7am wake up call as g-daughter arrived all bright eyed and not thinking of going back to sleep today.
As we had our breakfast my friend Cheryl McGraw dropped by and brought me a bushel of my favorite apple. These Hoovers are so great for applesauce and apple butter or just to eat, yum yum. Thanks Cheryl !!!
After I picked g-daughter up she went to sleep as soon as we got in the car . Hubbie was here when we got home , he had taken the afternoon off to stay with g-daughter while I went to my knee re-check appointment.
G-daughter slept for over an hour while we ate lunch and I did more housework before getting ready to go to the doctor.
I was again fortunate to find an empty waiting room and a very timely visit. Doctor used this model to help explain when he thinks is causing my knee pain and the tweeks I seem to be unable to avoid.
We are going to give my knee more time to heal with the cortisone injection still working to strengthen the knee and me exercising to strengthen my thigh and calf muscles.
I do feel better and stronger with each passing day .
I stopped by Walgreens on my way home and replaced my heating pas that stopped working a couple nights ago as the doctor also said heat to relax everything at night was good.
As I made the drive back through Terry's Gap I noticed alot more leaf color than there was 2 weeks ago.
I rode my stationary bike tonight for 5 minutes after 5 minutes of stretching per docs orders. I am supposed to add 2 minutes each night up to 30 minutes.
My knee actually felt better after the 5 minutes of bike pedaling, the cortisone my still need to move around in there.
D-in-love sent me this pic tonight of g-son's 4th grade class picture. He is such a handsome boy !
The weather is going from these few days of record breaking heat to a 20 degree drop for the weekend for our roller coaster ride October !!
Thankful for the blessings of this day and praying for grace and love for all God's children as this election gets closer.
God Bless and Good Night.
