Never got to do gardening today and it wasn't my fault! I walked into the sunroom to retrieve my gardening shirt (an old dress shirt that Himself doesn't wear anymore) and *splat* a few raindrops above me on the glass. I thought we were supposed to be rain-free today. Looked around at the skies and took the shirt off. Instead of playing online I did do a load of laundry, made a batch of tuna salad, and did various other sundry kitchen jobs. Fresh sheets on the bed too. Tomorrow is supposed to be wall-to-wall sunshine. Probably until I go to put my gardening shirt on...

My chest is a lot better today as is my breathing. I have only coughed a few times and had a much better sleep last night.
That's all great news! Being able to sleep with no coughing is definitively a plus. Fingers crossed you continue to feel better.

Sitting here wondering how I'll get through the next week. I got out of bed yesterday morning with a horrendous pain in my left knee.

I could barely walk, even using a cane. Finally went to urgent care this morning where they did x-rays and said there was nothing broken but it was 'probably' a tear in the meniscus of that knee cap and gave me a referral to an orthopedist who will see me in a week with maybe an MRI in my future.

What's almost worse---- I was given a knee stabilizer to wear 24/7 to prevent any twisting of my right leg and the instructions to not walk around.

Well, not walking around is pretty easy (TV, iPad, Kindle) but the damn stabilizer makes it almost impossible to tinkle. And did they not realize how many times I have to tinkle during the day AND night??? OK, TMI

(Men really DO have it easier)

Computer is do-able but uncomfortable. But there is the iPad.

I can't get into my compact car to drive because the stabilizer keeps my leg almost straight!!

ARGHHH! ARGHHH!

Did I say ARGHHHH!!!!?

Right now I don't have the **&)^*$# stabilizer on. Pffffft!

Oh dear. I know exactly the problems of wearing one of those braces. I broke my kneecap twice and had to wear the danged brace for six weeks each time. On the other hand, it was better than surgery and/or a cast.

Yes, it makes it hard to sit on the pot. But, if you sit sorta lopsided near the edge, it's not as tricky.

I was allowed to wear the brace loosely at night. I was sleeping on the couch, rather than going up the stairs to the bedroom, where the risks of sharing the bed also had to be considered. I managed to velcro my leg to the back of the couch.

Good gried cave, how fast do you hop out of bed? Seriously though, I'm sorry you're hurting. And having to deal with that stabilizer. I had hurt my knee when we were hiking Yosemite and had to wear one of those on the plane from LA to Newark NJ to Providence RI after trying to vacation with it for a week. Not fun. Especially when I had to shower and was allowed to take it off only then. Trust me, you'll get the hang of it. The ER doctor thought I had blown my ACL. Turned out to be just one heck of a sprain, thank goodness. Hope you find out you aren't as injured as first though. Good luck.

What are you doing?

Gah! One of my friends took a tumble down her stairs, and was put in an immobilizer as well. Tinkling was a huge problem, they have very tiny bathrooms, and her DH was out of town, so of no help. She has to stick her leg in the shower when she uses the bathroom, the door is set up so she can't sit sidesaddle.

Indeed! Hopefully next time we see her she'll be out of the danged thing.

Cave, I hope you can heal and get rid of your brace soon too!

Dawg, sorry to hear about your friend. That is rough.

I am trying to get Monkey home. She snuck out on me when I was putting my plants out back. The fence isn't totally fixed and she got out under it. I have front and back doors open as she seems to want to come home, just not get caught!

I went out and got some plants and some wool for a new projects and feel not too bad. But I haven't had dinner yet, need to clean the kitchen and slice 7 1/2 loaves of gluten free bread we picked up today. So getting Monkey is not helping.
