On Tuesday I had a knee arthroscopy. The surgeon said six weeks recovery time and so far it is going well. Day 1 I was in bed and only hobbling to the bathroom. Day 2 I was up and hobbling around with a cane. Day 3 more hobbling but exhausted. Today the swelling is noticeably down and there is little pain. Here is the gruesome photo. Don’t look if you’re squeamish.
The surgeon told me I had a “large meniscus tear”. I am looking forward to being pain free as it has been almost constant for the last three months. I want to get out and exercise and maybe even run again!
Yesterday morning I sewed a little. I put a round on the Mystery Round Robin block for May (can’t show…) and I made these two blocks for Billy for the April 6 inch block swap (only a little behind…)
And then exhaustion hit and I had to lie down on the couch. Later in the day I thought “It’s Friday Night Sew In. I must get up and do some sewing.” I wanted to work on the quilting for my Friends with Benefits gift (which is a little bit more behind). Because it is some fine work I wanted my reading glasses. I looked for them for half an hour, thinking they must have fallen on the floor when I took them off to answer the phone in the morning. I finally discovered them, in their case, and realized I actually hadn’t used them when sewing that morning!
At that point I realized I was probably too tired to try and sew. Instead I looked at Bloggers' Quilt Festival posts and viewed a lot of lovely quilts. I hope you have the time to browse them.
