I survived knee surgery!

Well, it's done. I had a partial lateral meniscectomy on Friday. Sounds painful huh? Well, it's not feeling great I should say. I've been on pain pills which is definitely helping matters, but they make me want to lay down all day in bed. I started my physical therapy yesterday and I believe it has helped my knee heal faster, but I still have a ways to go. I'm supposed to do knee exercises everyday and if it weren't for my mother-in-law making me do them today I probably would have just laid on the couch some more. I'm trying to be more mobile since that's supposed to help the knee heal faster as well. I have two weddings in the next coming months that I need to be ready for so I'm going to make sure I follow all of the docs specific instructions.

And a blog post really isn't complete without a photo so here are two examples of what I did to myself. I'm still trying to come up with a more exciting story on how this happened in the first place. Anyone want to offer any creative suggestions?

Glad the surgery went well. Yes - do your exercises, young lady!! They really will help you heal faster and keep better range of motion.

Hmm... better story... I'd go with something heroic, like:
You fell... pushing someone out of the path of a runaway car/train/boat? rescuing kittens and puppies from a burning building? I don't know. Something like that. :)

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Glad you are on the road to recovery!! Let me know if you need any help at your weddings. I would be happy to 2nd shoot or carry your bag or whatever to help!

You were rushing to the scene to aid an elderly woman being mugged.... You got there in time and were apprehending the mugger when you twisted your knee. The dirtbag is behind bars now. :)
