A Stitcher's Stitchings

Oh, for the love of cross stitching….and a few ramblings

Oh my knee!! May 30, 2012

Filed under: Ramblings — K. Marie @ 12:51 AM

So I mentioned that I’m banned from doing housework for now and I wish I could say it was for a better reason but sadly it’s not. I’ve been having trouble with my left knee for a few weeks now and I was referred to a specialist after having X-rays and an MRI done. I went today and took Bug (my nickname for my daughter) with me because hubby had to work. Anywhoo….I was told that I probably have tendonitis and was given a shot in my knee. Bug saw the needle and covered her eyes saying “Mommy I don’t want to look!!” I told her it’s okay I wasn’t going to look either. She said (while still covering her eyes with one hand), “Mommy but you can hold my hand so it won’t hurt.” She’s such a sweetie but I didn’t want to squeeze too hard so I passed on the offer. Lol.

AFTER I was given the shot the dr told me that it was going to be numb for about an hour and a half (and I’m thinking that’s so awesome I won’t feel the pain) then it’ll wear off and I’ll be in worse pain than I was before for about a DAY and a half (WHAT??!! Why didn’t he tell me this before giving me the shot??). So after we ran around to the store while I could still walk we went and picked up hubby from work and my knee had definitely stopped being numb. It was hurting like a beast!! Hubby sat me down and told me I was not to get up from the couch and he brought me my food so I could eat it there and he cleaned up afterwards too. When it was time to come upstairs he has to half carry me half help me hop because he was so tired and ready to crash.

Then while I was tucking Bug in she told me that I better hold on to something when I’m walking and I better not carry the basket up the stairs while daddy was at work. Come to find out hubby had a talk with her and told her to snitch on me if I did anything except rest. Lol. It’s going to be an interesting day tomorrow (or today actually because it’s almost 1 in the morning) trying to move around without being caught or in too much pain. At least I’ll have some time to get some school work and some stitching in!!  😀

    I am so sorry to hear about your knee. What we stitchers will do to get stitching time in, Ha! I know exactly what your hubby is talking about. My back is giving me problems right now and hubby has told the boys the same thing. It’s hard not to “do” when you are a “doer”. But you sit and relax and let your family do the work for now and stitch and do school work. Let your knee heal. I hope quickly.

      Oh I know Ginny!! I got in trouble by my daughter a couple of times today already. Lol. I’m so used to doing things for hubby and bug first that it’s become second nature to me and I don’t realize I’m doing it when I shouldn’t be. Lol.

      Oh how I wish I could have this time to stitch without being forced to “rest”. Lol. But I’m glad I’ve got it. I’ll take it however it comes. ;-D
