My free pattern Traffic Cones, was pattern of the day today on The Daily Knitter! I am very grateful to The Daily Knitter for this honor. Also, a big thanks to my friend Nancy for the heads up on Facebook.
I will try to make this post very brief, as my entire right arm, from my shoulder down to my fingertips, is extremely painful. I have been avoiding much online time today as well as any craft activity, in hopes that this pain will subside.
My primary reason for posting today is to ask for your opinion. I am thinking of starting an additional blog of my hopeful journey back to the land of the "upright and mobile". I am hoping to have weight-loss surgery so that I can lose enough weight to qualify for hip replacement surgery. I need both hips replaced in order to kick my dependence on a walker and cane.
What do you think? Should I post about this journey? I have no guarantee that it will go well or that I will even qualify for all the procedures I need and the funding that it requires. Is this too personal a journey to log in this way or could it be inspirational for someone else, as so many other such blogged journeys have been for me?
What has prompted this idea at this time is that I have finally been given a date at which I will start to be covered by Medicare, which is May 1, 2009. So, if I am going to blog the entire journey, the blog will have to start soon. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think. Thank you.
