YIPPEE--MUM IS HOME

Cookie's mum here: Cookie very kindly handed over the blog to me to give you an update. Well, I am home from the hospital. I did not have my laptop with me, so could not blog for a couple of days. Tuesday morning I was just lying on the couch; I moved my left leg (same one that hurt couple of weeks ago) and it started to hurt. Within about 15 minutes the knee was hurting so badly that I could not put ANY weight on it -- it was FAR worse than 2 weeks ago. I used my LifeAlert button and called for an ambulance. The firemen/EMT's were really nice and Cookie behaved herself and did not try to run out. I literally only took the very basics and we were on the way to the hospital. On a scale of 1-10, the pain was a 20!!!! It was really painful when they transferred me from one thing to another and did x-rays! At first they were gonna send me home; but I told them there was no way I was gonna be able to get in and out of a taxie; then they started saying that because I live on my own, they would not release me except to go to a nursing home -- I told them that was not going to happen!!! We got to the ER around 11:30 and at about 6 pm they took me up to a room. They told me this room was temporary, but that I should order some dinner -- which I did. Finally, at about 8 pm they took me to the final room. I can tell you, I am surprised no one in Blogville heard me yelling when they were transferring me from gurneys to beds etc!!! Until around noon today, the only time I got up was to go to the bathroom -- they got a commode cos I could not use a bedpan. The floor doctor yesterday told the nurses I should get up and walk!!!! When the nurse told me that, I burst into laughter -- I am in a wheelchair and can hardly walk ANYWAY!!!! Anyway, this morning a physical therapist brought a walker in and had me try to walk in my room, which was not too bad. When I came home, they called a cab -- my nurse and I waited a really long time, but I finally got home. The driver went up; to my neighbor's apt to get her walker and I made it home. Of course, Cookie was very happy to see me. I will tell you about her little escapade with Krysta this afternoon, and then I am going to lie down in bed for the rest of the evening. Back to Cookie: Cookie here: I was hoping that mum hadn't heard about my escapade, but I shoulda known that Krysta would tell her!! When Krysta came, I got out and took off. I made sure that Krysta stayed right behind me (I still don't have my tags!). I kept turning and grinning until she caught up with me and brought me home!! I am REALLY glad that mum is home. I am gonna tuck her into bed with Sixpence and let her sleep. Will catch up with everyone tomorrow. Again thanks for the POTP and your good wishes for mum ttfn and toodle pip cookie

    1. Mum says they don't know what is wrong!!! The x-rays and bone scan showed that there was fluid on the knee -- the knees are artificial (done in 1996). She and doctor are gonna meet in January and decide whether or not to replace!!!!
