Time Provided – My New Knee

Not that anyone really cares about my new knee except me, but I am excited and a little bit nervous about this operation!

WHY AM I EXCITED?  

  1. I have needed this done for over 12 years.  Originally docs told me I   was too young and to wait until I could not stand the pain anymore.
  2.  I have finally reached my pain limit and it is time to do this – NOW!
  3.  I will now have time to write, write, write and read, read, read!
  4.  I need some time off to “relax” doing what I love to do – write.
  5. I can stay in my jammies all day if I want to – make breakfast when I feel like it and don’t have to rush off to the office.

WHY AM I NERVOUS?

  1. I don’t like pain and I know I am still going to have some until I get healed up completely.
  2. I might go crazy staying home all the time and not being able to get up and go whenever I feel like it.
  3. I have down-sized my business so that I can handle everything from home and I have ALWAYS worked.  This will be a whole new concept for me – just doing whatever I want, whenever I want.  Kind of sounds like fun – – but I’m not sure!
  4. I have never spent every waking moment with my husband – am I ready for this?
  5. I’m retirement age – how did that happen?  I think it sneaked up on me and caught me off guard.

So there it is folks – retirement, relaxation at home??? and surgery.  Just what we all have been striving for since we started working.  Except for the surgery part.  Everyone I have talked with tells me that I will be glad I got the surgery done and that I will be up and around in no time (6 weeks).

We will see how much I enjoy all of this.

Better Than Boring

I will keep you updated!

  1. Good luck with your surgery. Recovery is never fun, but many times not as bad as we think it will be. It sounds like you planned ahead, a very smart move. As for your husband, he needs a hobby after you’ve recovered, even the best of people grate each others nerves when they’re around each other all the time!

    • Thanks – I am learning there is a pain curve which lets you know where you are in the healing process. My husband has plenty of work with the animals to keep him busy. He also knows I already have “cabin fever” and need to get out. Ha, ha, ha, I just don’t know if I have the energy to go out! 🙂
