Knee Update: 7 weeks post op

We really can't believe that the time has gone by so fast! Rob's recovery has really been remarkable especially compared to his other experiences with knee surgery. We went back to San Diego for Rob's second post surgery visit with his surgeon. Rob's progress since his last visit has improved 150%. I am so proud of his ability to *suck it up* and mentally set himself up to heal through the pain. The doctor has released him to walk with one crutch and to ease his way to walking without the use of the crutch at all!! Rob is pretty strong when it comes to challenges like this and was walking without the crutch the next day! He is pretty amazing!

He has also been going to out patient physical therapy and LOVES the people that work with him. He says that they really know their stuff. He will continue his physical therapy three days a week for now.

This time when we went to San Diego we decided to enjoy a little dinner with my brother and sister-in-law, their family, and my Aunt Sharon & Uncle Mark. Kelly was so kind to make a scrumptious roast and some YUMMY spice cake!! It was nice to spend some time with them down in their neck of the woods.

After the doctor appointment we had a little time and decided to drive a little way down to the La Jolla beach and enjoy the view. We leave you with pictures from our view from the the ranger station:
