Hey everyone. So today I woke up at about 8:30. Yay, the latest I’ve slept recently. I hobbled downstairs. Because my sister was not yet awake, I had to not use crutches to get my breakfast. It was difficult, but I managed. I had a Greek yogurt and some grapes.
I iced my knee and it has been elevated for most of the day.
My sister got up at around 11 and I asked her to get me some cherries. She did, unwillingly but he did it.
Then, at around 2, I got a chocolate craving. It only lasted for a little bit, mainly because my sister went and grabbed a chocolate bar but I knew I couldn’t eat it, so I held back.
I then kept my knee elevated, I iced my knee again and took some pain medication. I just sat around for the majority of the day, because I don’t like going up and down stairs because it hurts. So, I sat on the couch.
Then, at about 5, my dad and mom came home. I assumed my mom was going to make dinner, but she left so i had a banana.
When my mom came home again, she made dinner. She made pork chops, sticky rice, and corn.It was good.
I had a total of 766 calories. That is not very healthy, but I only ate when I was hungry, so, I guess I should have eaten more. If I get hungry later on, I will eat something else. I will let you all know tomorrow.
So, today, my knee has had tremendous results. It is not as swollen, I can walk without crutches, not well, but I can. It still hurts to walk up and down stairs without them, but I am working on it. I know I probably won’t be able to use crutches during physical therapy, so I am preparing for the worst.
