Yes all done and dusted and went very well, lots of exercises to do over the next few weeks to complete the healing process, the staff were lovely and they even gave me lunch and two MUGS of tea, in at 7.15am and out again at 1.15pm, hows that for service. Gotta be good though, do my exercises, take lots of short walks with rest in between and leave the garden alone for a while, you never know I MIGHT catch up with all your blogs, lol, I am working my way through all the lovely pics though, its all done in easy stages at the moment, takes me ages to read and write as its all of a blur, only clear for a few mins at a time but should have one of my cataracts removed soon, television is used as a radio at the moment as I cannot see the faces, not always a bad thing, lol..


Just look at those eyes, naughty Caspar stalking the frogs again, little devil knows I cannot chase him tonight, lol…

although it isn't really the weather for it today lol

Casper is lovely. I don't think I've seen a photo of him before. You seem to show more of the dogs - not that I dislike seeing them ... but you do show more of the dogs :o)

Hi Lincslass, glad your op went well, and you will soon be running round your garden.
Can you get audio description on your tv? my wife is registered blind, and relies tremendously on the a d, although most of the channels don't publish the fact that their programmes have it, the bbc in particular, either in the tv guides or on the electronic guide on the tv, you just have to put the programme on to find out, but it's a great help to anyone with sight problems, Derek.

26 Sep, 2013

 

Good news Lincslass - glad it all went well. It will be such a relief to get mobile again. Caspar is grand - Siamese colouring on a non Siamese shape - what breed is he?

26 Sep, 2013

 

Great news, hope you make a speedy recovery. Casper is beautiful!

26 Sep, 2013

 

Thankyou for all your good wishes, I am being good and doing my exercises, its felt a bit like dragging a lump of lead around today but I can get rid of the bulky dressing tomorrow so movement will be easier. I have discovered my tablets are too strong, made me dopey all day, not a good state to be in, LOL..

26 Sep, 2013

 

Caspar is the spoilt one in our house, he is a British Blue Pointer, his fur is very soft and his colour is best described as cream and mauve, they all have grumpy looking faces, quite the most comical cat we have ever had, he thinks he is the boss and therefore can go anywhere he chooses which even includes sharing our bedrooms during the day and the bathroom sink at night, its his favourite place to sleep, when he wants a drink we have to turn the tap on as that is how he prefers to quench his thirst,he is a talkative one as well and makes some really weird noises as he answers us, our son has his sister and she talks as well, lol, lovely family pet and likes to be with us although is a dab hand at avoiding the camera.....

27 Sep, 2013

 

Derek thankyou for that info, our telly has all sorts of programmes and settings, quite beyond my capabilities so I'll ask hubby (he's a Derek as well) to check that out for me, very important now Downton Abbey has returned.....

27 Sep, 2013

 

So pleased all went well Lincs, I'm sure your cataract op will go just as smoothly, apparently it works immediately:-))

27 Sep, 2013

 

that's brill news. yes do keep up the exercises and then you will soon be back in the garden.

27 Sep, 2013

 

I laughed when I saw the expression on Caspars face. He looks so disgusted with something we can not see. I'm glad the op went well and hopefully you will be back gardening soon.

28 Sep, 2013

 

Ba I can't wait to hopefully see things clearly, it does make you realise how precious some things are to us.
S'gran that expression is permanent, he is very grumpy looking, lol, the leg is healing well and pleased to say the stiffness is easing as the swelling goes down, tottering about now instead of a drunken wobble.....

28 Sep, 2013

 

Glad to read it all went well - wishing you a speedy recovery Lincslass.
I used to have a cat with a grumpy looking face just like Casper - he not only looked grumpy but was indeed a grumpy old man!

28 Sep, 2013

 

.Good luck with your recovery Lincslass, and I hope you're able to get out in the garden soon. Just take it gently.

29 Sep, 2013

 

Wishing you a speedy recovery and best wishes.

2 Oct, 2013

 

Just catching up again ! I hope you are feeling much fitter now , Sue.

4 Oct, 2013

 

I'm catching up too..............glad all went well Lincs, in for a few hours, they don't hang about these days do they? Glad you are able to get around, will you be able to garden again soon too? (Just to look around that is!!) :)

6 Oct, 2013

 

Thanks for the info on Caspar - he's gorgeous! I've never heard of that breed before. Sounds like a real character - hope we'll be seeing more of him!

6 Oct, 2013

 

Aha! I finally caught up with you! Hope the healing is going to plan...keep doing the exercises! :)

9 Oct, 2013

 

I see I'm not the only one playing catch here !

Great to hear your op went well & that you are able to get out & about once again! :-)) Hope you are still keeping up with your exercises.

10 Oct, 2013

 

Thankyou Karen and Balcony, pleased to say my knee is healing well although very stiff, so yes I have to keep doing the exercises....

10 Oct, 2013

 

Why is it that we all get lazy about doing exercises,even though we know they really help? Sorry...I don't know why I assume we all do that! but I certainly do, and it's very silly of me!

10 Oct, 2013

 

I know exactly what you mean Karen and to be honest I have surprised myself but the knee is so stiff its the only way to get it flexible again, I want to be able to run upstairs and be able to kneel down without someone having to help me get up again, plus be back in shape for next years gardening plans...

10 Oct, 2013

 

CK you ask : "Why is it that we all get lazy about doing exercises,even though we know they really help?"

Might it be because we find repetition to be very boring? I used to do some exercises for my back many years ago when I first began visiting a hospital in Madrid, Spain. I was prescribed back exercises & for a while I did do them but I became tired of doing t hem. I even tried watching TV at the same time but that didn't help much either.

Perhaps clubs are more effective because you are doing the same things as other people at the same time & perhaps that helps. Just a thought.
