I've made the decision to have knee replacement surgery next fall. That gives me the spring and summer to raise feeder pigs, Cornish Cross Dirty Birdies, garden and can, freeze, sell the proceeds. I'll be able to wind everything down to a level that DH can handle while I recuperate. I'm ready to get this done, do my physical therapy and get on with living withOUT the pain.
i didn't know you have severe knee pain. i hope you can get some rest and let it ease up a bit this winter.

so glad to hear BJ is doing well! :)

I am glad to see/hear you will be getting that knee fixed. I am sure you will be very glad you did.

I’ve been dealing with it for a long time. Sometimes I lurch around like a drunk. LOL I just suck it up and do what I do.

heh, yeah. :) to me the main thing is if it interferes with my sleep.

i have a long term left knee problem but it only hurts when i stop getting enough exercise. no pain the rest of the time. all the other stuff can keep me amused too, but normally i can work around it all and get things done.

BJ has been going nuts. Today I had a task that he could help with. There was a rotten post at the Sheep barn that 2 gates latched on to close them. So he removed the staples that fastened the cow panel to it. Without the cow panel to hold it up, the post fell over. I got post hole diggers and dug a hole, dropped the new post in. We put dirt in the hole and a little water. BJ tamped it in.

We attached the chains for each gate, closed the gates and latched the gates.

Then he helped me with the creep feeder I was building.

I cut a hole in the front wide enough for the lambs. I caught both of them and pushed them through the hole. They tried to find a way out found the Feed and chowed down.

The ewes smelled the Feed and tried to get in too. Silly girls!
