Still walking

I had trouble getting out of bed this morning. I thought most of the damage was on my left side, but late last night my right knee refused to straighten. This morning it was red and swollen and still didn’t want to function. My right wrist and shoulder also bothered me.

I skipped my first class; just couldn’t get moving. By 11 am, after a long, hot shower, I was able to walk again and took the bus to my memoir writing class. Amazingly, I was able to walk fairly easily after sitting 2 hours. I find I’m much more comfortable when I continue walking and exercising the knee. I got off the bus at Whole Foods, bought stuff for supper, got another bus and came home. Now I’m back to working on the Japan trip.

  1. Ruthe, I’m so sorry to hear about your fall. Icing your knee might help with the swelling.
    I loved your recent photos from Frick Park. I wish I had such a beautiful retreat in my “back yard.” Take care.
