Anticipation

Tomorrow is the day.  The day they hopefully get this darned knee fixed or at least cleaned out to help my mobility.  I can't wait to get back to the stationary bike and treadmill.  My workout schedule has been so off because I hurt nearly all the time.  I'm so nervous about tomorrow.  It's not so much about the surgery thing it's about the possibility of infection afterwards.  Since I've had a bout of MRSA and Daddy's horrible experience with the MRSA with his hip replacement that TERRIFIES me!  All that aside, I am READY!  Today I wait till sometime after 2:30 when they will call with the surgery time.  Sleep will be a bit hard I would imagine tonight.  My mind will be working overtime.  


Also tonight is the artist reception for the Alpha Rho Tau reception at TCC.  If you are in the Tulsa area and having nothing to do, come on by and see some great art.  All for sale and maybe I'll get a ribbon!  They were judged yesterday and I have no idea at this point.  I didn't think I would go but can't stay away.  If you show up I will be the one hobbling around or sitting in a corner rubbing my knee!

You are you and not your dad. So go in and be possitive.Do not dwell on the pass of others. I will pray for you and I know others will pray for you.

When my husband had his knee replaced a few years ago, I insisted that the hospital test his skin for bacteria. Easy and quick, and for him, negative. Occasionally they find the MRSA germs and then they postpone the surgery until they can clear it up. If you are worried, make sure they do this for you. Otherwise you will spend the next month worrying. There was really no reason not to do this for my husband, but maybe they have a new procedure instead.

With my serious injured ankle, I haven't been able to exercise. It's awful! I don't love exercise (hate it actually) but since the doctor told me to stop all the dog walking and biking, I've missed it like crazy. Good luck with your knee! If it's like my MIL's knee, she feels a million times better now that it's healed.
