I'm not feeling nearly as happy as in that first photo. I guess Chuck was right - the hospital drugs wore off. The best part is being home instead of the hospital - decent food and all the comforts. The worst part is the whomping headaches/nausea I have in the mornings, presumably due to the spinal. Oh yeah, that knee is pretty sore.
This is a picture of my lifesaver, a Polar Care 300, which pumps ice water into a cuff around my knee. It's not covered by any of my medical plans and I wasn't going to spend $200 on it, but it turned out that my friend had one from a previous surgery. Believe me it is worth the money. I read a study where the dr said patients like it so much that he has to threaten to surgically remove it after three weeks.
Knitting - Ah yes, this is a knitting blog. I'm working on a Christmas gift of the no mind variety of knitting. I promise I'll get back to Marina once my head clears a bit.
