I was doing a little better and then woke up Friday with my knee a lot more painful and swollen. I probably twisted it somehow either the day before or while I slept. ?? My knee is so swollen it is hard to bend it and my foot still hurts from the gout so I am hobbling about like I have a peg leg. Cat napping around the clock.
Caroline came to clean on Tuesday and she offered to bring me over a walker I could use. (I was using one of my black plastic chairs to get around--the walker is easier to move that's for sure.)
Dagan and Leah have been taking good care of me and checking on me regularly. But this weekend it is even difficult for me to walk very far at all. My day evolves around making trips to the bathroom because I am trying to drink lots of fluids, Just feeding Annie is a huge project, let alone scooping the cat box. It was Ian's 5th birthday party yesterday and Leah was planning on coming by tonight...so I didn't let them know I was worse. I will later on.
My huge challenge today will be to shower...and maybe try to make it back to the walk-in clinic to see if they can tell me what I did to my knee and why the gout is no better.
At the moment, I can't imagine walking all the way to the car in the first place or how I could get into Leah's high vehicle...I do have a small stool...
Sorry I don't have anything better or new to tell you. I think I may just wait to come back to blog when I do have something. Right now I am going to try to doze again for a little while. Be back when I have something to report. :) :)
