3 Months

This will probably be my second-to-last post. I'll write one more after my next doctor's appointment in mid August. Then, that's it. Blog over! Thanks for everyone's moral support.

It's been 3 months now since my ACL reconstruction surgery. My knee feels pretty good most of the time. The only time I have any discomfort (usually) is going down stairs and deep knee bends. But I'm sure it's because my muscles are still pretty weak. Which is no real surprise since I haven't done a very good job of keeping up with physical therapy. I missed all this week. And next week I'm off to Alaska for 10 days.

Last night was the first time in a month (just guessing) that I've had trouble falling asleep because of leg pain. It was strange. It was at the top of my tibia, on the anterior side. It felt like bone pain or very deep muscle pain. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it was muscle pain from the home exercises I did two nights ago. I may have over-done things in a misguided attempt to make up for lost time.

Here are some random fun facts.

Range of motion: I can bend my knee 145 degrees now. [That's in the normal range.]

High heels: I wore the tiniest of heel on Tuesday -- it did not feel great. That was probably a bad (but necessary) move.

Hiking: I'm clear to do hiking but I'm not supposed to take any HUGE steps.

Scars: Did I ever write about the scar treatment? I think I did. Well, the scars are fine. They are "loose" if you can imagine what that means (not adhered all the way through the depth of the incisions). I showed my scars off in Chicago to a stranger. He said my knee looks like it has a smiley face on it.

See some of you next week (I hope)!

Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established website like yours
take a large amount of work? I'm brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd
like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views
online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a great job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.
Superb Blog!

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few
of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm
not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
