I’ll be Back in the Saddle Again

Rockin’ to and fro
Back in the saddle again
I go my way
Back in the saddle again

It has been 15 days since my knee surgery and I am recovering very well. Soon I will be Back in the Saddle again. Recovery started on Tuesday with 2 1/2 days in St Thomas Hospital and then to West Meade Place on the hill for several days. On Monday we decided I could do just as well at home than at West Meade Place and I could travel to Southern Joint Replacement Institute at St Thomas for physical therapy.

I  did not have the leg strength except to straighten a slight leg bend. We bought some raising blocks at the Bed and Bath store and raised the bed and we bought a bedside rail from Bradley Drugs on Charlotte. The raised bed and supporting rail allowed me to get into and out of the bed safely without help from anyone.

There have been some minor problems in my recovery but each day is better. It’s great to be back home!
