Well, 2 weeks ago this coming Tuesday (Nov. 6) I went out to feed chickens and such. Was walking across the cement driveway we have, slipped on wet leaves and fell down. Went down on my left knee - which I had a total knee replacement Nov. of 2011. Called 911, rescue took me to hospital, x-rays showed what I already knew: broken leg. I broke the femur (thigh bone) at where the artificial knee was at. My surgeon did surgery the next day and was able to rebuild the bone around the artificial knee. He did not know if he would be able to do that until he got into the leg and see if he could find enough bone to keep the original knee thing. However, I can not put any weight at all on the broken leg for 12 weeks. If the repair gets messed up, he will have to do surgery, cut away bad damaged bone, put in another kind of knee replacement. It is one that has very little success when used, but the only kind that can be used in that case. If he does happen it would not be successful, then they would have to take the leg. I am in a rehabilitation facility for the next 12 weeks/3 months. I have ok days and not ok days. It is hard to keep the fear down about the leg healing right. Also hard to keep my spirits up about being in here for 3 months - which means: Thanksgiving, Christmas and my 40th wedding anniversary. Plus the fact 3 months sounds like forever.
