Peanut butter and jelly sandwich


After a month in rehab, the food I asked for when I got home was peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So fine!

Sammy and Mason came by not long after I arrived home. I had to use the toilet and when Sammy first saw me he grinned so big. pointed at me, and ran off to tell his mama. I trust it was because he was glad to see me and not because I was on the pot. Either one, I was the happiest man in the world. Mason has forgotten me but I hope to see him more and make up for lost time.

The knee is coming along so-so; very sore up to my crotch. The therapists are working me harder at home than they did in rehab. I am closely watching for infection.

I have a few days to work by myself before a therapist comes back on Monday. Tuesday I deal with the steps once more when going to surgeon for checkup.

Taking rat poison for a blood clot in my knee; it seems to be dissolving safely but I will have to be on the med for at least three more months. A nurse just now left me after doing a blood test and taking my vital signs. All were ok.

I know all this is boring but it is my way of coping and trying to make sense of things. I still see no future without crutches but I do see a better future even with them.

I may be late answering your comments but be assured I eagerly read and appreciate all of them.

Have a good weekend, dear ones.

  3. This is not boring. Love how you described Sammy’s reaction. I don’t want you to have infection in your knee. Please do your exercises, my friend. Don’t spend too much of time on PC. Static life is not good for your legs.
    I’m happy you came back. šŸ™‚
