today is even better.

Sleeping sucked pretty well - just couldn't get comfy most of the night, and knee staying immobile for long periods just makes it ache like a fucker. So when I got up this morning, asked Lisa if we could pack up Dax and head to the dogpark by the airport. That way I could hobble around on crutches and work off some of my fidget, and Dax could get some exercise too.

Walking around the park, knee loosened up nicely and I started to put more and more weight on that leg. By the time we made it all the way around, I was able to walk slowly and carefully with minimal support on the crutches. Once we got home, I put the crutches aside and started to walk around the house without them.

Have spent the rest of the day so far playing wii, and watching ghostbusters + mythbusters while doing more repetitions of the exercises, all of which are making my knee feel more limber and happier - with the exception of the leg raises, which hurt the most at this point due to my patella tendon getting yanked out. But that'll have to just be until it heals, at least in the mean time I can work the surrounding muscles so they don't turn to goo.

Also - today I can remove all the bloody bandages and replace them with new gauze/dressing. Which is good since there was some rad blood and gore leakage thru the dressing that's been on there since surgery. Dogs at the park were extra interested in me for that ;).
