Knee news ....

... the good news is that the specialist has said that I can drive!!!  Yes!  That means I don't have to rely so heavily on my friends.  The bad news - he think I've got cartilage damage, but can't confirm this until I've had an MRI.  The nice thing about private medicine is that you don't have to wait - so I'm being scanned on Thursday.  And then I'll see the specialist again next Tuesday and then I'll know what the plan is!!  He told me to put the crutches away as I could develop additional problems with changing gait and backache.  So, I'm being extremely careful when walking - I have to be careful not to twist the knee joint - so no more ballroom dancing :)))  Seriously, this is good news.  The knee still aches a bit, but the acute pain has long gone. 

Does that mean I've now lost my good excuse for sitting down and crafting?  I'll have to do some ironing - arrgh!  Well, I'll do some!  That's all for this evening.  I've been updating my Waltzingmouse Gallery this evening - and I've just realised how many cards I make with Claire's stamps!  Bye for now - see you tomorrow.

We are ALWAYS happy to see WMS stamps on your creations, Deb. We would be disappointed if you DIDN'T include at least one little "mouse stamp". Glad you are getting your knee thing figured out and hopefully you won't have anything torn...only strained. That's much easier to fix. Hugs!

Glad to hear you can drive and that things are moving along in sorting out the problem and the treatment. And I agree with the other girls - go easy on the ironing! :)

Oh I am so pleased that you can drive again, I know I am lost if I can't get out and about myself! Do crafters need an excuse to make cards? :o)

Great news Deborah! I'd say you need to be a bit selective with your activities... Driving and crafting - yes; ironing - no!

Well this IS good news. I hope that the cartilage damage will be limited and that you will fully recovered soon...It;s good to be independent again and to go and drive everywhere you want by yourself ( is this english? forgive me my mistakes :)...)
Hugs!
