Surgery Completed

Well, it's done. My left knee has been replaced and the surgeon was very pleased. So far, no pain but the nerve block hasn't worn off yet. We'll just have to see how I'm doing to morrow.

Gina Anderson from the church and Diana Patton from Toastmasters came to the hospital to sit with Terry and support her. I am a very luck person to have so many wonderful friends in my life.

One Day and Counting!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Around 24 hours from now, i'll be prepped for my knee replacement surgery. I know all will be well and the surgeon's hands will be guided by divine intervention.

I am so looking forward to the relief from the pain. I am also happy that I started this process a couple of months ago. If I hadn't, and the the degradation of my left knee, I would have hated to have waited another couple of months.

It's just human nature to be a bit apprehensive about the surgery especially with my A-fib, but I am in good hands.

4 Days and Counting

Well, in a around 4 days, I'll be in my room at Arlington Orthopedic & Spine recovering after my knee replacement. It's been a very tough two weeks. I have had tremendous pain that has been getting worse by the day. I am really looking forward to being pain free, at least in my left knee, the worst of the two.

During my rehab period, I have a lot to do to keep me busy, that's a good thing. My sister, Dian, is going to come over and sit with me so Terry can go to work. I will really have to concentrate on doing my exercises correctly plus being productive during the two weeks I am at home. I hope to return to work on June 19th. We'll just have to see how it goes.
