Regular readers know that I injured my knee a couple of weeks ago, badly enough to send me to the emergency room. Many of you have been asking about it, so I wanted to give you a quick update.
My knee is doing much, much better. With most of my regular day-to-day activities, I’m close to normal. I can’t yet walk as far as I normally can without taking a break to rest; and I’m holding off on doing any sort of heavy lifting, including heavy bags of groceries and such. But I’m totally off the crutches and the cane and the pain meds (except for ibuprofen), and I’m walking longish distances, and I can do pretty much all of my regular day-to-day activities without much trouble. I even went to the gym today (don’t worry, I wasn’t stupid — upper body work on machines, plus some abs work).
I’m still somewhat backed up on work that I missed when I was out. So I probably won’t be back to my usual blogging schedule for another week or so. But I wanted to reassure you all: I’m getting back to normal fairly quickly. Or what passes for normal for me. Thanks to everyone for your kind words — it’s meant a lot.
