that would be virtually impossible - ;))
