Offending? Getting on with life

It seems I must have offended someone from my high school class of many decades ago. I’m not sure what it is, but I never receive a reply to my inquiries.

So, I’ve written an apology. What else it there to do?

Anyway I’m getting on with the important things in my life. This coming Wednesday, June 2nd is the date for my knee replacement surgery. I’m looking forward to the results. I’m especially looking forward to having no leg pain.

Why? Because I have places to go and thins to do.


Getting ready for surgery in nine days


I got the shorts and large T-shirt required for the walking after surgery in the hospital. I have the meds for pain when I return home. All the folks are lined up to help me for the first week.

I was asked to have a coach show up with me for the class this week, and also early in the day before I  go home. Also, someone was asked to wait in the hospital for the results of my surgery.

I have done neither of these. I cannot ask anyone to spend so much time, when I’m certain to be able to do all that is required of me when I’m in the hospital.

The results of my surgery will be given by called in to my son, and  he can take it from there.

I’m eager to get on with the operation, the recuperation, and the other knee as soon as possible.

I have my helpers lined up for post surgery

It’s important after knee replacement surgery to have folks help around the house and to help you get around safely.

I’ve been lining up my helpers.

My cousin will pick me up from the hospital and stay with me for a few days.

My son is taking me to the hospital on the day of surgery.

Another two sons are coming, one overnight, and both will help me around the house, and cook for me.

I’m going to get used to being spoiled.

Getting my knee replaced

Dr. Sah at Dearborn-Sah Center for Joint Replacement has prepared me to get a better knee. On June 2, I’ll have one knee made new again, and six weeks later the other one.

I took in a class today where the organized staff gave me all the information I’ll new for pre-op and post-op. I haven’t been this ready for a new adventure in a few years. I’m looking forward to be free of pain, and ability to walk better. There are places to go and things to do.
