Saw Matt today, and I told him what happened to my knee after the last visit. He looked a bit sheepish and said "I guess we were a bit over enthusiastic because of your progress." He listened to what I said happened, and how many days the pain and swelling... Continue reading

The swelling on my knee has gone way down, and the bruised coloring is fading. It's still more painful than it was prior to last Tuesday, but no where near as painful as it was Wednesday through Friday. I was able to do all of the rehab exercises, although I... Continue reading

It took a few days, but the bruise showed up on my knee. I really don't think it was Matt's intention to have my knee get swollen, sore, and bruised with that one manipulation, but I will request he not do that one again. Have to go refill two prescriptions.... Continue reading

But whatever Matt did to my knee on Tuesday, it still effin' hurts! I mean back to what it felt like 3 weeks post op. I slept for shit last night, and when I got up this morning, my knee was very painful and stiff. I've gone from doing 5... Continue reading

Physio appointment today. Did my knee bend, unassisted, to 104 degrees. Not bad, as I was told the mark we were aiming for was 100 degrees. After some massage, and acupressure treatment, I was able to bend it, unassisted to 108 degrees. I discussed the pain I get on top... Continue reading

Yes, I know it's beta, and there will be bugs. And we have been asked to submit the bugs. The stand alone loads noticeably faster than v2017. It now can do Panorama stitching. It does line up the images perfectly, and does stitch/merge them. However, it doesn't blend the edges.... Continue reading

I have Adobe CS5 Extended. I have had it for a long time. I upgraded it from Adobe CS3 Extended. For years, I have been using it without any problems. Although I have CS6E, I use CS5 to tutor those who have it, and to test plug ins to see... Continue reading

I have 11 Post knee replacement exercises to do every day. The optimum amount would be doing the set 5 times a day. I normally get at least 4 of them done. I have noticed that the first set I do is more for working out the stiffness. It's rather... Continue reading

I went in at 4pm. As we were walking back I told him that I think I had been on my feet, without the crutches, a bit too much yesterday, as my knee felt thick and stiff around 6pm last night. After recounting everything I had done, it turns out... Continue reading

Queen sized, lower than the double. I thought I would have difficulty sleeping in a new bed, but nope. It was so comfortable. I went to bed, pulled the blanket up, and next thing I knew, it was morning. I did have a brief wake up when Wing came back... Continue reading

Both Wing and Alan have been fantastic. I still tend to try to do more than I should, but Alan puts a stop to it quick fast and in a hurry. Wing also is there whenever I need something. I can't bend my knee back far enough to put a... Continue reading

In bed for 8hrs 45 mins. Actual sleep time, 8 hrs 11 mins. I haven't felt THIS rested in weeks. Got up at 5:51, did the usual morning waking routines, and got into my rehab exercises right away. Was able to do over 20 of each one. Not bad seeing... Continue reading

Out of the blue, my Windows 7 computer decided that the OS wasn't genuine... after 2 years. I tried reactivating, and no joy. I headed to Microsoft Help, started a session with a tech. He rebooted the system with all by MS services disabled. After 2 hours of nothing he... Continue reading

Had the surgical dressing removed, and was told it was healing nicely. I had some problems with the medications, and those problems were addressed and taken care of. I have been told that rest, and pain management are paramount for my rehab. Since my liver is so efficient, it filters... Continue reading

Took antiseptic shower with the pre-op soap. Needed a bit of help reaching around my back, so called Wing for assistance. He obliged. Skin feels a bit tight now. Necklace my grandmother gave me, rings, earrings, bracelet, and citrine in a box to keep them safe at home. Have my... Continue reading

Had a phone call from the anesthesiologist as she wanted a full run down of my medical history (or as near as I can fill her in on) and for what will be happening on Monday. It seems I will be given an epidural, and then general, as a way... Continue reading

If you sell something, and it's crap, or not quite as you have described, I will say so. Two different sellers, two different e-markets. Amazon seller sold a used CD. I had no problem with it being used, as the seller said it was in "very good" condition. It arrived,... Continue reading

More pre-op things. Visited a physio to get some pre-op exercises to help stretch, and to see what sort of mobility/stability my current joint can handle. Umm, ow? Then off to the EKG. I have a heart! Who would have thunk it? Normal sinus rhythm. Off to radiology. Enter the... Continue reading

Blood drawn to check for Hep B and C (both will come back negative) HIV (also will come back negative), throat and nasal swabs (not fun) to test for MRSA, and one other liquid test in a little jar (I shall leave that to your imagination). A few days off,... Continue reading

Arthroplasty (knee replacement) is a go. Discussion with Dr S, informed consent form filled out, pre-op XRays and tests scheduled. Meeting with 'joint specialist' on Friday to discuss what pre-op exercises I need to be doing. Because of asthma, and weight, I will be in ICU after surgery for one... Continue reading

After uninstalling, reinstalling, reactivating over and over again, I ended up getting error that I had exceeded the allotted number of activations, so I had to open a different support ticket, giving them the information regarding the above mentioned 'over and over' section. Just shits and giggles, with version 3.1.2... Continue reading

We had some nasty storms a few weeks ago, with strong winds, and driving rain. It overloaded the gutters, shorted out two lights, fried a fuse on the electrical panel, and caused some gyp-board damage. We have never made a claim before. We have to pay the $200 excess, but... Continue reading

This morning I saw sparkling water drops on some pretty purple blossoms, and I noticed both my small Geraldton Wax seedlings (still called seedlings until they reach 1" across the base) were in danger of being swamped by weeds. I pushed the camera out of the way, pulled the weeds... Continue reading

I have been doing a lot of reading about my knee. It's not going to get any better. It might be a bit better than it was 4 weeks ago, but it's not going to get any better. If anything, it will degenerate and get worse. My knee hurts, I'm... Continue reading

I have been instructed to run MBCleaner... again. And do another clean install.. again. My response is as follows. My eyelid just started twitching.. I have to ask, please don't take it personally, what is uninstalling MWBs with MWCleaner for the (checks) 21st time going to fix, that the first... Continue reading
