Think we all need some cheering up. It's tough and slow progress post TKR. But that are humorous moments.

for example yesterday I walked along our High Street with crutches. Had an annoying itch on my nose. I gave it a quick scratch forgetting I had crutch attached and manage to get a man walking next to me full square in the stomach with the crutch. He was fine but he said someone had done the exact same thing to him yesterday. "Knee replacement?" he sighed. 

"Yes" I replied.

    I am now at the stage of trying to be 'independent' as my partner calls it. I decided that rather than disturb her I would make myself a tassimo coffee. I went to pull out the box containing the pods with both arms in my crutches but the box came out too far and toppled onto the floor spreading the pods in all directions. The racket brought my partner running to see if I was ok! I am now forbidden from trying to be independent unless theactivity has been vetted for safety and nuisance factor by my other half!!

    my funny story 

    was getting in the bath while on my own and then not being able to haul myself out 

    i had to ring my daughter...luckily she has a key.

    we howled with laughter as it wasn't a pretty sight

    and then she told me off.... I felt like the child and her my Mother

    Hi Soobeedoo,

    The first week home I sat on the edge of the bed to put my PJ bottoms on. The bed is on castors and rolled back, I slipped onto the floor. I had 3 Great Danes fighting on top of me as to who was going to help me! I couldn't move, my pjs were wrapped around my legs.

    And of course, being asked, seriously, in the doctors waiting room if I had been attacked by a shark.

    Caz x

    Another funny happening today . Got stuck on the swimming pool steps, they're the ladder type. A nice young man decided to help by giving me a push up. Unfortunately my hands slipped on the railings and we both landed back in the water . Ooooops . Then I got the giggles and it took a few attempts to get out. I am avoiding the hoist at all costs
