    Going under the knife... Tuesday morning

    I'm checking into the hospital for a total knee replacement, in the morning. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30am. I will be in the hospital the rest of the week, so I won't be around much for a while. The doctor told me to expect to be at home for 8-12 weeks. I'm diabetic so that makes for some additional risks. I'm a little nervous to say the least.

    Keep me in your thoughts and prayers and I'll check back in as soon as I can.

    Good luck. Make sure you mark the knee they are NOT supposed to operate on. I used "Cut" and "Don't cut" when I was being operated on. But I was in a military hospitol.

    Will say a prayer for you and yeah, sadly, marking the right knee is a good idea.
