Knee Update

Regular readers know that I injured my knee a couple of weeks ago, badly enough to send me to the emergency room. Many of you have been asking about it, so I wanted to give you a quick update.

My knee is doing much, much better. With most of my regular day-to-day activities, I’m close to normal. I can’t yet walk as far as I normally can without taking a break to rest; and I’m holding off on doing any sort of heavy lifting, including heavy bags of groceries and such. But I’m totally off the crutches and the cane and the pain meds (except for ibuprofen), and I’m walking longish distances, and I can do pretty much all of my regular day-to-day activities without much trouble. I even went to the gym today (don’t worry, I wasn’t stupid — upper body work on machines, plus some abs work).

I’m still somewhat backed up on work that I missed when I was out. So I probably won’t be back to my usual blogging schedule for another week or so. But I wanted to reassure you all: I’m getting back to normal fairly quickly. Or what passes for normal for me. Thanks to everyone for your kind words — it’s meant a lot.

    Good to hear. Knee injuries SUCK! My father injured his knee playing high-school baseball in the late 40’s, and it bothered him the rest of his life. Glad you won’t be going through that.

    Glad to hear recovery continues to go well.

    I’m starting to get to that phase where I can say “I’m not as young as I used to be,” and had a bit of a scare when I injured my lower back and couldn’t move about without severe pain. I was quite glad to get back to my life after it faded. So I know how worrying an injury like that can be.

    Glad to know that you are feeling better.
    It is very rare for me to comment, but I did want to send a note to say that I look forward to reading your blog on a regular basis – and have missed your presence on the blog.
    Thank you for doing this.

    Wow, good for you! I hope you have continued good recovery and don’t suffer relapses (for lack of a better word).
