Thank You all for the warm Welcome!! Driving is a great option. I have always enjoyed driving. My problem is that with my damaged left knee that leg is 1 1/2 inches shorter than my right leg so standing and walking is difficult for me. I can walk short distances before I have to sit down and rest my legs. Plus, my back surgeon has me on weight lifting restrictions. His words were, "No lifting anything heavier than a full gallon of milk".
In my first post I forgot to add that before my accident I volunteered at a local Handicapped Riding Therapy Center. My main job was as a horse handler, but I was also a side-walker when needed.
I am so glad to have found this thread!!!!
