Fourth and Fifth Week After Knee Replacement

I blogged about Larry having total knee replacement surgery, but there is just a bit more to it!

When I first typed up the post about Larry having surgery on Jan 18 it was just 3 weeks after surgery, and Larry looked as kewl as a cucumber walking with the aide of therapist and walker. Check him out after his 4th and 5th week post-surgery!

Now don’t get freaked out if you need Total Knee Replacement surgery, unless of course you are a stubborn soul such as our beloved Larry. In his case, he needed the surgery done 10 years ago! But came up with excuses year after year until he finally damaged discs in his back BECAUSE of his bad knee(s)

Larry was told by his drs that he would be able to use his tractor and ride horses after three months, and they were right! Larry went on his first pain free (left) knee horse back ride in years. Now if he’d only stubborn down and get his other knee replaced. Ahh well, that will be for another year I guess, or decade perhaps?

Knee Replacement Surgery – Vid #2

This video is in no way to make fun of Larry or his pain, but rather a warning to YOU, IF you too need Knee Replacement…… Don’t Put It Off! The healing time is much longer and you risk the health of your back. OK, maybe it was a little bit of an………… “I told you so”!

Knee Replacement & My Websites

Been awhile huh? And for good reason!
 Larry had total knee replacement surgery on Jan 18 and its been a slow process to get where he is today, and thats still a long way from where he wants to get!
 A really good Physical Therapist from Home Health comes to the house 3 times a week and really gives Larry a workout, so much that the therapist tells him to exercise his knee very little the next day. Then Jeremy (the physical therapist) comes again the next day and Larry has a thorough workout!
 So the feeding of all the horses, cows, dogs, and all the other things Larry done, now falls to me- yipee! Then its back to the house and either putting the workout machine under Larrys leg (twice a day, 2 hours each time) or taking it back out from under his leg- and that thing is heavy!!! or getting ice packs under his knee, or putting them back up. Its pretty much like caring for an invalid, except Larry is using a walker and goes to the living room to his recliner after his morning workout.
 So yep, its been awhile since I posted in either of my blogs. I have been working on a page with sub-pages, but they will remain private for the time being.
 I’m getting back on the computer more, so I’ll keep you posted on Larrys healing, which will take a little longer than usual since his knee was in such bad shape.

 Oh, and for those that have ordered any Electric Oil Warmers or Fragrance Oils from my webstore….. I’ve been getting your orders out but I do apologize for the ones that have been sent out a couple days later than usual.

BTW—- I will be closing my ebay store within a few days, so go on over to my wholesale store and get the exact same items as is in my ebay store, except get them at much lower prices! My Fragrance Oils remain LOWER THAN WHOLESALE! and all Electric Oil Warmers, Candle Warmers, Tart Burners, and NASCAR Candle and NASCAR Tart Warmers are at much lower prices than what you find in my ebay store :)—– ALL NASCAR ITEMS REMAIN BELOW WHOLESALE!
