"GOD HAS LISTENED! HE PAID ATTENTION TO MY PRAYER"-PSALM 66:19
Pray for healing
Approx. 10 years ago, doctor took xrays of my right knee. It was bone to bone, there was severe arthritis and a Baker's Cyst. I was hoping they could just remove the Baker's Cyst (painful!) but the dr. said it's a pocket of fluid and would just return. The only solution was a Total Knee. I refused to have surgery, even though I had insurance. This bad knee is a result of a fall I took in my 40s (I fell on wooden stairs). I had arthroscopic surgery on the left knee (worst at the time) but nothing was ever done for the right. Over the years the right knee got worse. I am in pain, mostly when standing but sometimes when sitting. I have a high pain tolerance and most of the time I do okay, but the last 2 nights it's been hard to sleep due to the pain. I've been doing W. Watchers and have lost 19 1/2 lbs. Praise the Lord. But I have a lot more to lose. I know I can do it in Jesus' Name. My goal is to go for walks with my husband each day. He is 7 years older than me but has no mobility issues. I can stand briefly, then I have to sit. I sit down when cooking or doing dishes. It's frustrating not to be able to do simple household chores (husband does 99% of them). I use a wheelchair when shopping in large stores. I have severe sleep apnea (hereditary; dad had it). I pray that when I lose enough weight I won't need the bi-pap. The full face mask clamps on my face like a vice and I am claustraphobic! It's a nightmare! Sometimes I have panic attacks. Thx for praying! God Bless.
