After two days of waiting he had me transferred to the original hospital where I had the surgery done on Tuesday night and I was operated on Wednesday afternoon. I was back on heavy anti-biotics until this morning. They also had to replace a plastic piece that fills in for my cartilege because the original one was 2mm too thick and was causing the excess pain and loss of mobility.

I just got home 1/2 hour ago and am going to rest as I am very tired, but glad it is all behind me. No more anti-biotics, no more blood thinner shots in my stomach and no more pain killers!

Thanks again and it is so good to be back!
Good to hear from you Laurie, I was worried, but I also knew DH would take good care of you. Glad you're home and feeling better...Take care, talk to you soon..GO REST NOW

HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna

I am sure you are wondering, what next? Isn't this enough? Why all these things happen only God knows why! I have been told that we can't give up; that we won't have to endure forever. But oh, it sure seems to be so hard when it is only you that has to endure at the time.

When I read this thread, I could not help but think if only the world we have to live in would have the love and compassion that this one has. Could you imagine how the hospital would have been filled if all these people who ext end their hope and prayers would have been able to visit you? I am sure the hospital would have had to limit our visiting hours. Wouldn't that have been exciting? However, as it is , you can truly be considered blessed to have so many people thinking of you. This support is surely something you need at this time and should not be limited. Being in such a vulnerable state physically, this is making you strong mentally. I too, hope you will recover and get back feeling the 'best'. Maybe all this struggling will prove worth is to get feeling strong and able again. I, for one, know the affects it has as all the medicine they were giving my mother did not do any good until this minister from church visited her. It lifted her spirit and she recovered.

Hoping you will do as the doc tor said and knowing you will get stronger as the days go by. Thanks for keeping us in the 'loop'!
