I will be having total knee replacement/resurfacing this coming Tuesday, Nov. 8. It will be so nice to get rid of the horrible pain. I have an excellent surgeon and the hospital I am going to has a dedicated wing for the "joint replacement center". So I'll be in super good hands. Have a very good friend who will be taking care of all the animals while I'm in hospital. Of course I am feeling pre-op jitters-nerves, but trying to keep my mind off that.
