New update. So I have been trying to get approved for a total knee replacement surgery since July of this year. I have finally been approved. I just received the phone call from hospital telling me when to be there tomorrow. I have been given my instructions for tonight and in the morning. I met with surgeon last week.
I have been so scared to do anything because if I cut, scratch or bruise my knee I could have the surgery called off.
Both of my knees are bone on bone. However my left knee is the worst. In Illinois my ortho doctor didn't want to do anything because I was having no problems just pain. But when I moved to Louisiana I messed it up and it started locking up on me. So new ortho doctor and new treatment.
So tomorrow at 12:30 pm central time I will be having surgery. Keep me in your prayers PLEASE. I will keep you posted.

    How are you doing this week? The last few days, for me, haven't been that great, but I started over AGAIN today, and so far I'm having a good day. I've been painting again, so that keeps me out of the kitchen. emoticon

    Hope you have a fabulous day! Only 26 days, 4 hours, and 10 minutes til spring. emoticon

    Stopping by to say hello, and share a hug. I am in a very similar situation . . . my heart really goes out to you.

    I hope you can find a way to escape the situation for a few moments, at least . . .
