Happy Independence Day! I hope you are all having a great day.
I’ve been busy packing for Honduras. I had planned to mow the yard, but the rain last night and today cancelled that plan. It will have to wait until Saturday.
Physically, I’m doing fine. Brenda and I are training for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. We are training on our own, except on Thursdays, when we walk together after work. I had an MRI on my right knee last week and got the results on Monday–grade 2 chondromalacia patella, which means the cartilage under the kneecap is wearing away. So, I will be doing quadracep strengthening exercises and hamstring stretching exercises daily for the next couple of months to try to get the kneecap to stay in the track it’s designed to move in. That will prevent further deterioration of the cartilage. My knee doesn’t hurt with normal walking, just when I go up or down the stairs, so I’ll be avoiding stairs for awhile. I have resorted to the elevator. I haven’t quite gotten used to that, so I frequently find myself heading for the stairs and have to abruptly change directions to go to the elevator. Other than this minor knee problem and the eye floaters I told you about previously, I’m doing quite fine. Thanks be to God!
I am scheduled for a physical exam near the end of July. This was delayed from January because of my surgery. I did meet my doctor in January, but she wanted to wait until I had completed treatment before doing the physical exam, which was also my preference. Hopefully, there won’t be any other problems to deal with for awhile.
That’s it for now. Have a great rest of the week!
