David’s knees

As you know, David underwent two total knee replacement surgeries at Straub Hospital, the first done in 2015 and the second in 2016.  He also underwent physical therapy after each surgery.

Prior to the two surgeries, David was unable to mow the lawn, because the terrain was uneven and caused pain in his knees.  We donated our lawn mower and hired a landscaping company to do the yard work.  They charged us $100 each time they came.

Lately, David has been feeling so much better.  His knees don’t hurt, and his back pain has diminished.  He decided to buy a brand new lawn mower from Sears.  Yesterday, he tried it out for the first time:

Lawn mower 001-A

Lawn mower 007-A

David is very happy with his progress and is glad he no longer has to pay the landscaping company $100 every time they come.  He enjoys working outdoors.

    You have a huge backyard. $100 seems a bargain, but even better if David can do it himself. Excellent exercise.

    Glad the knee surgery has been so successful and expect the outdoor exercise is good, too. That charge just for cutting the grass surely does seem high, but I know many things in Hawaii can be expensive.
