I too have arthritis (although my general and my ortho doctors are fighting over that diagnosis, while I just deal with the pain as best I can.) It's primarily in my left knee, and I so relate to your concerns about getting down to the floor to pick something up. For me, I'm finding it very difficult to get to the books and supplies in my classroom, where the cupboards go down to the floor. I have to kneel or sit in front of the bottome shelves to look at what's there, and there are days when I just can't make my knee bend enough to do that. Fortunately, I have 30+ munchkins who can be tasked with retrieving something from those shelves. The problem only starts when I can't be specific about what I want them to get. And since I've been teaching the same grade in the same classroom for 20+ years, there's a lot of stuff in there I don't exactly remember!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading about your journey into, through, and beyond hip replacement, and keeping you in my prayers so that everything will go not only right, but awesomely right.
