Still here...

Yes I am still hanging around!
My knee replacement surgery  on May 22 went well.
Surgeon was well pleased with my healing at the 2 week check up.
He removed 40 staples that day.
Last Friday was my last day of in home PT.

Monday, yesterday, I begin PT with a practice in town. Oh Boy!
Been a struggle dealing with some pain, fatigue and such but moving forward at a good clip!
Still have a ways to go but just doing it day by day.
No longer on a walker but use cane as needed!
I am doing everything I am told to do so I can get back all my mobility as soon as possible!
They say 6mths so I am beginning to think they may be right... hahaha!

DH has been a wonderful care giver. Between DH and my sweet niece I have had great care.
Son and friends have helped out when they could as well.
So no complaints in that area!

Water damage repairs also finished up last Friday!! Yes!
Had some issues with some stuff but got it worked out.
House is still in disarray though!
DH and son placed the sewing studio furniture back in where I wanted it.
As for all the rest packed up in totes/boxes...they are stacked up and will remain so till I can set the room up again!
Sewing studio is all freshly painted and new flooring. Had to replace sub-flooring as well.

Living room and dining room we hope to have back to normal in a week or so.
They also had to do some painting in entry and living room.
Had new drywall , sub-floor and then new flooring in entry and coat closet.
Last was the carpet which padding was replaced then carpet was re stretched and cleaned.
Glad to have all that behind us!
 Ready for life to sort of get back to our kind of normal around here!!

Thanks so much for thinking of me with your thoughts and prayers!
