Getting better - and getting bored!

Well, I am out of hospital and on the road to recovery.  The surgery went well, though I haven'g got the amount of bend I had by this time after the other knee.  My surgeon is happy though so that is all I need to know.  I just have to keep on with the boring - and painful - exercises.

Bill came down for a few days to look after the two invalids, Barb is making a good recovery as well and has at last got an appetite back.  She hasn't felt like eating much for nearly two years now, so she is thrilled to be enjoying her meals at last!

We puddle around for a bit and manage to do the washing, then collapse into chairs with a rug over our feet - two old grannies together!  The weather has been miserable for most of the time, overcast and showery, but not a lot of useful rain.  We were having much better weather in Mackay.

I have managed to take a few photos of some of the lovely plants in Barb's garden, but they will have to wait till I can download them at home.  There are no stairs in this house for me  to practise on so I am hoping I can make it up the stairs to the office next Tuesday night, when I can start catching up.  Cheers 


  1. That is such good news Robyn - hope the flexibility increases as the exercises take effect. I was thinking of you just yesterday and wondering how things were going. Glad for your sister that she can enjoy food again - it's miserable not being able to. It sounds as if Bill has his work cut out!!

  2. I used to hate doing the exercises after my knee replacements - they're such a pain. But I'm glad to hear the surgery went well and that you're on the mend.

  3. Now you know the exercises are the vital link between the op & recovery - give yourself time! Wishing you a speedy (but don't go too fast!) recovery x

  4. Hope everything goes well now that you are both on the road to recovery. Better weather would help too.

  5. Wondered how you were going. I feel things are progressing very slowly although both the physio and John tell me things are going well. i finally see the surgeon in 2 weeks. Biggest problem is a permanently bad taste in my mouth.
    So glad you are both managing, mostly miserable weather here, typically wet and cold winter.
