I have to say, the last month or so has been memorable, to say the least. Between, my mom and her knee replacement, a joint flare up that parked me in bed for almost a week, I have been quite overloaded.
I ended up staying the night at Mom's a lot when she first got home, because at that point, she was so off-balance and sore that we were afraid to leave her alone. She is doing much better now, praise God.
The joint flare up started when she was in the hospital and continued for nearly a month. Bad pain the first week, then I progressed to functional but sore. Bad news: my hands and wrists hurt too bad to knit for a few weeks. Good news: read a lot of books.
