    That is wonderful you had all your family there for Christmas!
Sorry you are waiting so long for the knee replacement :( The recovery from it is the worst, but diligent exercise and following the physiotherapy advice will eventually mean you will move and feel a lot better.
Will be thinking of you, keep in touch!

    I am so glad that I got my knee replaced in 2009 and only had to wait a week and with this health care that they are trying to put in the US is going to be like other countries that have long waiting lists. When my husband and I were stationed in England there was a teenage girl that had to wait six months for her tonsils to be taken out and that surprised us since it takes only about a week to get that type of stuff done. Now with the so-called heath care it is going to be harder for the older people to get stuff done like that. Not sure how old you are but my knee was done when I was 51 when it was done. Much better now that the pain is gone.

    Glad you had a nice family Christmas. The coffee machine
sounds like a good bargain. Sorry to hear about the public
hospital waiting lists. It will only get worse. Told my doctor
I am still having problems with my right knee after my fall
15 months ago. He told me the osteo arthritis is there and
nothing much he can do at the moment and told me to lose
weight. I will need knee surgery down the road but told me
I am too young at the moment. At least you are on the list.
You just have to be patient. Exercise is good.
