An update on life in the country

It has been less than two weeks since Hubby had his knee replacement surgery and he is doing very well, even walking without crutches in the house. I will be taking him to his first physical therapy session later today.

Before he went in, he made sure the freezer was full, the pantry was full, the fire wood was brought to the back porch so I won't have to go far for it. He even organized someone to come in and mow the lawn and do garden work while he is recovering. And, I certainly appreciate all that planning.

That old adage, 'You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone' surely rings true. He happily did all the driving. He voluntarily topped up the shopping on his way home from work. He picked up prescriptions and other needs on his lunch hour.

It seems a bit out of kilter with me doing those things, but we both look forward to getting back to our 'normal' routine as soon as he's cleared to drive.

My husband does a lot of things for me, too. You have a wonderful husband, and I'm glad he's doing well.

I had a knee replacement and I know what he is going through, some good days and some not so good but in the end is worth it. It's nice to get back to normal and I am sure he will appreciate what you do for him, I think he is a very thoughtful husband.
