The Road To The Farm
There's rarely a dull moment here, though sometimes I would like one. And this holiday weekend has been no different. I will start with Friday. I have been trying to delay knee replacement surgery with injections every six months. And about a week ago, my knee went out. I kept getting stuck and not able to get up, or bend it, with really bad pain. So Friday it was off to the surgeon for more injections. This one was more painful than any had been, and my knee just buckled when I tried to stand. One strong man was on each side of me to help, and it was suggested to leave in a wheelchair. Not if I can help it! I sat awhile, then limped out, hanging onto my husband and headed for the hospital store to look for assistive devices. Phil said that the injection had hit the anterior excruciating ligament!! Feeling very down, I then headed to the cheese shop for local eggs, only to find them sold out. But they told us the farm they buy from was just down the road, so we went there to get them. It was a lovely drive, then on the way home, we passed this local fishing hole that is privately stocked, so beautiful. We sat and watched as the fish jumped in the air to eat bugs, and some nice people caught fish for us and let me take their picture. Feeling rejuvinated, we headed home, only to find my computer had crashed!! And you know the rest of that story! So many ups and downs all in the space of an afternoon.
