ANOTHER Little Accident
Sometimes I have bad luck, and yesterday seemed to be one of those days. I was/am missing my grand kids really bad, needing some time with them and school is getting ready to start, so time is limited. I called to make arrangements and seemed all was ok. Went in to the living room to make sure it would work with Scott's schedule and see what all he has going with helping my parents out here lately. I think I got up to go feed the dogs and as I stood up from the love seat my knee had a SHARP pain and caused me to fall back. I grabbed my knee and let out a little pain cry and just sat there rubbing it. The pain kind of subsided so I got up to go feed the dogs and nope, still not going to work. My knee is locked up. I can not believe this. I can bend it, but there is no straightening the leg, and there sure isn't any walking on it. I tried to straighten it, I tried to relax it, I tried everything I knew to do, but there was no fixing it. I was in tears, upset because I can't get it to work, and I wanted the grand kids. There is no way I can take care of them like this. Sarah calls and I had to tell her I was not going to be able to keep the kids. I am going to bed with drugs. I make it do the bedroom, crawl into bed and take a muscle relaxer. I sleep for a couple hours, get up and try once again to stand on the leg. Nope, still not working. Dang it. I make it back to the living room, lay down on the sofa and drift in and out of sleep. Scott asks me if I am going to sleep on the sofa all night and I said yes. He brings me another muscle relaxer, my leg is hurting so dag gum much, I am ready for the pain pill but I think, nope, I am going to tough this out. Give me a muscle relaxer again. I lay there for a while and it seems like when your body has been in one position for a while it just will involuntarily stretch . It did. It hurt, and it popped my knee back in. I heard it, felt it, it hurt bad for just a bit, but then, then....it was ok. I straightened the leg out, yes, it went straight. I got up off the sofa, I stood up, I put my weight on it, I even took a couple steps. I was fixed. I could not believe it. The snag in the knee was gone. I laid back down on the sofa and stayed there all night.
Today I am much better. I don't feel 100%, but I am at least 95. I have slept off and on all day, the top of my knee hurts, the muscles going into the knee hurt, no they ache, not really hurt. But I am going to LIVE. My cousin came by and took me out to eat Mexican (my favorite) for dinner and conversation. We have not had any time together in about three weeks. Tomorrow (Fri) we have to drive a couple hours to go sign some papers in Enid and then I am coming home to get my car out of the shop. I decided that today, Thankful Thursday, I am thankful that things were not serious, I lived through it without going to the doctor, and I have a husband that took good care of me. (and left me alone today which I like when I don't feel good!)
And look who was back eating my corn!!

so you are getting these unedited today. Sorry, but I just wanted you to see her. She did not bring her babies this time, must have left them home with Bucky.
