it is thoughtful but even though I endure some pain playing HFT I try to do as much as my body allows me and really don't won;t to be tagged as disabled. If I had wanted to do that I would have bailed out of the working life early and drawn my full SS instead of waiting to 63 and taking a $300 hit from SS for drawing early but I was laidoff anyway and no job prospects.
I always stay busy around the house, pop X Tylenol and dream of better days. LOL! Yup!... still dreaming of getting back into those 34x30's I still have hanging in my closet. Thought of working back into the body I had in my 30's have dwindled but i haven't thrown out my bowflex or treadmill yet. In fact I still try to use my bowflex every now and then. Hopefully, after I get my new knees I will be able to resume a more fruitful life. Anyway I am presently challenged and on "The Edge" of something. Growing up the Reverend used to call heaven .. "Glory" so I gotta becareful how I use that word. LOL! More ramblings from the cript.

My wife has had both of hers done and I never hear her's??? Maybee thats because my hearing isn't that sharp anymore. The first one she had done almost 10 years ago and its beginning to give her a little trouble. They told her when she went into surgery that they may only last around 10 years. I needed new knees 5 years ago but have been putting them off for that reason. I have seen commercials recently that some types are now lasting 30 years so I sure hope I get those. I was schsduled to have them done in august but that date got cancelled on me so rather than book a more recent date and maybe not be recovered well enough to attend the nationals we elected my right one on 11/2 and the left on 11/9. Hope to get recovered enough to deal with this winters snow.
to see if you can get a shot of Steroid in your knees.
I'm also going to get right knee replaced. Dr. Allan wanted to see if I would feel better with the shot. Sure does, it helps, but it may have to be done again in a year or so. So far it's been 6 months and it feels good. After the shot ,you walk right out of the dr.'s office like new.
Lou Ferrigno had both knees done, and he said that it was painful, he choose to have them both done at the same time. If you do have them done do them in stainless steel.
Cortizone, Synvis, Physical Therapy, and AARP and I'm not referencing the senior group. using shock technology they try to make you nerve sensors ignore pain or at least that what I got out of the trial session. Gave me a opportunity to use skype for the first time. I felt like I was on a old Flash Gordon Movie. LOL!
