The Bee's Knees or Update on Hubby's Condition

Friends have been asking how Hubby’s knees are doing. His knees are exactly the same today as they were on Sunday.

We knew going in that the first shots would show little to no results. After the second set of shots we might see some improvement – or maybe not.

It could take up to 12 weeks before we know if Hubby will be more agile and in less pain but we are only looking at a 50% "shot" at improvement.

However Hubby is the eternal optimist. He believes the shots will help. He really wants them to work so he can avoid total knee replacement on both knees. Maybe that will raise his percentage a bit.

Above is a picture of Hubby's much stronger legs taken about eight years ago -- and as you can see even then the knees were not bending very well. In this picture our boy Fritzy is only two years old -- he's ten now and a senior citizen. All of us are slowing down, it seems. And yes, Hubby is carrying a purse -- he's never had gender identification issues.
