Day 79

Ran for twenty minutes outside. For about thirty seconds I actually just enjoyed running and exploring the neighborhood. Then my knee started hurting. Oh well got it done. Approx. 1.6 miles.

Dear Son, I sure hope that I haven't given you my arthritus. I just had an orthopedic evaluation in Portland and they said that mine was at a 6 (out of 10). What does that mean...well it means to take good care of them and not to abuse them they might last a long time. Listen to what they are telling you. He reccommended sliding and gliding exercises instead of running for me. I will do my walkinf on flat ground to eliminate some of the twists and turns that mountain climbing might give them. With a lot of care they might last a while longer. The next step will be the steroid shots. After that it will be the "oiling" of the joint with a substance made from the comb of a rooster. After that it will be knee replacement. Why am I telling you all of this? Well you may be on the same road that I have travel. Be aware and proceed with a little caution and care. They need to last you for a long time. Luv ya. Popsie.
