    Thank you for your encouragement on my "Siblings, last one standing and memories" blog. We can learn so much from our family dynamics. Thank you for your kind words. I hope you will have a terrific Thursday.

    Hi Ginna...........

    I just have to tell you again that if I am having a bad day, I go to your page, and look at the 6-month picture of Wyatte and I smile and wish I could reach in and touch that sweet face. He is a sweetheart.

    Hi Ginna..........
    I am guessing that the length of recovery time will be determined by how well the surgery goes and how strong I can be going into the surgery. We will discuss that when I meet with the surgeon and the NP for the pre-op.
    Thanks for caring.

    Hi Ginna...........
    I started having problems with my right knee in 2006. It felt like someone had stuck a knife in it; a hot, burning sensation. The x-rays showed a torn meniscus and lots of osteoarthritis. I had surgery for the meniscus and it made it worse. In my situation, it was bone on bone with no hope of PT or shots, (I tried both) doing any good. I retired early (2006) because of my knee and ended up having to wait for 2 years for the surgery I needed. I was a Family & Consumer Education Teacher, which meant keeping up with students ages 12 to 18 and being able to get on the floor for quilting projects, shopping for Food's Labs, being able to climb into a bus for field trips, etc. It broke my heart, but I had to retire. I just couldn't do it physically. In 2008, I had a knee replacement. I have NEVER been sorry. I did all of the exercises I needed to do before the surgery to remain strong and this made the PT in the hospital a breeze. I had some pain from the surgery itself, but it was NOTHING compared to the bone on bone pain caused by the osteoarthritis. I am NOT encouraging you to have surgery at this stage, but I am saying that if at some point you do have to have it, I am sure that there have been advances that are even better than what I had.

    RE KNEE: Saw your friend's comment re: knee. My DH tore his meniscus, but with polychromatic light therapy and lots of resting of knee, he managed to heal it before surgery was required. Very hard to heal tears in the knee due to low level of blood circulation in that joint and blood carries the things body needs to repair. DH is now very cautious with knee and does light therapy daily to stay ahead of any further problems.

    Hope you heal successfully. Be careful. HUGS
