Getting Used to the Reality

November 11, 2010

I waver between accepting the need for a knee replacement and depression over the situation. Even in the pool there is sometimes a distinct pain upon bone-to-bone impact. At those moments the question is “when” not “if”.

I find that I’m constantly thinking about all the things I would like done before surgery. My understanding is that there probably won’t be much physical work except rehab for the first couple of months. While I know that I will have all the help necessary for my care I also know housekeeping won’t be the primary focus for either of the men in this household.

I need to keep focused on organization, housework and the physical conditioning.

Today’s efforts – morning home exercises plus Arthritis Aqua class. And, for morale a much needed perm.
