Well I'll swanee . . .

Pardon my use of the old phrase my paternal grandparents would say out loud when they were surprised by something . . . 

But, you see, when I left my chiropractors office this morning . . .  I was surprised.

For the first time in about 7 years, since my big mountain bike wipeout at Cameron Park in Waco (where I really screwed up my right knee) . . . I am not wearing an orthopedic heel lift in my right shoe.

Dr. Ratliff, my chiropractor,  gave me a knee adjustment today . . . and when he had me stand up . . . I was standing on my bare feet . . . and my hips were level.

Which means . . . no need for my heel lift.   I don't think I have stood this straight in a long time, and my right leg isn't bowed out like it has been the past two years!

Well I'll swanee!

We recheck things on Friday, which will include an x-ray.   Hoping this is all finally coming to a good conclusion.

God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>

Awesome. I have wiped out on the ice more than once this winter, and I have such a creak in my hip. Maybe I should go see my chiropractor, but I have racked up plenty of medical bills in the last few weeks.

Yesterday afternoon, I met a chiropractor who visually identified my need and asked if he could be my doctor. I see him on Monday. It'll be interesting to see what relief I can feel.

Dale, I went to Backwoods in Ft. Worth, an outdoor activity store . . . and purchased a pair of orthodic innersoles . . . I am already feeling the difference.
