6,723 steps yesterday. Fell asleep in the recliner and missed about an hour’s worth of steps.

Hope your knee feels better soon Wally.

6264 steps yesterday.  Shopping added a lot of steps I would otherwise not have made.  Holding on to a shopping cart did help a lot.  I haven't used a cane yet but it may be worth trying.
I see the doctor tomorrow about the injections.  I don't know if it will take the full 5, each a week apart, that I had before or not but I will find out tomorrow.

8,357 steps yesterday.

Boo is a bit better today but still very weak.

The law of it is always something hit last night... my pipes froze up... I have called the pump guy twice today with no response. Fortunately I have a lot of water in jugs, but will probably have to get more if I don’t hear from the pump guy. ☹️

4167 steps yesterday.  I'm not really trying for total steps but I am trying to get at least 300 steps each hour.  That seems to be working.  I am off to the doctors in about an hour and will see what he thinks about re-doing the injections.  Favoring the knee causes problems elsewhere like my hip and back so I hope I can get it done.

3585 steps yesterday.  I did get the injection in my knee yesterday.  This is a new type and only requires one session instead of 5 like the last time.  I was told to be sure to ice it every day for a week and that is not going to be a problem.  It is sore today and it will probably be a couple of weeks before it takes effect.  You get everything in one injection that you got in 5 injections before so the poor knee is swollen and a bit sore.  I don't think I will be posting any step counts for a few days.  I do need to dig up my weights and try to do some strength training.  I have been putting that off for too long.

Well, I ended up with 3445 steps yesterday and that was taking it easy and trying not to do too much.  My knee was sore all day but today it is much better.  I am going to keep being easy on it for a couple of days but I don't think it will take too long to get back to normal.

That’s good news Wally. See you back at normals soon.

4808 steps yesterday.  My knee really felt better and sooner than I thought but I still am going to take it easy for a couple of more days.  I was told to expect a week to two weeks before the full effect of the injection would be felt.  I know with the last time when I had the 5 injection routine it was about 2 weeks after the last injection before I felt the difference.
