Okay! I’m committed! The decision to have the knee replacement surgery was not made lightly. After about 18 months of cortisone shots I went to my doctor and said, “I’m done.” He said, “okay, let’s get it scheduled.” So here I go!
Last week I told you about some of the preliminaries. On Friday I did the rest: Covid test, EKG, and blood work. I was really dreading the q-tip-up-the-nose treatment, but she did a throat swab for the Covid test. Quite a relief! Did I luck out or what?
I have talked to SOOO many people who have said that this was the best decision they’d ever made and the proverbial, “why didn’t I do it sooner?” I haven’t had one person say it wasn’t worth it. If you follow my blog you know that I am an ever optimistic person so I’m not scared or worried. I had a discussion with my new neighbor and we were talking about how some people worry so much that they actually talk the problem into existence! Do you know people like that? My husband Rick is a bit more of a realist (as he likes to say), and tends to see the bad before the good. Not me–I like to keep these rose colored glasses on and believe that everything will be just fine.
Isn’t this like any other thing in your life that you are afraid to do? I know that everyone has something in their life that they have approached with trepidation. There are any number of activities that you weren’t sure of doing and then you did it and were glad you took the plunge.
I know the first few days are going to be difficult, as well as the overall long term rehabilitation. Good thing I have a great partner to take care of me! And my sweet neighbors are going to be standing by in case Rick has to go to work. I’d appreciate any prayers you want to send my way! Talk next week!
Essential Oils: I still LOVE and will continue to promote Young Living Essential Oils! If you are new to essential oils, I highly recommend. And I think when you check out the number of companies that are out there you will agree that Young Living is really the best!
Angelica has an aroma that is both soothing and calming. It is often referred to as the “oil of angels” because of its ability to calm anxiety and ease depression.
