No photos this time, but I thought I would let you all know that I am absolutely thrilled with my new knee, I had the surgery on the Tuesday, came home last Saturday morning and haven't used my crutches since! I saw the physio yesterday who was very pleased with my progress and says I can go walking for ten minutes each day. the surgeon took the staples out (32) this afternoon and that was a big relief also. I can even walk up and down the stairs to the upstairs part of the house, though I am typing this on the laptop downstairs. I shall start catching up with blogs in the next few days, now I am going for a walk outside in the wonderful sunshine we are enjoying here.
