Update on my sister

(thanks for the cue, H2O Babe)

My sister is home after her total knee replacement. She spent almost another week in bed. A few days ago, she was able to get out of bed, and she can now put weight on her knee. She's having a problem with some muscle that locked up, so she's working through that, but she's doing ok. She's off the major pain meds, and taking OTC meds instead. Yea!

Kids started school today, so I am sure she got some much appreciated rest!

Am happy to hear things are moving (if somewhat slowly) in the right direction. I can't even imagine what she's been going through.

Glo - I'm relieved to see this update. Have been wondering what had happened.

Is your sister not undergoing physical therapy? That is standard procedure and very necessary (and gut-wrenchingly painful) for recovery, to get range of motion back for satisfactory flexion and extension.
