    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Just wanted to stop in and tell everyone that my daughter’s MRI was clear! Thanks to the Lord! We can all breathe now! And she doesn’t go back for a year which is great. She had been going every six months for a long time. So very thankful for all your prayers!

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Susie! I quit comparing after the first couple months. Didn’t need any more stress, LOL! you mentioned one of the very things that I grew to really dislike about tent camping, the amount of “stuff” you had to take. And if you happened to have rain, you had to dry out the tent and everything...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    I was just about your age Susie when we bought our first camper! We typically camp twice a monthAnd now that we are retired it is great to camp during the middle of week. After Covid happened there was a huge increase in people buying campers and camping and it is harder now to get weekend...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Susie, that was funny and I can’t believe you tent camped that early in recovery. Last summer I camped 4 times and all I did was sit around in camp chairs. There was only 4 steps up into our camper and that was a challenge for me. I have another sad Covid story. A nurse that I used to work...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    @hawk2go You are soooooo right! We know how fast this time flies by when they are little and we also know that we are both older and need to spend as much time as we can with them all while we are able. That was one of my biggest reasons for having my TKA, so that I could be active and...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Our friend with Covid passed late this afternoon. My heart breaks for his wife who I have been friends with for many years. I knew he wasn’t doing well but thought he might pull through. He was such a wonderful person and such a man of God. He adored his wife and daughter. He was very...

    TKR Rubyroo TKR #2

    Rubyroo, yes, it is nice to finally see some progress! The stairs are easier for me now and I don’t dread coming down nearly as bad. I am also grateful that my hamstrings aren’t horribly stiff and painful like they were for so long. I still walk stiff legged mostly towards end of day. The...

    TKR Setback at week 3

    So very sorry Vida for the setback! My quads and hamstrings were some of the worst sources of pain for me in the first 2-3 months. Will be praying for good results from your MRI. Too bad you had to endure an MRI so early in recovery! My current knee recovery has been worse and longer than my...

    Knee Infection* Knee #2 Vent

    I’ve been retired about a year and a half and I am sooooo thrilled to not have to be out in the weather and especially driving in it. The 10 yrs before I retired, I had a traveling nurse job and was on call and often out driving in middle of night. I am thrilled to be retired! Congrats to you...

    TKR My Journey

    I am a little concerned because my L knee that had a PKR in 2016 has really bothered me sometimes more than my new knee. I had limped so badly before and after surgery that I was favoring that knee. Sure hoping that it resolves as I have pretty much stopped limping and that I get the 20-25 yrs...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Still sleeping like a teen in the mornings. I normally am up way before my husband so it is strange but nice. I made a wonderful meal today and made some yummy homemade buttermilk biscuits to go with my chicken noodle casserole. Today my knee clicked/popped some but not bad. And I have also...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    I am very excited to say that I had very little popping:clicking in my knee today. It almost felt like a normal knee except for the stiffness. It felt so great to be walking normally for a few hours! Starting to see that glimmer of light at end of tunnel. update: my daughter is doing much...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    My daughter still struggles especially at night! And she went back to work and that is so stressful and tiring for her. She and another nurse are school nurses at a high school that has 2700 kids. The Covid contact tracing is consuming all of their time. They are on the phone all day long...

    TKR Sharon’s second knee recovery!

    Pretty crazy that I have been sleeping late like a teenager since I had Covid. Glad my husband likes fixing his own breakfast and let’s me sleep! My son in law has Covid now. My grandson went back to school today. My husband hasn’t gotten it yet! Our friend is still on the vent but has been...

    @Vida. Thanks for the kind words! Those grand babies give us a run for our money for sure! Being a grandma is one of the greatest gifts of my life! I hope my recovery story didn’t scare you to death, LOL! I have had to learn that slow and steady wins the race! And that more than once when...
