Medical Update

Hello! 
Just wanted to leave a quick update!
I had my knee replacement surgery on Monday. The surgery went well.
My doctor told my DH that my knee was even worse that what it looked like on the x-rays! So when everything healed...my knee would feel so much better. YAY! Because now, it still hurts! Heehee!
Tuesday morning was the pits!! Lots of pain and nausea. And a lot of tears! Boohoo! A total pity party! But by the afternoon , I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The physical therapist even had me up walking (with the aide of a walker). I got to come home from the hospital Thursday. Now...lots of physical therapy ahead of me. One of my dear friends and her husband came by to see me yesterday. He had this surgery 3 years ago. He was very encouraging!
I know it is gonna take some hard work and discipline, which doesn't come easily to me. So please pray for me to stay focused and 
git 'er done!!!!!

Hopefully I will be sitting at my craft room desk soon! I may not be posting, but I will definitely be visiting! Thank goodness for my IPad!

Thanks for stopping by!
Mackie

Thanks, Mackie for the lovely birthday wishes! And I know that you'll do well with your knee. DH had both hips and knees replaced (all about 6 months apart) and is so thankful that he did that! He is sooo much better. Keep looking toward that light at the end of that tunnel. Will keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery! Bev
