**Update on how I'm doing** [View all]

I've had a number of very kind people ask me how my knee is, and how I'm doing...

Well, today I saw my surgeon for my two-week check, and it's official: I'm doing great.

I've shed the knee immobilizers, and the walkers...

No cane either.

I've got good range of motion in the knee, and can now bend it to 110 degrees.

What little pain I have is hardly noticeable and only if it interferes with my sleep do I take any pain med for it.

And the best part? Now I no longer need to cover the knee with Saran Wrap to keep it dry in the shower! It's healed to the point that I can let the water run freely over it.

Every day, I'm a little bit stronger, a little bit more myself...

Thank you, all of you, for standing by me as I pass through this adventure!
