Off to the Hospital

Don't expect any new posts here for a while. Tomorrow, I'm off to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital for my double knee replacement surgery. I'll be back to blogging as soon as I get computer access again; I hope I'll have it in rehab. I won't be back home for a while.

Fortunately, my brother from Utah will be here for about a week to take care of things, and a few friends have stepped up to help. Expect a later post on the value of family and friends in times of need.

Wish me luck, and share my hope that even for knee surgery, it's "Never too Late!" I want to walk comfortably again.

I just stumbled across your blog and find your latest post is something I can certainly relate to. I have had both knees replaced although not at the same time. It'll hurt a lot for a while but before you know it, you'll feel like a new woman. Of course it's never too late but l soon enough you'll be telling yourself, why did I wait so long.

Hope all goes well with your surgery! Eat lots of chocolate! That will help the recovery process!

I dropped by to say hello, Marlys. Am wondering how you are after surgery, and when you'll feel like blogging to tell us about it. I hope you aren't being too impatient with the healing process!

Take care.

I hope this worked out for year. Had this done myself when I retired and it was a great decision. I can walk all day now on my beloved trout streams. Before I couldn't last fifteen minutes

Oct. 28 and thinking of you. I hope you are doing well with therapy and wanted you to know it'll be wonderful to read a post from you again!

Marlys, I wish you a speedy recovery, and perhaps more importantly, a positive recovery process!

I look forward to your update during/after rehab.

I'm glad to learn that you're still around. What are you doing now? I still miss the Elders Tribune.
