    Hi @allena - it does come. Years of walking with a stick didn't help me much post-op but it is getting better - just very slowly!

    I went to to see my rhumatologist today.He was pleased.He asked when am I getting a knee replacement?i was like whoa!let's not get in a hurry.It may not even be a necessity.Give me time to heal.It's better than it was after all.shaking my head.He meant well I guess.

    That's beautiful, allena.
    Thanks for sharing because Spring hasn't sprung here yet.
    Still snow on the ground but I'll be reminded of what's to come when I stop by to say Hi and see your pretty picture.

    I hope things continue to go well for you and you experience many more months of progress.
    After all, at only 4 1/2 mo post op, you still have lots of room for improvement.
    Have a great Friday!
    @allena

    Yes,I am doing well.I can tell I am improving,but it's at it's at a slow pace.
    The custodian came to my apartment to work on something and was surprised when i walked to the door without a cane.I like being able to walk almost normally even if it isn't very far or on anything but level ground.
    I figure you have to wait till april for spring where you live.I don't know how you survive such cold winters.I think I would freeze to death.It gets cold enough here.
    I am glad you like the picture.:)
    I hope you have a good friday too.
