Scoliosis and a Total Knee Replacement

Hi everyone. Due to numerous requests, I am reprinting this article about living with scoliosis and a total knee replacement. My total knee replacement is due to fracturing my femur 40+ years ago in an auto accident. During recuperation, the femur was misaligned and shortened, resulting in a leg length discrepancy and scoliosis. Hopefully, this […]

Street Walking With My Muumuu

Hi my favorite readers! Another excerpt for you to enjoy…

Me and my muumuu got around. Even though my muumuu provided excellent cover for my body cast, it made moving so easy. Each morning I would pick up my lovely garmet, reach over my head, slide it over my body, grab my crutches and put on […]

Memories Of An Effervescent Muumuu

Hi my favorite readers! I thought it would be fun to share some information about muumuus and my fond recollections of having one be my clothing centerpiece while living in a body cast. It’s an excerpt from my upcoming book… Enjoy!

What is a “muumuu”, you ask? The muumuu originates in Hawaii and is a […]

Using My Toes To Dress Myself

Hi everyone! Here is an excerpt from my upcoming book about living in a body cast for two years. I had a full body cast (spica) that covered my entire left side from chest to ankle. Enjoy!

When I needed to get dressed, I would pick my clothing up with my toes. In addition […]

After Effects of a Broken Neck

Hi my favorite readers! I am a firm believer in mind over matter. There are, however, some situations where this does not apply. Or, if it does, I do not understand how. The physicalities overrule the mental aspect. Here are a few that apply to my fracturing my C-1 35 years ago….

A C-1 is […]

Book excerpt: After Effects of A Fractured C-1

Here is another excerpt from my upcoming book:

One of the injuries I sustained during my car accident was a fractured C-1 (broken neck). The C-1 is the first cervical vertebrae. In many cases, fracturing his vertebrae results in paralysis. Luckily, I did not experience this.

I was initially treated by having to lay flat with sand […]

Living With Diplopia

One of the consequences of my car accident, 33 years ago, is the fact I sustained eye damage from my head hitting the dash and then going through the windshield. This resulted in a damaged nerve and weak muscle in my leg eye.

Due to this, I have lived with diplopia (double vision) for this […]

Proof of Being a Bionic Woman – TKR

One of the things I received while going through the pre-op process was a very special card. I happen to find it amusing, but then again – I’m easily entertained.

It is a card to be used when I need to go through a metal detector – such as at airport checkpoints. […]

No Fancy Tools Needed

After having just finished a chapter in my book, I think it would be a good idea to blog about it. It is tied directly into recuperating from a total knee replacement.

30 years ago…When I was in a body cast, I learned to dress myself with my feet. (You do what you […]

A Unique Wall Hanging

Book excerpt:

After being in my first body cast for six months, my cast was removed. The doctors “sawed” it off. They asked me if I wanted it. “Do you want to keep it and take it home with you?” I was asked.

“Why?!” I incredulously asked. I thought they were […]
