All I Want for Christmas

(Sing to "All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth")

All all I want for Christmas
is just two good knees
Two good knees
oh just two good knees!
All I want for Christmas
Is just two good knees
so I can have
A Merry Christmas!

So, I just recently found out that I need BOTH of my knees replaced. Yep! No cartilage in my left knee, and almost none in my right. This explains the grinding pain I've had for a while and why I've needed the help of crutches and a wheelchair to get around. Crutches are super annoying. However, I find them useful for gathering Muffin's toys in the living room from my chair. They reach quite a distance. The wheelchair is something that Muffin thinks is really fun to ride. I am thankful for things like crutches and wheelchairs to help me, but I miss being able to walk and doing things on my own. My surgery is far in the future since I don't have insurance, and last time I checked... We were poor. Aahhhhhhh. So life my life. Since I'm pretty sure Santa doesn't give knee replacements, I guess I'll just HOBBLE along all the while counting my blessings!
