I'm Back!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to say that I am home from my knee surgery and it was a complete success. When the doctor got in there he said there was even more arthritis damage than he could have imagined so it was the right decision.

I just wanted to post this as a thread because I am overwhelmed by how many of you sent well wishes directly or through others. I am deeply moved by this and could not have gotten through these last few months of pain and frustration without your thoughts, prayers, friendship and encouragement.

I will be on a walker for a month and a cane for two more after that and then I should be good to go for 10 to 20 years without aid! Rehab is hard work but I know I can do it. I can already bend and straighten my leg more than I have been able to in more years than I can count!

It is really good to be back home and at DC. After all, you are as much family as my DH, border and two furbabies!


Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
