I slept great last night!
Today I kept on with the icing plus I started some weight-bearing as I walked with my crutches. This hurt like hell! One trip to the mailbox took frickin' forever! Funny how some steps just hurt a tad, but sometimes I must turn the angle or something and the pain is serious! But I am definitely a wimp when it comes to pain.
I needed the pain pills today for sure, especially in the morning. Michael and I went to lunch (I was going stir crazy!) and that proved to be my undoing! Thank God for Vicodin!
I kept forcing my 'semi-walking' with my crutches all day long. And even a little bit of walking with no crutches. By mid-afternoon things started getting much better . . . pain diminished and I skipped my late afternoon pain pills. Went to bed early (about 9 pm)
But woke up about 12:30 with the pain back! Plus, it felt like I had some swelling (but I can't be sure, as the knee is still all wrapped up.) Took two Vicodin, re-started ice. Ahhhhh!
Hey . . . I warned you this was going to be boring!
