So it has been 5 weeks and 1 day since Jim's Total Knee Surgery! What a wild ride! Jim's Surgeon told me... " Jim's gonna think he's made the worst decision of his life for the next two months..." Well... let me tell you where we are at ... at the moment!
Our home health services are done and we are entering the outpatient phase of our rehab... yes it is still we! We found a great Rehab company... actually one started by therapists I used to work with... years ago!
Jim's range of motion is really good, despite all of the setbacks that he's experienced! His strength is also coming along quite nicely! This is my perspective... don't ask Jim how he thinks things are... He is still not a happy camper!
Jim is now driving ... Yeah! Walking on a cane... Yeah! Grilling in the back yard... Yeah! Helping with the trash and the cats! Now I can see he has come a long way and we still have a little ways left to go, but we are seeing that awesome, welcome, well
deserved light at the end of this TKR tunnel!
I can tell JIm is ready to get back to work! Let me tell you what happened yesterday... Jim is a sales manager for digital media... Ding Dong.... Young man at the door recruiting for odd jobs.
This is the sequence of events:
Me: Jim there is a young man at the door wanting to know if we needed any pressure washing done... as we have siding and a screened back porch...
Jim comes to the door, walks outside and preceeds to talk to this young man. A few minutes later... Jim is on the phone to one of his sales reps. giving, this ambitious young man's, name and number to him to get in touch with for a print add special!
Yep.... He's on the mend and we have made it this far! I expect the next phase will be much better for the lot of us! We have had exceptional care and support thus far... I can't wait to share the final update with all my AR family!
A special thanks to you all... I don't think we could have gotten to this point without the love and support from you guys! SO .... Special Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
