@hopalong61 i love reading what your up to. It's great to be able to re-engage in life even if it is only a little at a time. I have a couple of events I've been invited to but that's not for a couple of months so fingers crossed I can stay more than a couple of hours. We are just starting winter here though so I'm not so keen on going out in the cold night air. What a great sleep, I bet you felt refreshed. @SusieShoes thank you for your kind words of encouragement. I feel that I have come a long way in my recovery. My knee is still not where I would like it to be, but I know that will come with time. I have found it's my mindset that has been the biggest hurdle. Now that I have settled down emotionally I can let my body get on with the healing. How great is it to be able to come on here and be able to share with everyone.
