    That is great news. Now for the challenging part: recovering. However, you'll be recovering with the assurance of much better prospects for a pain free and functional life.

    Just off to bed, and checking in to see whats happening, and I really hope that you get to inpatient rehab tomorrow, or it may be today for you, and just to hear you being so cheerful is a real blessing.

    Your knee sounds as though its making great progress already, and the MRSA gone is a double blessing, but you so deserve it, and the best recovery too.

    Take care today and rest up. :friends:

    Hello Everyone!

    Let me let you in on a little secret:secretaea: I am tired. I have had family in here all day, put up with an incompentent nurse last night that would not give me pain meds according to schedule, and one today who stiil has out the MRSA banners like I am wearing a big M on my chest. Other than that, I feel pretty good, just sore!:th_heehee:
