    Good luck with your upcoming TKR. I'll be reading to see how it goes. Hope you can get to the computer and keep us updated once in a while.

    Had a horrible day, so much so that getting my knee sawed apart and having foreign objects hammered in is sounding like fun. :gaah:

    I reread everyone's messages on here and I want to say thank you for all your kindness. It helps. :flwrysmile:

    Is it weird that I've watched the procedure many many times on the Internet? I just find it endlessly fascinating. A friend had bypass surgery today, so I checked that out too. Very cool stuff! I'm in awe of the people who figure out how to fix us, and ever so grateful to those who devote their careers to doing so.
    thanks for the good wishes.

    My new thread is called "Woohoo! Now I've got two!!"
    Thanks again to everyone for all your kind thoughts. They were often in my mind when I was in the hospital. :SUNsmile:
