oh yes I paulie, I started all the injections about 6 years ago they worked to a point  then stopped working I went meloxican and differnt PT place that helped to then I found this place but it wa s initially for my back!!! LoL  Once I finished back we moved to knee took mri and saw that my arthritis was beyone the point where they can try stem cell . Maybe try that Paulie. or ask about it. A lotof insurances  didint cover it cause it's new. My place does it and has had good resuts.  I ccouldnt, my arthritis was beyond the point thaat  it probably wouldnt help and the fact my insurance wouldnt cover it I couldnt unless I wanted to pay out of pocket with a high probably chance of it not working. I dont have the money for that. And as you know I dealt with fnding a surgeon who would do the surgery. The firstg 2 wouldnt  because of my weight.  I know my right knee needs it but will wait until left is completely heald or as heald as possible. 

Puff you are right. You got to get past the difficult 2 weeks but after that progress quickly occurs. everyday there is something new.  Thanks for the advice and warningabout the pain but I kind of hoping it wouldnt be so  bad. I thought I had a high tolernce of pain but not enough for right after surgery. LOL Dr Brooks does think I have a high tolerance to pain he was amazed how I handle the stetches he did to my knee.   He moved it as inward as possible and didn't budge.   LOL  I actually nominated hi for an award they are doing

Hi Everyone

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year.

LB.  I'm so glad your knee is progressing well. I knw both my knees are going to need replacemet....one at a time....maybe after the holidays?????  My left will definitely be first.

HI Paulie....I know you're crazy busy today and tonight.  Have a wonderful day tomorrow with your family.

Hi LB and jicaji!  ;D

LB, I remember you using the knee injections for a while until they stopped helping you. I'm really glad you're happy with your decision for replacement. You've been through a lot in recovery to get to where you are now.

I've heard of stem cell. One of my daughter's did that or something very similar a few years ago and it helped her.

You most definitely deserve to be nominated for an award for the progress you've made with PT and recovery. I hope you receive the award!! Kudos to you either way.

jicaji, You are 100% correct about being crazy busy today and tonight. I'm posting this at 11:48pm after a long day. I even (I'm laughing typing this) watched my oldest granddaughter's dog for her this afternoon and tonight while I did set up and prepping food while she attended a friend's Christmas get together. Her family wasn't able to so I was happy to help her.

I wish you a wonderful day tomorrow with your family too.

In case I don't get to come tomorrow  I wish you both, LB and Jicaji, and all of RRP members a wonderful holiday. God bless.
Take care.

Merry Christmas Cheers members!  To Paulie, jicaji, LB, and to Phyl, Lani, all of you!  I hope you're enjoying the day with friends and family.  Missed coming in last night so thought I'd stop by this morning.  Enjoy this song from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, "For Unto Us a Child Is Born". :)  Good to "see" you all!

Hi Glogdog!
Many thanks for your post. And, esp. the link to Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I really enjoyed their singing and "For Unto Us a Child Is Born"

Hi!  :)
I hope everyone had a blessed and pleasant Christmas.

Lani, Phyl, Glo and Karen, Thank you for the Cheers holiday greeting.

LB, Oh! Okay you nominated your PT guy for the reward. Lol That's really nice of you.
How's working going?

Quote #1 from yesterday .... "The End"!! A very good one.  :)

Glo, It's always good to see you here and always with your favorite Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Every Christmas Eve I remember the story you told years ago about your mother walking through snow on Christmas Eve and who she saw through the falling snow. She was walking either to or from mass. A very touching story.


Well for me it has been a whirlwind of pleasant holiday activities since Christmas day and long nights with family and friends. A lull today but will be a busy afternoon with one of my granddaughters.

Tomorrow is my youngest granddaughter's birthday. She'll be 9. Where do the time go?!! Her family party get together is at my house tomorrow.

Then Friday shop for New Year's Day family meal .. pork roasts, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and Bush's beans.
A pleasant arrival also on New Year's Day will be my son and dil from North Carolina coming to visit next week.

Yep! Lots going on despite the very gray days with dense fog and rain.
Sometimes we have to do our best to make the sun shine.
Take care.

good afternoon sounds like a wonderful weekend for you Paulie and agan for the rest of the week and next week.  Work is slow real slow I a watching movies most of day check through out day to see if anything comes up.   Usually no, Thank god I am home,  Maybe I should keep pushing to work from home if it continues to be slow but not sure how I can d that . I have my dentist appointment tomorrow took out the amoxicillan so I remeber to take it 1 hour before my appointment  Now I am nervous if something happens
