Leg Cramps

I had my knee replace 11 days ago.  A couple of days ago I started developing leg cramps.  After I do a set of exercises, the muscles in my whole right leg seem to freeze up and I can hardly move.  It is only one specific set of muscles, but it feels like my whole leg.  I now have muscle relaxants to help me.  " Just keep swimming just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming - What do we do? We swim, swim..."( I spend too much time watching "NEMO".)  The nurse said that this happens all of the time.  I even got a full night of sleep last night.  Hurray!

A Surprise!

I am less than 36 hours from my knee replacement surgery. My Dear Hubby has been concerned about keeping my spirits up and my attitude positive. Yesterday when MDH came home home from work he handed me a box. Now, you have to understand, that I LOVE containers, boxes, bottles, jars, cans, etc. I really appreciate a good box. This is the box he handed me.  At the time it wasn't open.  I couldn't believe it.

This was what was in the box when I opened it.  I am so excited.  It can hold 3,500 books for goodness sake and I have permission to buy what books I want (with in reason) during my recovery!

We went to the store and bought a case to carry it in to protect it.  I can't stop grinning.  Thanks to Jim and Megan who helped MDH get this for me!  If this doesn't help keep me occupied I don't know what will.
