Two weeks ago I sat through and participated in a long but productive meeting. A six month plan was mapped out for the corporation and although tired we were all pleased with the possibilities the hovered on the horizon. Then I stood up at the conference table. It was the last able bodied step I was able to take. That cranky right knee had gone as far as it was going to go. It locked tightly in place. Future and plans suddenly seemed elusive at best. An emergency room visit later followed by a trip to the primary doc and then the orthopedic specialist,,,total knee replacement in mid-August. Several professionals used words like "bone on bone" and "X weeks of recovery". Groan... I forgot to mention that I am moving on the first...to the other side of the Sound but oddly enough will be much closer to work therefore some of the "green" goals are being met (AND the new home has gas heat, a real attached garage and a huge fenced yard for the pups)...the jury is still out on the corporate agenda but what the heck...I can write policy and procedure from home.
I will not be participating in the photo challenge as I can not bear weight on the right leg. As I am unbelievably ungainly on crutches adding a camera to the mix might prove dangerous to me and possibly any other living creature near me. Trying to pack for the move is enough of a challenge but as there is no choice...it is slowly getting done...one box at a time.
In the mean time, I will write about this little life and continue to follow the blogs of my cyber- neighbors. Here to all of us...wishing everyone a happy remainder of the summer.
