Oh I just had to let you all know.. After months of waiting today I was taken to the hospital to pick up my new leg brace.

Apparently it's a prototype to see if it helps, and if it does they will custom make me one that will bend at the knee when I want to. I have to try it out for 3-4 weeks.

With my knee out of action, since January this year it's been a nightmare coping. I am just so happy to be given the brace as I hope it does help. It's rigid, so will stop my leg giving way when walking with crutches.

If your not aware I have osteoarthritis in this knee and since having an MRI recently they tell me I have just a tiny bit of cartilege left and the bones are grinding on both sides of the knee. It's basicall had it!! They tell me I need a new knee.. But until the doctors decide what they are going to do with me with all my other complications, I am pleased to try the prototype leg brace.

Oh yes and the antibiotics have finally kicked in and my breathing is much better :)

Sorry not sure why the darn photo is sidewards?
