Surgery went smoothly, and it confirmed that my knee was toast. I was in the hospital 2 nights, and let out Wednesday pm right before Thanksgiving. The coolest thing was that earlier in the day on Wednesday, they asked me if I'd like to go to the pool for Physical Therapy.
I love water, so I said "Sure!" They put a water-proof bandage on my 5" sutured incision and wheeled me over there. They had a wonderful in-house heated pool decked out just for rehab, 98 degrees, submerged rails to hold onto, and a treadmill in neck-deep water!
I was walking around in the water, and on the treadmill, backwards and forwards. It was HUGE for my psychologically because I felt like I could DO something.
Pain has been very awful. The sharp, stabbing pain has gone (after 5-6 days of it), but the throbbing aching is still there. I'm doing lots of PT and am on LOTS of high doses of pain pills round the clock.
But I'm getting better. The Lord is seeing me through it, like I knew he would.
Kina, that is SO WONDERFUL! I'm happy for you!

first let me say this is a wonderful group. haven't read all the posts yet but from what I've seen ... the Lord has seen the pain in your hearts and led all of us here to help and strengthen each other and glorify Him.
so... here's my story...
The fact that anyone is here at this site says a lot about where they are spiritually ... i think everyone would agree we're a little off the main stream, for the purpose of walking closer with our Lord, watching and waithing for His return ... and I was raised in this type of family. very bible based, very focused on Jesus. I owe my whole perspective and outlook to this upbringing, but have gotten away from it lately.
Also, i don't share some of their convictions, especially about fellowship issues... and ... long and short ... am engaged to a "baby" Christian from a catholic background. (that's not going over too well with them)
I was telling the Lord what was on my heart about the whole situation ... the torn-ness between my family and my roots, even my early dreams about mission work overseas, and the love of my life. I said, I can't go back to the way things were.... He said "but you can go forward from here."
so, i think I've been challenged ... to stop making the little daily compromises .. to refocus .... to stand, live, move and breathe in the Word, and start making the tiny half-conscious moment by moment decisions that include the Lord Jesus and work toward closer fellowship with Him.
The Lord knows I can't do this by myself, but He will help me as much as I allow Him. He's not telling me to drop everything and run home, or hop a plane to feed the hungry in timbuctoo, or break the engagement, or even put things on hold, but I have been challenged. Maybe one or all of those things will happen, but that is in His Hands. I know one thing will happen - I'll be closer to Him, and He may use that to get through to Jeff.
it's our behavior, not our preaching
do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God
fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man
be perfect, as our Father in heaven is perfect
here's to getting back on track
