I'll Be Back Soon. Really!

In turning on the computer after a couple of weeks and looking at the gobs of junk mail and overwhelming amounts of blog reading I have neglected, I realize that the planet has still turned on its axis without my presence! The nerve!

There are all my favorite blogs to catch up on, books that have been published without my knowledge, and so many other things that don't take me into account. Can you believe it?

I have an excuse, though. I got the other knee replaced a couple of weeks ago and am still shaking off the anesthesia (and blood thinners, pain meds, etc.) and am barely conscious enough to write this, but I thought I had better. If it sounds funny just blame the drugs. Going to PT (pain and torture) 3 times a week plus the recommended, at home, masochistic behaviors I indulge in daily has turned me into less than a pleasant conversationalist. The Cooker has been hauling my sorry carcass around to these appointments and Stitch has been taking care of the farm. Between the two of them I have been allowed to be completely useless. While that sounds pleasant it has actually become rather annoying.

My Kindle crapped out a few days ago, so I am more in charge of my own brief moments of entertainment. While fixing it is probably a relatively simple soldering job I still need to be fairly lucid in order to do it. I figure an hour of 90% consciousness should do it. I have yet to have that big a moment though.  I hope to start catching up on all the brilliant, entertaining, an insightful posts I am so used to reading from all of you, but I think it's time for another nap.

And down I go.

Good grief Jono! Please take care, recover, and for gosh sakes don't worry about "the Internets."

Look after that knee you old drama queen!

Sioux said...

Jono--A second knee job? You must be reeeeally old. ;)

Fix the Kindle so you can entertain yourself, relax, and take a nap for those who can't.

From the stories of a friend whose husband had knee replacement surgery recently, I understand that the pain and physical therapy afterwards are tough to deal with.

Take care of yourself; wishing you speedy healing. The Internets can go on without you for a little bit (though we do miss you and your posts).

Life gets in the way a bit sometimes. As it should.
Look after yourself (and that knee).

I was wondering why you didn't show up in my site meter. I thought that perhaps my serial fiction had finally crossed the line…

Feel better soon, Jono. Take as much time as you need to recover.

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Take care of you. (smile)

From one medically challenged person to another, take it easy.

Hope you are up and running soon.

A friend of mine had both knees done many years ago and we thought we should have a party and introduce his knees to each other as they had not met in years - a result of a life on horseback, bad horse, bad cattle and good hockey.

Both of my knees give me problems; but I think I had rather gimp around than go through the knee replacement ( and possibly still end up with trouble)

Mayhaps I will change my mind when I start crawling up and down the stairs.

Best of luck on recovery

I noticed you'd been uncharacteristically quiet :)

For what it's worth you write a very coherent post for someone so recently back from the chop shop. Take care of yourself.

You take care of yourself and feel better soon jono. Thank heavens for the Cooker and Stitch!

Please tell me they gave you Six Million Dollar Man knees and you can now jump tall buildings. Preferably while making this sound.

Oh, and get well soon!

Wishing you a speedy and full recovery! Hang in there!

Recovering from knee surgery ain't fun, as I learned from an entire summer spent laid up after a several patella tendon. Enjoy the pain meds while you can.

Diane Henders said...

Oh, ouch! I hope you feel better soon! Hang in there...

Hope you are up and at 'em soon. I realized after a walking vacation that I will likely have to bite the bullet and have the second knee done as well I would love to hear how you feel the second time around worked for you. I am not looking forward to it, but I learned a lot from the first surgery.

Do those exercises!!!

How are you doing, Jono? I miss you, but I appreciate your visits. xo

Knatolee said...

Hope you and your knee are feeling much better very soon. In the meantime, relaaaax! :)
