I've been abit unhappy since yesterday. No, actually, not a bit, a freaking lot. The specialist thinks I need a knee replacement. Not a reconstruction, a bloody replacement with metal and stuff. Maybe I should change my blogname to Robohag or something if I have to. But, the other thing is I am in the medically *too young* basket for a knee replacement and will have to have it done again a few times as I get older, which is not recommended as a general rule.
So, my choices will be hobble around with a cane forever or be out of action for about12 mths and every 15 years [ if I'm lucky] or so have it done again. I have too much lateral movement in my left knee for it to be something easily fixed and apparently my ACL is too far gone he thinks. I have to have another MRI and Xray because PA is also a factor in any surgery.
Wait,every cloud has a silver lining right? I will no longer have to aimlessly wander carparks looking for that elusive spot. I will no longer be the nice young [?] thing who can stand on buses, trains and trams! People will no longer ponder if I am drunk because I fell on my face when walking 5 steps [ Yes, this does happen frequently LOL]. If people get in my way I can smack their ankles with my cane to make them stop. I can use my cane to get people's attention... err, wait, that sounds like I've been watching too much House LOL

I have refused to get a boring old thing, so I'm on the lookout for really cool canes [ walking sticks] I'll also have to have a few different one's so I can accessorise correctly. I mean, really. If I'm going to have to have one, I am gonna be the trendiest. So, my shoe fascination will have to be replaced by a cane fascination ROFLMAO The girls are already divvying up my stilletto's, the little toads.

Speaking of which, I really don't think the eldest is going to make it much further, she's nesting*G*

Well, I am off to start another painting
MWAH kiddies!

Feelin' - a bit peeved.

Sorry to hear about the knee. Did you want to borrow my walking stick? Sorry, an attempt at humour.

My Feeddemon picks you up now so I'll keep an eye open so to speak and have a bit to catch up on.

Thanks :-)
I think I quite like my anklebashers, noone expects someone my age to have a legal weapon of destruction.

Thanks Dogbait, I think you might need it to fend off the irate critters and the vicious dogs though LOL

I switched to feedburner, so it's good to know it works now. Not sure what the prob was though.
