My thankful list today includes having one pretty good hand and one pretty good knee. (are we grasping at straws here? Yes.....I talk to myself and answer, too.)
I was measured for a brace for the right knee and will get it by next Thursday. That will hopefully make me more steady and reduce any chance of falling and injuring myself, hopefully reduce some of the discomfort, too. (trying to avoid that four-letter word, pain).
I have been using a cane but that is difficult because of the carpal tunnel and trigger thumb symptoms on the hand that has not been operated on yet.
It was nice to use the handicapped parking sticker when I went grocery shopping yesterday. We are way stocked up. There is a company who will deliver (a little pricier) and I will use them when I am not able to drive when I have the second knee surgery. But I used a regular shopping cart to get the few items I needed cause, if you haven't noticed, little old ladies use them like walkers to helphold them up (also got a little exercise that way, too).
Today will be a good day to read The Spark and stay home as the weather has been predicted to be dangerous for driving and walking outdoors because of freezing rain, predicted for 2-3 days.
Will be a good day to work on the to-do list!!!!!!
