Brace Yourself

Just once I’d like to have a simple total knee replacement.  Six years ago I had my right knee done and two days before I broke two toes on the opposite leg. I won’t go into a whole diatribe about how miserable that was because I have a whole new list of things to gripe about.  So three weeks ago I had my left knee operation – six days after that during physical therapy I heard a loud POP which the therapist seemed to think it was nothing serious. HA…turns out after a lot of grief and pain and MRI’s the quadricep tendon had torn. That meant that I had to have major surgery again two days ago.  Forget knee rehab for now – I’m unable to even think about doing that for I don’t know how long.  I’m in a locking brace for at least six weeks and absolutely cannot bend my knee or it will tear again.


So as I said – brace yourself. I’m changing the name of this blog to My Crabby Little Page because that’s what I am.  CRABBY, crappy….and that’s what I’ll be doing on here for a while. Crabbing.  And don’t go nominating me for Inspirational and Positive Attitude Blog of The Year because I just won’t accept.  If you are looking for a place to gripe you’ve come to the right place…tell me your tale of woe in the comments because – hey – misery loves company.  I’m joining Beverly’s Pink Saturday  even though it’s hard to be cranky when Pink is involved!
