    Well, it's finally time for my knee surgery on my right knee. The surgery is scheduled for 10:45 a.m., Thursday, June 22nd.

    I discovered when I went to the doctor that I need two total knee replacements; however, this particular surgery is just to repair the damage that was done to my knee when I fell out of my computer chair a couple months ago.

    I may be absent from the computer for a couple days or more, until I can comfortably sit at my desk again!

    A nurse from the hospital called me this morning to pre-register me. When I was going over my list of 25++ prescriptions that I took, including Lortab for my back pain, she sarcastically said that since I already had pain meds, that the doc probably won't give me anything for my knee when I am dismissed.

    Once again, she said it in a tone that made me feel like I was a dope head!!! Ugh!!!

    Well ..... wish me luck .... and hope that they can fix the problem and that my knee will no longer cause me tons of pain! I could not sleep at all last night due to it hurting so badly.

    Love you all,
    Janet

    Good luck on your surgery and hope you're back soon. I don't post a lot but I read a lot of your articles. Too bad you can't go early and hobble in the pre-register office and slap that lady around a little, make your day a little brighter.... just a thought.

    Hugz,
