    Just dropping by to wish you well. You are well prepared, you'll do great. Just remember "great" is a relative term here, but by now you know that.

    Speaking of terms, I traveled with some ladies from Australia back in the mid 80s and learned that a cozzie was a bathing suit. Am I correct that it is short for "costume"? BTW, they packed their own vegemite.

    Rest well this weekend.

    At least try to sleep well on Sunday night. It might be your last good sleep for a while.

    Well this time tomorrow I will be arriving at the hospital and the next part of this journey begins. I sure hope it's going to be a good one! I would much rather be packing for a holiday! :)

    1 more sleep! :yay: It is a beautiful day here in Sydney it's suppose to be Autumn and it's going to be 29 degrees (85) today so I'm going to get out and enjoy some of that gorgeous sunshine. :flwrysmile: :flwrysmile:

    Funny to think of the time difference,it's 8:45 on Saturday night here, we're up at the lake. Chilly night (Spring has been chilly this year) we have a nice fire in the fireplace, having some wine and watching TV. (I have my iPad on my lap :) 4 weeks post op and life feels kind of normal, so there you go, a short few weeks from now you will be back to your regular routine! So take a deep breath, relax, and go get that shiny new knee, you deserve it!
