Another Step On Life's Journey
Saturday, June 30, 2018
Right knee replacement was on Wednesday (6-27-28) @ 2:45 PST. Try as I might to get down to the pre-surgery goal weight of 189#, I misses it by 9 # in the wrong direction. A series of complications caused this, not the least of which was that fact that I couldn't exercise to the level to which I desired because of the pain and another new complication in my life. I was diagnosed with lupus 3 weeks ago. While it certainly explains a lot, it has also caused its own source of dietary and weight gain issues. While I work through the process of rehabilitating my right knee, I now get to figure out how to deal with the new set of diet restrictions that accompany the lupus. Lots of fun stuff to learn and tons of things to work through. It's all good. I'm a survivor. I just need to learn the new operating rules to figure this all out.
