Well, well, well....

A lot can change in a short amount of time.  I last posted in late August and since then I have injured my leg, went to the doctor multiple times, had an MRI plus X-rays, finally found out I tore my meniscus, and have had knee arthroscopy surgery (a partial meniscectomy).  Well then!  Recovery has been difficult just because I am an independent person and asking people to do everything for me has been tough.  It's been a week since my surgery and my knee is feeling pretty good though!  I went from not being able to walk, to crutches, and then to a cane.  I actually can walk without anything right now, but keep the cane around just in case.  :]

However, this month and a half long process has started to make me nervous for my upcoming Peru trip.  I believe walking around will be fine, but the hike may be an issue.  There is an option to take a train for those who are unable to do the hike, but I just can't bring myself to be okay with taking that.  I just feel like I made it all the way to Peru for this trip, and then I can't even do the biggest highlight.  I'll keep you posted on what happens.

How about some good news?!  :D

I am in Texas right now for Thanksgiving.  We stayed with my sister last year, but this year there's more of us so we decided to rent a house about an hour away from my sister's house.  It's beautiful!  It's high up on a hill and overlooks a lake.  :]  I'll post more about it later since we just got here yesterday.  We left Illinois at 7p.m. and just drive throughout the night.....needless to say we all slept very well last night when we were in beds instead of a car packed with stuff.  haha Today we are going wine tasting, because isn't that what all families do the day before Thanksgiving?  ;)  I'll leave you with a picture from the balcony of the house.
