I was not around very much here lately. No telling of hikes into nature and excursions to ancient places. The reason for it is that I am not as mobile as I would like to be. For some time now I have arthritis in my left ankle. There is no cushioning cartilage anymore in my joint, and walking with bone grinding on bone has gotten so painful that it became necessary to be taken care of.
So tomorrow morning, the first day of the new year, I will check into hospital for surgery of total ankle replacement (ankle arthroplasty). An artificial joint will be inserted between my tibia and my talus bone and then - voila - I will have the ability to walk pain free restored! Well, after four or five months or so... :-)
I hope everything turns out good and successful! So my dear blogger friends, please wish me luck! :-)
A good new year to all of you! Foremost health, everything else will fall in place!
