Had both knees replaced November 15. As of December 29 (6 weeks and 3 days
past surgery), doc cleared me to hike again as I feel confident to do so.
Still working on that confidence thing. I have been hiking dirt roads in
the woods for 30 minutes or so. For now, the roots and uneveness of trails
is a bit intimidating, even with my Lekis. .
It will be at least a year before I can crawl into a backpacking tent again.
Goal for this week is to raise legs high enough to get into shower and take
a shower standing up. I'm "over" that transfer bench I've been using.
Doing therapy 3 times a week and going to those dirt roads ini the woods to
walk about 5 times a week.
Hope to be doing some "real" hikes, albeit short ones, by mid to late
