Let's DO This

Image found on Bonesmart.org 

Finally. By the time y'all read this, hopefully I will be peacefully snoring away while getting a new knee installed.

I think instillation sounds better than "major joint replacement surgery".

I'm not certain what I'll be capable of blogging-wise afterwards, so I'm planning on taking a short hiatus from Reasonably Well. I'm guessing it will be approximately a week, but I may pop in sooner.

While I can be lazy for a bit here, this does NOT mean that y'all can be slacking off. Here's your assignment while I'm gone: to visit The Seated View for your daily #ChronicChristmas tip. I am assigning Terese as your classroom monitor while I'm gone and will expect a full report of everyone's activities in my absence. I expect that everyone will behave themselves in an appropriate manner while I'm gone, people.

Yes, this means YOU. And you know who you are....

See you soon.

Good luck, Julia! Get your rest now and then we'll see what that new knee can do!

Hi Julia.
By now surgery is over and you have been up walking at least once.
You will not get much rest in the hospital with nurse visits, physical therapy, occupational therapy etc.
The ice cooling machine for the knee is awesome and then of course the noisy bending machine( do they still do that?)
Wishing you fast healing and recovery. Take your pain RX like they say and make your PT person outside of hospital ice you after therapy session.
I will look forward for your posts about it all.😆

Miss your posts! I am sure you'll have some interesting and humorous stories to write about this experience once you are feeling better. In the meantime, take care of yourself.
