Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

Sitting here wishing this knee of mine would close. Making progress, but man oh man it is moving at a glacial pace. Drove me to write some haikus in the midst of the frustration... so I thought I'd share them with you all... hope you can relate, hope it helps. Somehow typing this stuff helps me...

[INDENT]Artificial knees
Sound more like two castinets
Crack, pop, step by step.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Surgeons know best, eh?
Did the fine print speak of this?
I must have missed it.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Humor heals the soul.
But what heals this blasted knee?
Answer this would you?[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Must change the dressing.
Must keep it clean and covered.
Eschew infection.[/INDENT]

I am so sick of these things.
Close quick knee, close quick![/INDENT]

[INDENT]Swimming pool beckons.
Yet I cannot get in it.
It mocks me daily.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Dogs don't know, don't care.
Unconditional love, yes.
Barking for a bone.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]God has a purpose.
I cannot see it at all.
Yet there must be one.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Big, swollen ankles.
Will they still fit in my shoes?
Prednisone may help.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Sad thing, nerd humor.
Funny, true, odd, a keyboard...
Online chat friends know.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Good friend recliner.
Relax and watch some TV.
My evenings at home.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Laptop, Internet.
These things keep me sane each day.
Others understand.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Weekdays are easy.
So much to do day by day.
Weekends not so much.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]A dog just farted.
Tears in the eyes everywhere.
Outside dogs, right now![/INDENT]

[INDENT]Night falls, I grow tired.
Time for drugs, bed, and some sleep.
Morning comes too soon.[/INDENT]
