I had a THR at the end of June with a few complications.....ALL weight related. I have another surgery to go and now that I know what I'm getting into I'm more motivated than ever to lose weight beforehand. I live on 5 acres in Northern Nevada, with various teenage children, animals and one husband. None by the way are terribly supportive of my weight loss efforts,. The kids bring me those damned Naked Juice things that have like 8 million calories and are supposed to be a meal, NOT a side beverage! My husband consistently wants to go out to eat, try cool new alcoholic beverages, and drink whatever the newest seasonal flavored coffee the shop in town is peddling, with whipped cream of course! He is my worst enemy in the struggle to lose weight! The animals are somewhat kinder....the dogs begrudgingly offer me a corner of their pig ears every so often, the cats bring me gifts of dead rodents and birds and the horses are the best of all, vegetarians who share nothing....Anyway....My goal for this month is to lose a few pounds and be able to care for the 2 day old chicks that will show up here around the 25th of this month......that's pretty much it for now.

    Hi Laura,
    I saw on our team that you are having a TKR done tomorrow. Just wanted to take a moment to wish you well! I hope the surgery goes great and that you are up and about in no time with no pain!
    I am scheduled to have my 2nd knee replacement done next week on the 10th. So I can relate to how you are feeling about now.
    Hang in there, looking forward to hearing how your surgery went. Take care and good luck! emoticon

    Thanks so much for thinking of me with the lovely flowers!! So thoughtful of you!! So have the cats brought you any dead rodents lately or shared any birds?? That's the thing I DON"T like about cats. We have none - dh won't hear of it but we have our 2 dogs....that's enough! Hope you're having a good day - thanks SO much for your thoughtfulness!!
