Long time, no read, huh?
I’m so sorry I haven’t been around! My life has sort of been flipped upside down, and I feel like it has taken me months to catch up.
It’s been almost a year since I was diagnosed w/ my brain tumor and since then I feel as if it has been impossible for me to get back into the groove and feel myself again. On the home front things have been great, but medically I am just a disaster!
So remember how I told you I was having knee pain, but was told by a specialist is was essentially no big deal?
After we moved back home, I started walking the neighborhood to get some Vitamin D, exercise, and listen to murder mystery podcasts. After a few weeks, my knee started swelling and causing me a huge amount of pain again. Instinct (and the pain!) told me something was really wrong so I decided to get a 2nd opinion from a practice I knew I could trust. I got referred to a knee specialist in the same practice as my orthopedic surgeon and, long story short, I am 3 weeks post op from a knee arthroscopy because I had not one, but two!, meniscus tears as well as damaged cartilage under my knee cap.
As of today, the pain and the swelling are mostly gone, and I almost feel like a new person. Next week, I will have someone watching Owen on a full-time basis so I plan to get back into the groove of blogging regularly again! I just wanted to send you all a quick update as to where I’ve been, and let you know I’ll be back soon!
