Stitches & not the sewing kind

Hi, I hope all is well with everyone today!

Had a doc appointment today - I'm happy to say that the stitches are now gone! Yay! Although it hurt a little. The specialist was getting ready to take them out & I told him that it's a sensitive area with me, so he layed the chair back because he was afraid I'd faint! But as he pulled each one, it felt like I was getting stabbed by pins. Ouch. I'm glad that they are out now though. Still have to remain in the boot for 2 more weeks at least - bummer. But all in all, I can walk in it some. So it's better than hobbling around with the walker a few days after surgery! As soon as it's approved, I'll start therapy, so I'm hoping for a quick recovery! Best of all, I can take a real shower now! I'll probably use the RV shower since it's easier to get in & out of. My friend's shower that I use is in a big garden tub & is hard to get in & out of.

Isn't this paper cute? It's what the podiatrist office uses on their chairs to prop feetseys on top of.

And they casted my, not for a movie, for orthotics baby!

No one needs to see this enlarged huh?

****OK, at the end of this post, I promise to show ya'll the stitches if you want to see them. But I'll save that for the last thing as some folks may NOT want to see that! I actually don't even want to see that...****

And tomorrow, I'll get my vacuum out & get the RV cleaned up. YES, it really needs vacuumed badly! I have a stick vacuum, but lately, it seems to be less effective & trips breakers, so it's time to get rid of it. So I'll be using my Shark, which I love, but I have to put my hand weights on the rugs or it sucks them up too. ;-)  I will be taking the RV over to Camping World on Friday for an estimate on the overhead damage from a few weeks ago. I'll be a happy camper once that job is done!

And I wanted to share a picture of a wonderful horse. Well actually both horses are cool, but check out how BIG this horse is! He's a Staffordshire horse. They both belong to friends of mine, Stacey & Cheri. Stacey stood under the horse so we could all see how big that boy is. And he's like a big puppy dog. He runs up to you & kind of scares you because he looks like he may not stop!

OK, now for the stitches...scroll down







Just wanted to be sure that if no one wanted to see it, that there would be enough space for them not to view this. I don't like things like this myself. But it was kind of funny when I asked the doc if I could take a pic before he removed the stitches & the look on his face! He thought it was odd & well, I guess it rather is!
You can click on the photo to enlarge it, but not me! :-p

ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow!!

Once again, I'm thankful for having the RV to recover in. Everything is just a couple of steps away & way easier for me!

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~


  1. OUUUUUCH.... yeow... glad that's over for ya but HAhaaaa... I almost chickened out looking at her stitches... I'm a real sissy wimp.

    On to recovery! as you say... yay!

  2. Glad to see you're making progress on mending.

  3. Looks good and I hate having stitches out but it beats the staples they used on the other knee. Now for the therapy and you are good to go.

  4. Ouch, staples! Ouch! They'd might have to give me a local for that! Especially in that area of the body...ugh.
    Thanks everyone - I do feel better today. Had to do too much walking yesterday, so I did not feel very good. But today is a better day - better day weather wise too! Windows open, 73 degrees in RV, nice :-)
