    @beachy I am doing okay. Some pain today but that’s my own fault for having too much fun with my cousins and my daughter last night. I also didn’t take 8pm,12am or 4am dose’s of pain meds because I wanted to drink a Mikes Hard Lemonade. How are things with you? I hope you are doing well and...

    I love ice on my knee. One of the Pt’s I went to years ago had the huge ice packs that are the length of your leg and wrapped around and had Velcro to close. They were kept in a deep freezer. Man I loved those things. Sure would be nice to have one of those. Anyways, my point is I LOVE ice on...

    My son is silly. He made me keep his gun since I am laid up and home alone. I kept it because it makes him feel better about leaving me home alone. I don’t really think I need it though. Before my surgery we used to go to the range at least once a month and he makes me load, unload and...

    Thanks @Celle and @Josephine. Sounds right. I was thinking they were from swelling where the strips were. But I do see how applying them with too much tension would cause that. Thanks so much for the replies I was over reacting for a minute there worrying about infection and freaking because...

    @Jockette right the muscles need to heal as well. Thanks it is so good to be home. I am so glad I decided not to go to the rehab center. Before My daughter leaves in the morning she hooks me up for when I am in my bed.
