Luigi is busy~!~!

Here is my Luigi~!  He loves to color and while coloring I just love his tongue wags outside of his mouth.. Ben uses a lot of lip balm.  We always have lots of fun when he comes to GranAnnie's house..
      Knee is getting much better. Today at Physical Therapy I was able to bend the knee to 100 and my straightness was 6.. Yeah ~ it's getting better. The pain this evening is not too bad.. I feel like I've had a turning point and things are getting better.. Still lots of pain and I still have lots of work to do to get this knee back to being healthy and able to walk again with no pain.. It's been 5 weeks since surgery.. This is major surgery so one can't think that it's going to be an easy recovery.. It is not..   So I'm working hard ~ being patient and keeping a positive attidute is most important when going through a Total Knee Replacement.. Do the exercises daily and know it's not going to get better in a short time.. Won't be long and I'll be on the mend and back to living again.. 
         My son Rich came to see Dave and I on Saturday and Sunday.. He lives in Barrington, Illinois and it was so wonderful to have him here for a couple days.. He left for home this morning to be with his family. It was nice to see him even thou it was a short time..
         Have a Tiggeriffic Day~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Hey Bennie!! So cute to see him concentrating so hard on his coloring. He sure is from our family since he does the tongue thing. Very cute!!
