Wednesday Morning Knee Update

I got a whole lot of sleep last night, with long bouts of Zs going from 9:30-12:30, 1:30-4:30, and 5:00-8:30. I think I might be close to caught up on my rest and that makes EVERYTHING else a little better.

On top of that, the new medicine seems to be effective as for the first time this morning I felt distinct improvement in my pain and range of motion. I can stand closer to straight up (with only a little support from a crutch or nearby wall), my knee was not nearly as stiff and achy after the night’s rest, and I have a LITTLE bit of strength returning to my lower leg kicking motion.

There’s not a lot left to tell, since I did an evening update yesterday. I’m still nowhere near ready to go out and about or back to work. Moving around the 800 sq-ft apartment is still slow going, though it doesn’t exhaust me the way it did the last few days. I guess I’ll just have to be patient and let the healing take its course.

This being Wednesday, that means I won’t be making it to BBQ Lunch … but I’ve already had some very kind offers to bring BBQ Lunch to me! So that should be delicious AND sociable.

I’m still supposed to keep my leg elevated as much as possible, but I’m also at a place where I think I can sit comfortably at my drawing table for a while … so I’m going to see if I can make at least an hour or two’s progress on some of the projects that are gasping for my attention.

Thanks for all the moral support over on Facebook. It really does give me a boost to see all of your likes (and other reactions) and comments.
