Waiting

Well there's just a night's sleep separating me from the operation to replace my right knee. I'm on at 0900 tomorrow. The disadvantage is that I'd fully intended to write some letters and even read a book. However I'll have at least 5 days to do that after the operation apparently. 



I've discovered that we are allowed our phones or iPads and that there is wifi. So instead of being separated from my phone for 24 hours until tomorrow night  I am able to communicate to my heart's contentment. Mind you writing emails, comments and now a post on the iPhone is an interesting experience. 

So this is me signing off until after the operation and when I'm back in the land of the living.

    1. Well Pat perhaps skipping will be overstating it. I'll settle for a brisk walk down the ward.

  5. I'm trying to guess what TKR might mean, but so far can't think of anything sensible. Well, hopefully the doctor knows! Wish you a good result of the op. And glad to know you'll have wifi for distraction :)

  6. Well done you for blogging on the run (so to speak). They say that wi-fi is the new basic need at the bottom of Maslows Needs hierarchy.

    1. Adrian trust you to come up with the obviously sensible answer. It was trashed in my fencing days.

  12. GB I pray that your op goes well and that even though your doc has not mentioned any benefits of the surgery that he is more than qualified to perform the op.
    So happy for you that you have access to wifi, this surely will make it easier...I know it has made it easier for me to know how you're doing during this time.
    Adrian above always makes me laugh Trashed Knee Right...I'm sure he made you laugh too.
