New Car, New Knees

Well, it looks like we may be getting a "new to us" car soon.  There is a big auction on Wednesday with 1600 cars available for sale.  A friend of ours who has a ministry providing cars for missionaries is on the lookout for a much newer Subaru to replace ours.  We are praying that he will be able to find just the right car for us.

The cartoon on the left isn't just about our old vehicle.  I just got the news that I'm looking at knee replacement in the near future.  I guess I'm not surprised but it wasn't really what I wanted to hear. 

I knew I had OA (osteoarthritis) but I was hoping it stood for Over-eaters Anonymous.  I am seriously dieting as they say for every pound you lose you take off 4 pounds of pressure on your joints.

I have an orthopedics consult to see about cortisone shots to my knees which they say last about 3 to 4 months.  We have a lot of trips scheduled for May so I want to postpone the inevitable for a while longer. 

We were able to use Medicare today....so the doctor's visit didn't cost us anything.  So I guess if you have to hear bad news at least I didn't have to pay for it.  Growing old is not for the weak of heart.

See what praying will do for you?  The apostle John was affectionately called "old camel knees".
