My sister, who lives in Ohio, had knee replacement surgery at the end of March, hence why I haven't put anything on my blog.
Below is a picture of my sister, being cared for by her two cats - Juliette in the forefront and Jasmine sitting on her good leg.

My sister is doing remarkably well with her recuperation. This morning, we walked 1/3 or a mile around her community and then a shorter walk this afternoon. The surgery was a week ago Wednesday and I am amazed at how quickly her incision has healed. Instead of staples or stitches, her leg was glued together. She was able to take a shower within 48 hours of surgery and did not have to cover the incision. Jean has been really good with doing her exercises. We have had a good time together - great sister time!!! Tomorrow we are heading to the 4th session of PT and then a bit of shopping!!! Of course, she needs to use her walker (which she does not really like)but in the house and going to PT she uses her cane!! Again I am amazed at how quickly this proceedure and recovery has been. Her doctor is one of the top in this field and travels around the country teaching. I am very impressed.
Well, time to go and redo the ice packs
Thanks for stopping by --- Hope to put up some pictures of my stitching within the next few days.
