On Hold



The glorious Autumn weather is upon us. Sleeveless days and frost-laden nights.

I've so looked forward to this time of the year, chores to tend in the garden, and the cooperation of the weather, makes for perfect pottering days.
I've made a list, and I'm raring to go.

Serendipity however, has different plans. I've carelessly injured my knee, the doctor thinks an ACL sprain, so with orders of ice packs and magical potions from his trusty medicine bag, I've been ordered to chair sittin'.

"Fortune favours the brave" or not.

Take care of that knee. I had an ACL replacement years ago, and once it got better, it was fine. Maybe it's time to take up knitting! :-)

Bummer ~ nothing worse than being laid up when the outside is calling to you. May your recovery be quick so you can be up and about soon.

Oh dear! Get better soon! I love this weather, too...warm afternoons but chilly mornings and evenings! I think I did my last puttering outside!

First law of Murphy - Never plan.
Second Law of Murphy - rest, take care, do what the docs says and plan no more.

So sorry :(

Oh Jo...so sorry to learn about your knee. Bad enough at any time of year...but when the weather is cool enough to be outside that makes it even worse. I do hope it heals quickly and that it's not too painful at the moment. Enjoy your days as best you can...I'll be thinking of you.

Oh no!! My husband had a knee injury. He exercises regularly and uses a supplement with glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. So far, it's been helping quite a bit. Take care of yourself my dear friend!

Lots of love,

Oh, bother! So sorry to hear your knee dictates time out for you.

Be sure to have a thin towel or washcloth between your skin and any plastic bag of ice. Real ice bags keep your skin protected from the danger of an ice burn. Plastic bags with ice in them don't offer such protection and ice can burn skin just as heat can. I folded a hand towel in half, stitched up the sides, and that's what our zip-lock bags of ice go in. It works well.

Get well hugs!

Oh, dear, what a shame! I do hope your trusty medicine bag came from Dr. Daniels? He always helps me...

Mary Lou said...

I hope the pain is minimal and the healing is quick. I also hope you knit..It's good for times like this. Enjoy the weather as best you can.
Take good care of you.

So, how are you now? Still sitting or getting about a bit now?> Do hope so. Can imagine you don't like being stuck down for too long, even with great books and cozy interiors.
