First - who watches True Blood? Are you loving this season? I read all the books prior to watching the show, and I love to see how they do things different. The part of Eric loosing his memory was one of my favorite parts... and I love how Alexander Skarsgard is representing it! Holla' to the Fang Bangers!
So not much crafting going on here right now. However I did want to take a moment to say thanks to all the well wishers. It was great logging into my email and having a ton of get well wishes, it helped make the days better. And for those that asked: knee surgery went well. I had an arthoscopic surgery check on the plugs I had put in during an modified OATS (used cadaver plugs instead of my own cartilage) procedure back in 2005. One of the plugs was in perfect shape, unfortunately the second one was not. It was cracked and basically I have some bone on bone action which is causing lots of pain and grinding. This surgery told my surgeon that I will need a second, much more intense surgery known as an allograft. I will be put on a donor list, and when a match is found for my size, they will harvest cartilage from the cadavers knee and will size it to the defect in my knee (my surgeon took my measurements this past surgery). They will have 30 days to harvest the cartilage and implant it into me. I'm not ready to take that plunge yet... the recovery period is 8 weeks on crutches and 6 months to 1 year until back to full activity. That's a long time to be out of the exercise game for me! Plus being on crutches with young kids is never fun. AND the PT involved is pretty intense. After my last surgery is 2005 I had to go 3x a week for 2 months, 2x a week for 2 months and 1x a week for 1 month! Lots of time AND money!
That was a lot of info, but that's where I stand. Sort of in limbo at the moment.
My husband is also in MD for the week, so its just me and the kiddos. And my birthday is this weekend and we are taking the new camper for a long weekend, so although I won't be posting many crafts here, I will be thinking of you all and I will be excited to see what you have to share during Sugar & Spice Wednesday and What are little boys made of Thursday!
Wishing you all a great week! And because no photo posts are no fun:
My little one playing in the boat the hubster boat me so I could still float in the pool and not submerge my knee. Isn't he thoughtful? HA HA - and yes, I used it!
Below are a few of my most visited posts. I hope you enjoy looking around!
