Happy Saturday everyone! Today was a day where I really noticed how awesome it is to be pain free in my knee (well, one knee at least!) It's a beautiful day here in Indiana and I took the dog out for a little walk, took some beautiful tree pictures, and even picked up some sticks that had fallen during the last storm. Walking through the yard, to get to the place where we dump sticks, it's a fairly big downhill drop. For the last few years, walking downhill has been horrible with both knees. Just that particular angle on my knees caused huge pain. Today I noticed that my surgical knee was able to walk down the hill and absolutely no pain!!! Yes, there is still muscle tightness, but NO PAIN! I'm so ready to get the other knee done now and look forward to no pain in both knees!
So I guess my message here is that the surgery, and pain, and recovery are WORTH IT!
