Got ‘er Done

IMG_0149The new bionic knee.Right now it is sore and tender but I am glad she’s in and ready to get her  on the road again.Those beautiful stitches came out today and I am sure that is going to help immensely.I am proud to tell you that the leg is very swollen and will be a lot better looking in the days to come.My legs are a lot smaller than they look here.(Disclaimer)All the photos are taken with my lovely guy Cam.

I got a lot of new toys and a few laughs with my new knee and when I tell you I always wanted a metallic blue colored vehicle I never in a million years thought it would look like this.How do you like the carrier in the front?

IMG_0145 The day Hungarian Work Horse brought it to the hospital it had two front wheels that I made him remove because I wanted a walker not a stroller and that is what it reminded me of.I traded that in already and am now using a generic cane that Brooke got for me on Monday while I was at physical therapy.Not the claw cane either,just a plain jane.When we got home I had Brooke help me stage the thing so it looked like I fell down our back stairs to scare Al and it worked but it back fired too.My mom apparently came over to visit and came to the back door.I guess she picked the thing up and didn’t see me so she thought I was sleeping and went on her merry way.She has never said a word to me about it.I could have got a stern talking to for that so I if anybody sees her don’t mention it to her.

Later on Brooke picked me up and to Miss P’s game we went.Oh,ya, and we staged the walker again before we left laughing all the way.I love it when your kids are in a conspiracy with you.This time it worked.It wasn’t long after we were at the game that Brooke got a call from her dad wanting to know if she had me with her. She didn’t let him sweat too long and then handed the phone to me.I was laughing and he was yelling telling me he was calling my sister Linda and my mother and then 911 if he didn’t find me. It was then that I realized he thought I fell and someone hauled me off to the hospital again.My poor baby.

I don’t remember much of the hospital stay at all and I am not kidding.The stories I am hearing is that I was planning a family reunion and birthday parties and doing a lot of bawling.I guess I tried to feed everybody and save food off my tray for Al.I don’t remember any of it but I am proud I was a good hostess even when I was drugged up.Anyway, I hope you all got enough to eat.

I really wrote this post to say thank you to everyone for coming to see me even though I don’t remember you were there and those of you that didn’t that I thought I saw thank you, too.I even thought that some people came to see me that are dead.Hallucination is weird.

IMG_0142These are some of the beautiful things that I got in the hospital.I got all of the gift givers mixed up and Brooke helped me figure out who gave me what so I promise to get some notes in the mail soon.If I thank you for something you didn’t get for me just be thankful you got a thank you.

I mean this with all of my heart.My family is the best in the world.My Brooke brought Lexie to the hospital to see me and I remember that.I know that means something about our Heavenly Father taking care of the little ones.Can you imagine if I was acting like a lunatic in front of that little girl!She thinks I am the greatest and I don’t want that to change.I want her to remember me like I remember my Grandma Jahr.I still love every memory I have of her.

I want my mom and my sisters especially, Linda and Lori to know how much they mean to me and  how much I love them.My beautiful niece Sarah,too.They truly know the meaning of this scripture I will leave you with.

    If anyone does not provide for his relatives,and especially for his immediate family,he has denied the faith worse than an unbeliever.1Timothy5:8.

You can’t say that about this group.They are my earthly blessings and I can’t believe they put up with me sometimes,but I am so thankful that they do.

  1. Oh my!! Liz, your knee – it doesn’t look like a knee, at least not in that photo. It sort of looks like Braunschweiger liver sausage – delicious. No honestly, if I could post the photo here – you’d see – delicious 🙂 Liz, I hope you heal extremely well and quickly so that you’ll be running around like a spring pony in no time! Take care of yourself, Love, Kim

    • Well I am of German descent so I guess that is appropriate!The road to recovery is long and winding but I will get it done.Just keep praying for me sis because I need it and I want to get over this hump.Love Liz
