Happy New Year to all!!! I want to wish everyone a healthy and happy 2011!!!!
Here in Venice there is a great celebration about to kick off in St. Mark's square for the countdown to midnight with entertainment and fireworks over the lagoon. This year, we stayed in.
Today marks two weeks at home after the knee surgery, and boy it's been two busy weeks. My orders from the doctors and my physical therapist were to walk, walk, walk, and do my exercises every day, so that's exactly what I've been doing. We walked in the snow. We walked in Aqua Alta. When it's been really too cold, I walk a circuit in the apartment with my dog Sam trailing behind me every step of the way.
Every day gets a little better and there is a little less pain. I spend most of my day working my knee- either walking, or doing exercises, followed by an ice pack break. This week I did my first walk outside solo. After the holidays I will be returning to Fate Bene Fratelli for a few weeks of outpatient rehab.
There are people in the streets yelling, and setting off small fireworks. It's that time! Auguri, tutti!!!
