Hi Everyone,
 
     Came through the arthroscopic surgery very well.  In by 1:30 PM and home by 5:30 PM.  I had very little pain and by Saturday morning was completely pain free.  The knee brace is the only obstacle giving me guff, and at least that comes off tomorrow.  I will also be taking the ace bandages off tomorrow and be able to have a look at the incision sites.  Still restricted as to how much activity I do until I see the surgeon July 9th, but at least I will be able to take short walks and get out in the garden.  They repaired the three tears.  He also found more arthritis than what was seen on the MRI.  Could explain why I have been having to much pain lately.  And the good news is that my potassium level is back up to normal!!!!!

That's great news Laura tongue I'm so glad it went well and that you're recovering quickly! You'll be in that garden in no time. Love, Donna

Feeling even better today, but still taking it easy.  I did a little dead-heading this afternoon...sure felt good to be outside.

Thanks for the reminder, Joy.  I was a bit tired when I came in from the garden.  Still surprised that there is so little pain or discomfort turn .
