Well here I am on day 12 of my pre-op diet and things are still going pretty well. The diet part is fine but it's making me really tired. Thursday's the big day so keep me in your prayers!!

My sister is a nurse..she had her knees repaired a few years ago but now it's time to replace them. She will do fine because that is her nature...She's a very matter of fact kind of person. You do what you have to do and let it go.

WOW I don't believe I would want to have both knees done at once. It seems like it would be impossible.
My doctor didn't recommend it at all and said he wouldn't do it.
I am so tired tonight so might have a good night's sleep again.
Thanks for your note. You are an angel.

I'm glad you're doing so well with PT and your knee being able to bend to the right degree. Keep up the good work! My sis is having both done between Christmas and New Years.

It is in the 70's this morning. Over the week end it is to get into the 40's which is cold for us.
Yesterday I washed my bedding, had been washing for two days, the house cleaner came and the PT came to sign me up for a month more of PT while she was still here.
After the PT and house cleaner left I went out for a bit.
I had a good night's sleep for a change. The two nights before I had slept a total of 3 hours.
I knew I had to get more sleep in.

Things are looking up. The bend on my knee is 105 on the machine and at least 100 when the pt bends it back.
I can sleep on my side now w/o pain.
Thanks for your comments, your prayers and goodies. I don't get on here every day but do get on some.
I keep busy.

Happy Saturday everyone. Remember to turn your clocks back an hour tonight before you go to bed or you'll have missed what you had planned in the am. In my case I'd be going to church when everyone else was coming out. Not good since I play in the Praise band! emoticon

Had a great turn out for our church's trunk treats last night in the church parking lot. We had somewhere between 150 and 170 kids plus adults. We gave out free hot dogs, chips, and drinks. I dressed as a kitty or cat lady, whichever.

So here it is November already. I have the fireplace mantle decorated for Thanksgiving. I have have photos made as small as possible to fit into ornaments that hold a picture. I need 3 different kitties for my brother and 3 different ones for us. Two of ours and my brother's are of cats that have passed on. We each have one now so that's good. Mine is Max, and his is Mr. Jinx.You can see their pictures along with all the others in my album. I want to get them done so I can send them right before Thanksgiving for their tree.

That's what's going on in my world. what about yours? emoticon

I'm sorry. I have had some really bad days and busy doing therapy, etc also. I love therapy now.
Someday I may tell you about everything. I was so discouraged.
I am doing really well today and things are looking up.
My phone broke but won't go into details.
Had a nice birthday.
Hope all are well and happy.
God bless.

WHY DO WE CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY?

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.

We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans online this Fourth of July.

Happy Birthday, America!



“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

This is taken from a Spark Blog.

Your achy joints can predict the weather.

Stories of people’s creaky joints before rainfall aren’t old wives' tales, says orthopedic surgeon Robert Tait, MD. "When a storm front moves in, the atmospheric pressure drops. Major joints’ sensory nerve endings register a relative increase in joint fluid pressure, resulting in increased pain." Frequent aches sound unpleasant, but at least those with psychic joints know when to bring an umbrella!

Had some friends do some grocery shopping for me. They have done so much for me.
She put the groceries away and saw I had a big load of towels I had washed earlier so she folded them and put them away and put the next load of washing in to wash. Just got them out of the dryer and hung up.
I am walking more and more inside. My operated leg is better than the other one now.

ALL OF YOU CAN READ THIS.
I am driving. Drove to a neighboring town for lunch today with friends. We had such a good visit.
Was going to get a perm today but thought it might be a bit too much right now.
Saw the doctor's assistant Thursday and he was more than pleased with my progress and the bend in my knee. I go back in two months.
Today the PT came and he was also pleased with my progress. He even had me walking in my condo w/o the walker, just hanging on to his arm. I will see him three times a week.
My other knee pains more than the operated one and I limp because of it. I have limped for years.
People are so good to me and have been such a help. I have a wonderful church family and people from two other churches have visited and one couple really has helped me a lot.

No time to be bored today. Made some urgent calls, had other calls, had a visitor, the nurse came, my insurance came out to put the spare on my car as when I got home I had a flat and the tire is ruined, a good friend came to bring me lunch and it was so good. She went down and picked up my mail also.
I am still below goal but have a lot of swelling.

I had a lot to cope with but it is almost up to the surgery now. House in order, car fixed, a/c fixed, income tax done.
This morning I went to the border of Mexico to do mission work did other errands and got my hair done. Now I am ready for a nap.

It is 55 here right now but is supposed to get into the 80's today.

Today I plan to check over my income tax. It is finished but I always check it over before sending it in.
Then lunch with friends who are both having health issues. He is 87 she is 90.

Also want to call the surgery center where I am to have the knee replacement on the 1st of March to see what I need to do before.

Right now I don't feel like I need it.

Tomorrow will go to the Mexican border to do mission work.

God bless all and have a good day.

Do drugstores carry CALM? I have restless leg syndrome at night sometimes and it drives me "crazy". I'll have to look for it. Thanks for the information. I may mention it to my Dr. first to make sure it won't interfere with my medicine for depression.

I am very pleased! I am feeling really pretty well! I use a magnesium supplement sometimes for restless legs at night called "Calm." I really like it. The swelling is almost gone now, but I am going to be having more oral surgery over the next two years. I will try that next time. Do you get a combo supplement or does it matter? Thanks everybody!

When my husband had various things, I gave him calcium/ magnesium like Adelle Davis used to say, and the swelling and pain was better and vitamin C

Hope you feel better.

Nothing done to the mouth is fun., Hope you feel better soon.

Playing my sax is how I connect with God. That gift is from God and I use it to Glorify His name. It's not bout me..it's all about HIM.

Hello everybody! I have been busy but am thankful for this group. I had oral surgery so am feeling nauseous and lethargic. I hope everyone has a blessed day!
