Kneeling After A Total Knee Replacement

Hi my favorite readers! One of my previous blog posts consisted of an exercise involving kneeling on the floor. In the blog post I stated that I could do it. After giving it some more thought, I realized that was an understatement. A heavy duty understatement. Here’s the true story….

The end of this week will be my one year post-tkr date. How hard could it be to kneel on the floor? I found it to be a curious endeavor since in theory it seems like a great way to get more flexibility in my tkr knee. So, anyways…I tried the exercise out for size.

Kneeling on the floor involved my hanging on for dear life to something with each of my hands as I SLOWLY lowered my body to the floor. It was not a pretty sight. Once my knee hit the floor, I would not call it kneeling. It was more like a dreaded bend that was begging to be stopped. So after two seconds, I did.

As I held on to the sofa with one hand, and my exercise bike with the other hand, I started to lift myself back up. Sure is good that neither of those two vices could tip over. My return to an upright position was another vision for sore eyes.

I’m glad that exercise is over. 😕

Chapter Titles

Having thought of my topic areas (chapter titles), I’ll put them as Roman numerals on my outline.   At this point, I’m not worrying about the order of events. I’m just thinking about different main areas that are important to me.

This step is mainly to get me thinking about the overall picture of my book project.   Once I get these main topics out of the way, all the sub-info will hopefully fall into place. I’ll just keep jotting away.
