Just a note

I made it through the surgery and came out the other side.  I am back to the rig, and it has been a long painful three days, but I’m already seeing improvements.  It’s feels very late since you all know how much sleep you get in the hospital!  Perhaps tomorrow I’ll be up to a few more details.

Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later,  Judy

  22. My brother called me soon after having his knee replacement hollering that I said it wouldn't hurt. No what I said was the pain after the surgery would decrease instead of the pain before the surgery increasing. You will get better. I promise.

  57. I was so excited to see your post - thank God it's over and you are doing well. I know the pain must be hard, but just rest and take care of yourself and focus on your recovery. In a week the improvement will be so much more, and each week after that. Last year at this time I was recuperating from my surgery, and now it's an interesting memory. Before you know it, you'll be saying the same thing.

    Take care, and take advantage of the help your brother can provide. I hope you're enjoying your visit, too, while he's there. Keep us up to date when you can. Good wishes for a speedy recovery! :)
