Re: Elevation questions post PTTD surgery

Thanks for the advice! I am trying to get my family involved in decluttering the house so it will be easier to get around with the knee scooter or crutches, but with 3 boys and all of the gear that goes with them, it is challenging! I better get to it while I can! I am only good on my feet for so many hours now before I have to prop it up since the pain and swelling get too bad later in the day. I wear an aircast for stability now & my balance is not great w/o having that foot flexibility. You never realize how important that is for balance until it is gone! The other day doing lawn work, I fell 3 times....darn uneven ground! I love flower gardening so I am hoping it will all be better by the next growing season!
I should train my dog to be more helpful! She seems to be my mudflap....you'd think she could carry something! take care & thanks for the advice!
