Enough of this!

I have fallen twice this week, and my whole left side feels like I've been hit by a truck. These darn knees! First my right knee went out, and down I fell, into the doorway molding. Two days later my left knee went out (and that's the better leg). I fell and hit the kitchen table on my way down this time, and got more scrapes and bruises.
I don't want to get a knee replacement, although I know you can get a partial replacement, and it's less invasive. I'd rather stand on my own two feet (and knees) as long as I can.
We go the mountains for Spring vacation. We've always gone in the fall, but this time we're going to do spring and fall! (I think it's the 2nd weekend in June.) I have a mountain carved cane, and a mountain carved walking stick. Maybe they'll keep me straight. Both have notches carved on them to make them pretty, and also a better hand grip. Made on Beech Mountain, NC, highest town in North Carolina.
Well, I'm starting to type strange words, so it must be time to go to bed. I'll drag myself to bed, G'night friends! And God Bless! Kathy
