Belated Happy New Year

To anyone who still reads my blog.

The sky yesterday morning

Sincere apologies for the long absences of last year, but I think the problem is now solved. I shall explain what has happened and during this show you a few pics.

As you may or maynot remember I had a knee op back in August, which should have solved the problems I was having. Unfortunately the knee pain I had been getting increased. According to my family I just shut down, became inactive and grumpy!

The view this morning

After a considerable amount of physio the specialist decided enough was enough and got me in for steroid injection the week before Christmas. So hubby and I went along, he anethistised my knee then gave me the steroid injections and told me to phone him in 3 weeks.

I could not believe the difference as I walked out the hospital, no pain or anything mainly cos of the anesthetic, but what it told me was actually just how much pain I had been in, I was practically skipping.

Over that weekend my knee kept telling me I had pain, but when I really concentrated I know I didn't, I just think the pain receptors or whatever had got used to working they hadn't switched off.

So here we are in the New Year, I feel a new woman, my daughters say I'm scary and they can't keep up and apparently I'm not as grumpy any more. Long may it continue.

  1. Glad to hear that things are on the up, Libby. Let's hope that 2010 is better than 2009 for you. Your garden looks wonderful covered in snow. We had a huge snowfall yesterday and we're forcast more during the week.

  2. Welcome back, Libby :-) Happy New Year! I really pleased you are feeling so much better. Just imagine the fun you can have in the spring when life returns to our garden.

  3. I was wondering where you had got to!
    Glad to know you are feeling frisky again, there's nothing like painful knees to make even the happiest person miserable and grumpy.
    Nice pics of your garden in the snow.
