Diary of a New Knee - Part 22 - Healing Nicely

Since my surgery 7 weeks ago today, this is the first time I've felt like I am making real progress. I attended my usual Wednesday therapy session and left with a smile on my face. I think that is the first time that has happened. Bless Stephanie for putting me on a leg bend weight machine last, where I stretched both legs with 30 lbs of weight on each leg and then slowly released the stretch without clanking the weights. It felt so good. I left therapy with a knee that had not fallen asleep during the icing/electrode session.  I can straighten and bend my leg better than before. Still not totally healed, but I feel like I am going to achieve that goal someday.

I wish the same could be said of my Kenmore washer. It had another part replaced yesterday. Today, I started my laundry and wham! The noise is awful. Hoping this can be diagnosed and fixed in a timely manner because it dumped at least a quarter inch of water in the pan underneath.
