We were asked what motivates us to stay on track this week.
Well, I went to my knee doc today because my left knee has been locking up with shooting pains this month and I now have to use my cane again.
I had arthroscopic surgery last September in hopes that my knee would be helped good enough to walk better - that was after 7 years of shots. It helped it bend and feel better, but I still can't go up or down the stairs leading with it. I still had cortisone shots, and it felt good for a few months. This month it took a nose dive.
I know this hasn't been motivating so far, but here it is:
My doctor finally agreed to give me knee replacement surgery!! Woo hoo!! I will have the surgery probably the end of May. That means I need to get things done ASAP!
I'm definitely motivated - I'm going to go to water aerobics more times a week to strengthen my knees (increasing from 2 times to 4 times), pack up the rest of my mom's things to move (we've been overseeing renovations too), and get most of the things for our son's wedding on Oct. 4th.
I'M SO EXCITED!!
