I have everything I need prepared and ready for 25 chicks arriving around Jan 7-8. Except for one thing that isn't prepared that I have no control over - ME. I have just been scheduled for a full knee replacement on Jan. 19. Unfortunately there is no other date as an option. It is either do it then or suffer the possibility of not having it done and possibly not be able to walk again. I have my brother and a friend that can come by once a day. That worries me because I am retired and available all the time were it not for the surgery. Any thoughts or suggestions of things I might do during this time other than pray we don't have a power outage? Thanks.
