Midlife Tune-Up

Kelly and I are NOT falling apart. We are just getting our Midlife Tune-ups this year. I had knee surgery about two weeks ago. What the doctor thought was two meniscus tears, was one meniscus tear and some arthritis. Sheesh, I'm too young to have arthritis! The surgery went well. I just had to stay off my feet for a couple days. But I'm up and walking fine again. I'm anxious to get back to my exercise. That will be a few weeks down the road I guess.

A couple of days before Christmas, Kelly was out taking care of Scout, our chocolate Lab. Scout was trying to get away and Kelly went after him and slipped on some ice. He landed on his left shoulder. Ouch! He thought things were slowly getting better, but after a month of not having complete mobility he went and had an MRI. He got the results today, and found out that he does have a tear in his shoulder. He sees the doctor next week, but we are sure that he will be having surgery soon. I will fill everyone in soon.

When it rains it pours - right? I'm so glad you're doing better & now that Kelly knows there is an injury he'll be on the mend too. Hang in there!
