I'm back and glad to report that I would have been back sooner if it were only my knee I had to contend with. But Sandy came for a visit and we have been without power for the last couple of days. It came back on today at 1:05 p.m. Did you hear me cheering? We got off very lucky this time. Our outage was kind of a freak thing that had more to do with last year's storm that never got completely cleaned up than this one, I think. I feel for all the people along the East Coast who have had a devil of a time. I hope things get better soon.
I did have my knee surgery last Wednesday. Everything went swimmingly. Of course, the next morning I thought I was going to die or at least never walk again, but when I woke up on Friday, I realized that I hadn't needed to be quite so dire. By now, I have pretty good motion, am going up and down stairs with less discomfort than before the surgery and am looking forward to graduating to a cane from the walker at some point in the near future. The power outage didn't help my point of view for a few days. I was a bear to live with because I couldn't ice the thing down and the swelling was out of hand. But now, I am able to do what I have to do and things are looking up. Please be patient with me as I try to catch up with all your blogs. I'm looking forward to a trip into Blogland.
I haven't had a lot of time to edit photos needless to say with the power outage and normal fatigue after the surgery, but I did get to a few today. Here are some more shots of Rome, the Eternal City.
