Well I almost made it again My surgery is cancelled for the second time this month Florida keeps running out of staffed beds I am rescheduled for Monday July 27 at a bigger hospital that has more beds It is farther away for me but I'm willing to travel to get this done Our governor is trying to get more nurses I don't know where he will get them from At this rate I won't be a "July Sparkler"

@capecoral,
Your surgery date has been updated in your signature and the July Sparklers surgery group.
Sorry to hear about the delay, all the best on the 27th.

@capecoral Fingers crossed for you that it all goes ahead on Monday. Sounds like you are first up - that's great. No waiting around. You will be done and be sitting up having lunch shortly after.

@capecoral Glad you finally got a date!!! It will be over and done with before you know it. I am 3 weeks out, and it still seems like yesterday when I had my surgery. After surgery TAKE YOUR TIME!!! This is my 2nd knee. This time I did not try to rush, I took every nap I ever wanted to take for at least the first week. Even 3 weeks out, I will set up my Ice machine turn on the TV and doze off for a while. I am letting my body do it's work.
Good luck!
