Journey of a body on this earth

Break a Leg? Literally!


I started this blog with hardly any followers and for the sole purpose to keep my friends and family updated about my knee replacement and to keep me focused on something during my recovery.  Since then my blog has morphed into a photography blog with more than 9,000 followers!  Here is my very first post.  Just click ‘next’ at the bottom of every post to follow my knee replacement journey!


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a knee replacement?  Well, not the surgery itself 😛 but the whole process afterward?  Well, get ready because I’m about to have one on December 11, and I’m going to blog about the entire experience to keep my mind off the whole thing.  Do you think it’s possible?  I have no idea either, but I’m going to give it my best shot.  Thank goodness for the ipad, iphone and SIRI!  I’ll probably have to speak into my device at first because I doubt I’m going to be able to put my laptop on my lap for awhile.  I even briefly thought it would be cool to post iphone photos, but maybe I’ll spare my followers…if I have any that is.  LOL.

This should be the best thing since Friday the 13th!  Maybe even Saw!   So stay tuned for the gory details.  Actually, I’ll try to write the gore in an eloquent manner so as not to shock you.  Mamma taught me right!!  🙂

To get to the next post, at the bottom of each page just click on “Next Post”.

Let the countdown begin!!!!

  5. I am reading this in 2015, and my knees are really bad. I have a great fear of knee replacement, but I see it in my future. I will be interested to read your blog about it.

    • Awww…believe me, I totally understand the fear. I didn’t blog about that but I’ve lived with these bad knees way longer than I should’ve. I was pretty much crippled because of it and my fear kept me from going ahead with the surgery. As I sit here 3 years out from my first replacement and 1-1/2 years out from the second, I can say that I’m so glad I did it! I have a new lease on life! If you ever want to talk with me on the phone about it, I’d be happy to. You know my email.

  6. Right now, I can still walk on flat land (but I live on a hill). I have had to give up going on Sierra club hikes, which I really liked. This is probably why I love your photography of Pt Reyes and the Marin headlands, because I used to be able to walk there. Question: can you walk on uneven terrain now?

    • Oh do I remember that only too well. I used to belong to a hiking club. I don’t think I can do it now either though because it’s still a bit hard to walk down steep hills although yes, I can walk on uneven surfaces now….I remember when I would analyze the surface…even tiny unevenness would cause me problems!
