    I went to shells35 thread and posted on there. Not sure of the best way to get this “best wishes wagon” rolling.

    @beachy I thought if you put the @ infront of their name they were notified they had a message and were to find it, maybe I am wrong, and if so all the October Fiesties we have wished well have no idea because they then go to recovery:shrug::shrug:

    I know. Not every Fiesty uses the forum though. We’ll keep sending good thoughts though!

    Thank you for the best wishes! I had a good surgery (TKR of my right knee). I was surprised at how much pain I had,even in the recovery room. I stayed only one night in the hospital. I have a lot of swelling in the leg, need some advice on how often and how far I should be trying to walk, using a walker. The swelling is impeding me, I think. I saw a photo of swelling on another post , with three different levels of swelling; mine is definitely similar to the first leg. So swollen that my leg feels hard to the touch.

    @gecko
    Thanks for the chuckle! I hope I can sleep! I love to sleep!

    It’s just that it’s getting so real. Had my last pre hab appt today. Taking dog for nail trim and vaccination, getting all my post op stuff ready, getting my hair cut, stuff like that. And last nite I started the shower with Hibiclens thing. That really hit home.

    So, yeah I’m ready and thankful for my Bonesmart Buddies!
    Im still jittery,though:loll:

    Thank you @gecko!
    Yours will be here before you know it. The time does go fast if you stay busy.

    Today’s agenda:
    Stock up on dog food. The princess likes a certain tiny dog kind. Picky Princess.

    Wash all bed coverings and put fresh sheets.

    Enjoy dinner with hubs and wonderful son.

    Pray. A lot.
    Try to sleep. 5am wake up call.

    Talk to you soon!
