Overly Optimistic

Those AFL footballers fronting the field the week after an arthroscopy gave me a somewhat misguided view about the realities of my own (minor) knee surgery.

The fact that my surgeon said he wanted me to weight bear immediately led me to assume that I would be able to weight bear immediately. My mistake.  As it turned out that was not possible. Nor was walking and particularly not sewing.

I don't cope with incapacity with any sort of grace or forebearance.  It's all self-pity and panic.  Thank goodness for spring days, pigtails on little girls and visits from old friends.

  1. What pretty photos! I love how elegant those plates look, and the girls' dresses are adorable.

    I hope your recovery goes well, and swiftly.
