Missing in Action!

I doubt many have missed my posts because I haven't been keeping up my blog too good lately. 

 I had a knee replacement 5 weeks ago so that is one reason I've been away. It was rough at first, but my knee is doing good now. 

 My dear husband has been so good to take care of the house and tending to me. I don't know what I'd have done without him. I didn't have to go to a rehab or nursing home after the hospital. My doctor wanted me to come home and do physical therapy here along with using the CPM machine. Next week, I will be going to out patient rehab nearby. 

 In another week, I can officially start using a cane, but I've been practicing. My PT says I'm strong enough.  I haven't been out much, but I do walk outside everyday the weather permits.

 It's been a bummer in that I couldn't sew and make things for Christmas. I'm so glad I did make the little grands a special gift before I had surgery. I will post them after our family Christmas. 

 I do read a lot of blogs, but I missed out of doing that too for a while as I couldn't sit at the computer long at the time. I'm trying to get back into my old routines, but gosh, it's hard. 

 I did crank up the embroidery machine this week to monogram these stocking for my grandson and his girlfriend. He just bought his first home so he wanted to have a new stocking. The stockings were bought at Hobby Lobby.

 I do hope to try and blog more often. I don't want my blogging efforts to completely bite the dust!

Happy you are blogging again. I am trying to get back with blogging.

Glad you are on the mend, I can't imagine going through that but you will be good as new.

The embroidery looks great.
