    I'm envious of your stair abilities! I'm still working on stable support while transferring weight from one leg to the other during stair climbing.

    I just managed to go down a few steps foot over foot without too much trouble. :happydance::spin::dancy:

    There are 4 steps up to my chiropractor’s office and they must be just the right height for my knee. I should probably make the 20 minute drive there every day just to go up and down those 4 steps.

    @Jockette well done on the steps. People would probably start talking about you if you turned up every day

    I went through the same thing. I still "noticed" things up to 3 years post op, but I started differentiating between pain vs noticing something weird roughly 1½ years post op.

    Thanks, @Lindylee

    I had an eye Dr appointment this morning, so that was our outing for the day :heehee: and we’ve decided not to go out to dinner, my husband doesn’t feel well.

    I made some crab salad and we’ll just have a light dinner. I’m happy to stay home.

    It is classically timeless.
    And it is inspiring to see longevity in marriages.
    Hope you have a peaceful, uneventful evening...that's the best kind in my book.
