Hey gang it's Fancy and I simply wanted to let everyone know why I Disappeared for the last week or so again. My right knee has been acting up and I had surgery scheduled for it tomorrow. It started to swell up a lot lot worse this past week and I made an appointment to go see my surgeon last Wednesday. She took a look at my knee and observed how I was using it and what I did with it and she decided without a doubt that I had broken my knee cap and that was causing the extensive swelling. So I got put in an immobilizing brace and was told to stay off my feet as much as humanly possible for the next several weeks. She threatened to put a cast on my leg but then she said I'd probably fall on my face everyday from the weight of the cast because of my balance issues. ( boy did she hit that nail on the head!)
I go back to see my surgeon June 27th for a reassessment. I'm hoping we come up with a plan to fix this monster that I've been dealing with. I hate being homebound just as much as I hate for this stupid right leg to be totally stiff and useless. But I know it's for my own good and I have to follow instructions no matter how much I dislike them! Sorry for my mini pity party here but it's been a rough week and I'm having to deal with things I've never dealt with before. Here's a picture of my silly leg in its brace.
