TBD on Ning

Have had a bad disturbing day . I made it to see a Surgeon this morning . Doctor came in checked me out , Viewed X Rays i had . Conclusion , He said he can't perform Surgery to fix my knee . Has been too long after i fell that surgery wouldn't help . In other words i may never walk again . Gonna have home health come out to see if they can do something to get me at least into a wheel chair . I am so stressed out . Just doesn't feel worth living anymore ...

Damn you if you think this is a pity party

Love that phrase "Please Dear"

My Mom has had both of her knees replaced and the rehab is critical to get a good result...there are machines you can order through medicare that can be used in bed to get the knee a good range of motion until you can work on your strength with the rest of your body.

Looks like you have some stuff going for you...take advantage of everything that's available to you.

Wayne, take a deep breath and realize this isn't the WORST thing that could happen. If you were a football player or a dancer....yeah maybe. Your brain, your hands, and the rest of you are doing fine for now. You still will be able to do most things you already do now. There's GOTTA be something good about that, right?!

Hey, I've worked with a lot of disabled people in my profession and I had a few clients  who used a thin piece of smooth wood (like a surfboard) to transfer from bed to wheelchair and they did it by themselves.  I know the one guy had knee issues too.

Good luck, Wayne. hang in there and DONT give up!!

Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen,
don't worry.  Don't stew.
Just go right along.
You'll start happening too

Maybe you are listening to the wrong doctor........try some Dr. Seuss

AW!  Dr. Seuss always has the right advice!
