Surprise! Can’t Walk!
Something happened to my right knee last night. I was walking and then I couldn’t.
At the moment, exactly what happened is a mystery. Last night I walked into a board meeting, and couldn’t walk out.
After the meeting, I was wheeled out to my car, drove home (yes, the bad knee is my driving leg), hobbled through the garage, and scooted up the steps on my behind into a wheelchair. With Eric having his own waking challenges, this makes us a pretty handicapped household!
I’m headed to some sort of doctor this morning, I’m sure, to see what’s up.
In the meantime, I’m learning how to navigate in a wheelchair. I’m glad we had an extra one! I have a new appreciation for anyone on two wheels, I can tell you that. I have taken for granted so many basics, like standing. And going across the room to get a drink of water.
I’m also thinking about how to re-design wheelchairs. Seriously, how is one supposed to carry things that spill? No cup holder? ? And what about a handy pocket for a cell phone? How about a smaller and lighter chair to get around those pesky corners?
It’s time to call the doctor. All for now.
Good luck at the doctor’s office today. I hope the condition is not as serious as it is mysterious. Heal with ease. Roberta
I’m sending. So much healing light to you, Terri. I am praying for your swift recovery! Keep us posted.

I have no idea how you are feeling right now. but letting you know you a being supported in love.
Good luck, Teri! We all need to absorb the truth that “people with disabilities” is one disadvantaged group that is open to anyone, at any time; and most of us will join if we live a very long life!
Feel better soon, Terri! I’m sending you healing vibes!!!
Sending love to you and your knee(d)s.
Oh my goodness Terri. Sending lots of healing light and love to you both.
thank you, Kimberly. Looking forward to seeing you soon!!! love, Terri
Sounds.a lot like a stroke I had which started with my right leg suddenly going “out from under me” and evolving into full stroke over a two day period. What did your doctor say?
Thanks for your concern. It’s not a stroke. It’s a torn meniscus which folded back on itself and got stuck between the bones, causing pain. It’s fine now, thanks to Giuseppe Piazza, a magical and knowledgeable person regarding bodies. My bone doc was impressed.
