Mom (for those of you that do not know) is an RN on disability after she got hurt in ICU. She has had 7 surgeries on her R. knee and has a tendency to fall sometimes. (Uh- last surgery was failed knee replacement. She doesn't even want me to comment on how this could have been avoided. TICKS her off). I help her out when I can. I stand for her to get up, and sometimes can help her avoid a fall. Not always. AND she is VERY proud and stubborn. She does use a cane, and she does not use the riding carts at stores. She uses the baskets to help. She tells me if she can't walk, she won't go-told you she was stubborn. (She has a brace and Canadian crutches but she doesn't use them unless she has to. She has a wheelchair too, but the last time she used that was after the last surgery.) And yes, she hurts even when she does not fall. It is something called RSD. You can google it if you are that interested, but it just means she hurts in that knee when it has been replaced, just like it did before.
She walks with a limp and compensates with her other knee alot. Which makes that one hurt sometimes, but not nearly as much. Tolerable she says.
This time when she fell(lordy, just going to the restroom at night) she hurt both of them. I couldn't help her up this time. She just scooted! You should have seen it. It would have been pretty funny if I hadn't been so worried. If she hasn't mastered walking on one leg, she sure hasn't on none! lol
Soooo-rather than let the docs scope her good knee for a probable torn medial meniscus,(yeah, I don't know what it is either, but she says it helps support the knee and hurts if it gets torn.), she wants to give it time. She is real reluctant to let anyone touch her in an OR after her past experience. Can't say as I blame her. Oh, and she has gone to soooo much rehab places, she thinks she could pass their state boards!
The puter is in the front bedroom and it is uncomfortable-it hurts-to sit with knees bent. So she hasn't come to the puter much.
Uh, Mom, have I explained it enough??? HU? Ok, she says yeah. She has a tendency to go on and on and on.....
THAT is why we aren't around much. She managed to get to the mailbox. OH. MY. DOG.
She cried over so many cards. Lots of DWBers we don't even know!!!! She meant to count them before we came in here, but it's alot. She never got Christmas cards like that in her whole life, she said. (and that is a very long time) WHAT Mom????? nuthin. I didn't say anything... ANNDDD we have gotten lots of e-cards too!! I really need to bring her a box of Kleenex in here for all the blubbering she does over this stuff. OK, OK, OK...she says stop making fun of her.
If anyone is still reading, thanks again for all the offers of help. She has an idea for a picture she hopes she can get. It may just end up being on the blog. She really doesn't want any other doggies people to have to take their time making a card she can't probably sit long enough to type all the e-mail addresses in. Besides, it is a busy time of year. We love all of you. Dog people (with very few exceptions) are the BEST!!!!!!! (and some cat people Mom says....she just has always known dog people.)
Are you finished Mom????????????? Whew. ok then.
MMMMUUUUAAAAHHHH to you all
pee ess hay Tannererer!!!! hay Petrapotpie!!!!! bet u doan no hoo rote this!!!!

Thank you to each one of you who has offered to help me. I swear, it brought me to tears, the kindness.
We'll try to catch up with everyone soon. Thank you, thank you.
BIG HUGS to all of you

She is also panicking about the Christmas cards for 2 reasons. She has been trying to get the both of us in a nice holiday shot. While I know how to stay when she tells me to, Scooter is all over the place. She is going to try to get someone to come help her. (She says it is times like these when living alone sucks) Also, as all of you know there have been some economic setbacks lately. She has found out that her little bit of retirement from one of the hospitals is gone. At least that's what they tell her. She's trying not to freak out about that. She also wishes her disability had cost of living increases! lol So now she is thinking we had no business signing up for the card exchange. I told her to take it easy, but sometimes she gets out of hand. We will get a picture and we will send cards. Probably mostly e-cards if she can figure out how to do it. (She had no idea that e-card places cost money and besides, she wants to try to send one with our picture on it) She really wanted to send mostly snail mail cards, but that may not be feasable due to $$. Have I mentioned she is pathetic when it comes to the computer??
So she is hobbling around having to use her walker and leg brace today, and trying not to do much but stay in the bed with her leg up. Her knee is about the size of a soccer ball. Kinda cool, but she doesn't think so.
So it may be a day or two before we post again. Mom wanted me to tell y'all this not so you'd feel sorry for her or anything, but to explain our absence. She says if she gets on the computer, she has to figure out the card thing. A couple of people have offered to help her with the e card making and she appreciates it a ton. She is determined to get a nice picture. We'll see.
Also, we will catch up on visiting real soon. We are behind again and are likely to get behinder for the next day or two.
See y'all soon. I'll look after Mom. Oh for opposable thumbs!!!!
Sunny (& mom, the gimp)
