Whereabouts

Just wanted to drop a quick post to say that I am still here.  I had an accident on August 1st and tore my meniscus and dislocated my knee cap.  My knee cap relocated by itself but caused the most pain and did the most damage.  I had an immobilizer on and was on crutches until August 12th so did not have much mobility. When I met with the ortho on August 12th, she gave me a flexible brace and told me I could go off the crutches and start driving again.  It has been a challenge with two young ones and full-time work but my DH has done a lot and continues to be a big help.  I have meet with an ortho surgeon and he wants to see if physical therapy will help heal and strengthen my knee enough so that I do not have to have surgery.  I will meet with the surgeon again in late September to see if all the therapy paid off and I do not have to get surgery.

I have been working on several projects and have taken some pictures butI am having internet issues and cannot get them to post at the moment so will have to keep working on that.
