Sorry, it’s been awhile since I’ve written in my blog. There’s been a lot going on around here since last I wrote.
We love autumn at our house and have a lot of things we normally do to get the house ready for winter, put up apples, hunt and so forth. This year our plans may be a bit different. Poor Mark is limping around with a gimpy knee.
He hurt himself on the job last week and it turns out he tore the cartilage up in his knee. Normally this isn’t a terribly big deal, but, when you make your living in HVAC and have to lift, kneel, climb ladders and such, it can end up being a much bigger deal. It’s a scary thing when you have to depend on something as simple as your knee to do your job.
He’s having surgery tomorrow and then it will be 6-8 weeks before he goes back to work. Hopefully he’ll end up without lifting or other types of restrictions. I don’t think there’s any light duty work attached to his particular occupation. We’re saying our prayers!
Maybe if he’s very lucky he’ll be recuperated enough to enjoy part of the fall’s regular activities! At least the doctor tells him he wants him to get up and walk pretty quickly so he won’t be as chair-bound as we first feared. That, at least, is good news!
Say your prayers and hope old “hopalong” does okay tomorrow and things heal up really well!
