End of the day rambling

Saturday, January 25, 2020

Knee situation. Back in the 90's I was hiking and the hill gave way under my left foot resulting in my knee bending inward. I rehabbed and it's been pretty good for 20 something years. It "pops out" occasionally but I can extend it and it returns to "normal". A week ago I made a movement that hurt really bad but that too resolved. On Wednesday, first day of vacation it was once again started being unstable and hurting so I bought a brace similar to one I already have at home. RATS! I truly believe if I work on building leg muscles it will correct and stabilize. Problem is I haven't been consistently weight training. Today, my sister and I went to the pool and did water aerobics, worked the legs a lot. I will like a phoenix rise from this. Word to me he wise, weight lift, it's good ju- ju! Thought you might enjoy the sunset I just witnessed. O, btw, thank you to all you sweet people who contributed to my Motivator of the Day award. Hugs to you!

    I will be facing some PT time as I am getting ready for surgery, after fighting the VA for more than two years, on my left foot to correct it and I am so EXCITED!!!!! I know it will be a tough time after the surgery, but God has it and me and I am looking forward to this!!!!

    Thank you for the beautiful sunset!!!!

    Hope you get more chances to do water aerobics while you are with your sister, great for limb mobility. Loving your images!

    As we age, things deteriorate so maybe get the knee checked w/ xray or MRI when you return from vacay.
