Rachel brought her labtop so I could post an update. I had my surgery a week early. Some of you knew that. But I had it done on Friday the 13th! So I got my new knee with some complications. I have some slightly deformmed bones in my legs (which I knew from when I was a child) so when they were cutting the bone to fit the prosthetic knee, they ended up severing my MCL tendon. So they had to repair that as well. Was in the hospital for about 6 days and am now in a rehab center. I'm up with a walker but have to use a hinged knee brace. When I'm in bed or in a chair I can take it off. Physical therapy is going well. My range of motion is getting better every day. My daughter, Emily, has been taking care of my kitties. I miss them so much! I'm sure at least Maxx is going nuts without me there. He's my little shadow. Anyway.... I want to get off and go visit with Mason for a few minutes. Please keep me in your prayers and thoughts. I sure need them. My recovery is going to be a bit slower because of the tendon issues.
