Great to be back home and on here again ,although being in hospital was like a mini holiday with a difference!
All seems to be going as it should go and I passed the tests well in hospital for my homecoming. In all I was there from 4 January at noon, having the op around 4.00 pm and left on 9 January around 7.00 pm. I prolonged my stay that day for just one last delicious meal! Husband went to the restaurant and brought his dinner back on a tray to my room so we ate together on the last night of my stay. We did not order any wine, as I needed all my senses to be in top top condition to walk along the corridors, down the 4 flights of stairs and get into the car and manage a curb too!! The nurses kindly asked if I wanted wheelchair help to leave the hospital! The look of shock horror on my face must have said it all and we left laughing!
Should anyone have any questions, fears or whatever about having a total knee replacement, I shall try to answer them as well as I am able, based on how I have found it all to be.
I am very positive as that is how I feel and how all has gone for me so far.........
I believe someone has asked me a question about my op but I do not seem able to find my original thread which was called something like "See ya Lata Guys and Gals".......
The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.
If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.
