Last August I almost fell off of our back step. My toe got caught in the other pant leg as I stepped off the top step, amazingly I was able to right myself and didn't fall, but I damaged my right knee in that process. I didn't realize until April the extent of the damage after an MRI.
Mark and I traveled to Fort Frances on Monday, had to take a long detour as the highway to Atikokan was closed due to a large sink hole. We arrived at the hospital in Fort Frances just before my appointment, it was a long drive. I met with Dr. Porter Monday night, went through what he was going to do on Tuesday.
Fort Frances is a gorgeous community, I am impressed!
I was to be at the hospital at 12:30 on Tuesday for my 1:30 surgery. Unfortunately there were complications with the surgery before mine, so I was around 3 hours late going in. My surgery went well, I was a little nauseous afterwards but at the doctors urging we finally left Fort Frances at 6:30 and drove to my sisters in Thunder Bay. I was lucky there was so much freezing injected into my knee that I didn't have pain until after we got home on Wednesday.
I am slowly healing, starting to get bored and impatient, that must be a good sign!
I am not up to much, laying on the couch, reading and watching the Tour.
I'll be back in the swing of things before I know it.
