This Much I Know

Confirmation

The one thing that our recent road trip to Illinois confirmed is that I must schedule the knee replacement and get on with life. The current conditions are intolerable for the lifestyle I desire. Many aspects of travel were complicated with my inability to move comfortably, walk very far, or stand for any length of time. With one hand needed for the cane there’s only one available to deal with purse, keys, coat or anything that needs carried.

I enjoy traveling too much to be so limited and uncomfortable. For two days afterwards I could barely function enough to get out of bed and fix simple meals, Returning to aqua arthritis classes for two consecutive days have helped some.

I know what’s necessary, it’s up to me to suck it up and get it done. Then there will be a hopeful future.
