A couple of weeks ago, we planted some daylilies in our new flowerbed next to the porch. Once again, we get to admire and enjoy beautiful blooms like this one. Oh my, this purple and creamy yellow one is downright delicious.
It’s hard to believe, but today is my bionic knee’s one-year anniversary! Last summer was a rough one, and the experience will probably have to be replayed one more time before this cantankerous body of mine kicks the proverbial bucket. My fingers are crossed that this titanium knee replacement will last me at least 15-20 years. Next time, I know that I will insist on more and stronger drugs, LOL.
I’m walking really well with it these days. Walking on uneven ground is not giving me the fits that it used to, and this has been a significant improvement in the last six months. Going up and down stairs is still somewhat of a challenge, and I usually have to steady myself by using a railing. The numbness and nerve pain still lingers. One tendon still has tenderness, and I may need another cortisone shot in it this summer.
All in all, my knee is getting me where I want to go. I’ll be concentrating on further strengthening exercises before we take our photographic wilderness trips later on this year. Onward!
