I'm just about 3 weeks post-surgery. I think some people use the phrase 'simple joys'. I am simply joyful for the ability to shower instead of just bathe, for my flexibility that allows me to get my socks at the end of the bed without bending my knee, for the fact that I can hover in the deep end of a pool in 8 days, and for the clothes that arrived from my online shopping binge courtesy of lululemon. Another simple joy was getting outside on a sunny afternoon to watch a race at my ski club. Every Sunday, my brother, Mitchell, will be racing in the house league. He had the fastest time!
On a sidenote, I've had advanced healing from my cats again. Okay, okay... there's no study showing that licking helps ligament strength but it was incredibly thoughtful, Nikki.
