    I feel for you with arthritis in your knees. I had that plus I fell and busted both knees and fell again four years later and busted my ankle. So I was barely able to walk for years. Plus I have multiply problems with my back. I am waiting to hear about surgery. I finally had both knees replace in 2009 and had to have another knee surgery in 2010. I was in therapy for 19 months. I am just now starting to get around good. My back is my only draw back. I still get out there and work in the yard and garden pots. Sometimes I have to sit to finish what I am doing. I am determined. I don't know how much I will be able to do once the surgeries began. I have to have a temporary implant first to see if it works, then on to a permanent one if it does work. Well it is storming here really bad. I guess I need to get off the computer and unplug it. There is a lot of lightening. Take care.
