Happy to be back home!

Hi You all!  Thanks again for your wonderful messages of kindness and cheer over the past few days, was great to know that so many people were supporting me! My knee is looking good, looks like a shrivelled pumpkin now, I have a lovely waterproof dressing on it so I can shower, and my neighbour brought me safely home, for which I am very thankful. Got up all the steps with no big problems either, and now I am going to rest for a few hours, as I am totally knocked out!

I want to wish all those partying at PPF and sending postcard's at Darcy's challenge a fun day, I will join in again next week. Hope to be so far recovered tomorrow that I can start with some gently painting and crafting.

And to those ladies who are wondering why I didn't fly home on my new crutches - well, they gave me  leaflet with them which say it is not allowed to hang luggage or bags on to them for safety reasons....Perhaps I can learn some more tricks from Harry Potter first....

I will be back tomorrow with some photos I took while I was in Essen. Don't worry, no horror pictures of my knee!!

Have a great day, take care, and I will be round to visit you this afternoon when I have had a rest!!

  3. I did wonder how you'd manage the stairs but I suppose you could always have "shoogled" up on your bum! Take care, big hugs. xx

  12. So good to hear you are home Valerie and the op is behind you. You really must rest it. My sister in law had the same op and because she felt so much better went and overdid it, now she is suffering. So please don't overdo it, tis not worth it. Hugs and Love Annette xx

  16. Hooray, she's home! Good to read that all is going well and that your knee is like a shrivelled pumpkin (I so wish you could draw a halloween pumpkin face on it.....).

    Rest up and take it easy, some gentle arting tomorrow will be just what the doctor ordered :)

  17. You certainly took getting into the spirit of Halloween farther than anyone else I have ever known! To go so far as to involve doctors and hospitals to get that stitched Frankenstein look on a knee- that is dedication to the holiday! Glad they gave you good painkillers and took good care of you. Get all the rest you need!

  23. Hi Val
    So you have had your operation already? I am glad to read all went well and you are back home in your own comfort.
    What a relief the operation was a success.

    P.S. I spent a little while in Essen many years ago, thankfully not the hospital.
