And Another Surgery In The Family!!
Well, I will keep this brief as I have a lot to do, and so little time to do it in, before my Surgery in 2 weeks from tomorrow!! But we found out today that our Daughter Kat, is having Knee Surgery this Thursday!! She went in to the Orthopedic Surgeon today, and apparently her Knee is bad enough that he wants to do Surgery this week! She injured it somehow (she doesn't even remember hurting herself, just that it started to hurt) in High School.
She has been repeatedly to Doctors throughout the years ever since, hoping to get relief. She has been in pain for about 12 yrs now, and finally they determine that it is something that Surgery will help. Luckily for her, it is to be a quick Surgery, and she shouldn't have to even spend the night in the Hospital. It is done via Arthroscopic Surgery, very similar to Laparoscopic Surgery for us Lap Banders. And I believe that the Surgery they will be performing is called a Meniscectomy. They will be repairing a Meniscal Tear??? Or something like that, at least that is what she is telling us. I'm surprised that they aren't doing a complete Knee Replacement. So anyway, please send good thoughts and prayers her way on Thursday....!!
Well, I better go, as I said, I have so much to do in so little time....we are trying to either sell our Gold Wing Motorcycle, or trade it in, towards a new Subaru Outback. I will keep you posted, as I am ever hopeful that this will occur before my Surgery!! Till next time....
