I am home from Illinois to see my Doc for a referral to "ortho guy". I'm not used to being a passenger in the bat truck but there was no way I could flex the right foot and knee to handle the land barge.
So I got to "front seat drive" while my friend ferried me the 150+ miles home for my doctor appointment tomorrow. I was pretty good with the whole "keep your foot elevated for 48 hours", though with the spotted bruising on the sides of my upper torso from the crutches, I look less like "Victoria's Secret" and more like "101 Dalmatians". But I'm getting around and I could even stand on it for a moment today so it IS healing. Yay!
Barkley was picked up on the way in. He loves the friends he stays with but he's always happy to be home.
Tomorrow will be likely an MRI on the knee and picking up packages that are waiting at the UPS store. I have a couple holiday cooking and cookie posts to come up though even if I didn't get any Christmas shopping done this week as planned. But I'm not complaining. The knee will heal, I have friends, both furry and non furry, making sure I'm safe, a warm, snug house to stay in, and, even if I have to hop all the way up there, plans over the holidays with Midwest Chick, Mr. B., and the Og family.
Thank you all for your well wishes and your own knee stories.
