    Dear Carolyn, You must be quite in suspense about your knee replacements - mixed feelings, I imagine, the good ones being looking forward to pain-free movement. Very very best wishes for not too much discomfort until then and a successful operation!

    I remember that moment when I had to admit to myself that online teaching has it’s good points and can even be fun!

    The last two months have been a bit of an ordeal, but Shiro is finally in the operating theater. I just spent twenty minutes with him before he went in. He’s in good spirits, and except for his doctor, everyone is very nice and professional. He will have a temporary ostomy for three months so I will be learning a new caregiving technique.

    Cathy is living with us now. It’s really nice to have her with us. Her plan is to stay about a year.

    I’ll have to meet the doctor again in a few hours. I wonder if I can turn his lousy bedtime manner with oodles of my charm!!

    It's funny isn't it, I'm just now realizing how often I'd been checking Google News while steeling myself for another blow. This slow-moving, slightly ho-hum news is great!

    I don't know much about knee replacements either, but from talking to people who've had it, I was trying to imagine you going through the recovery/physical therapy period with both legs out of commission at the same time and it just seemed like too much. Seems like it would be better to concentrate on one leg at a time.

    Doubling you up, there’s a lot to be said for that. My replacements were three months apart. You will eventually be extremely grateful you joined the bionic babes club. WERK ahead, doing it makes all the difference. I can appreciate it’s extremely difficult to move right about now, buuuuuuuut anything you do to strengthen the ligaments and tendons that will support your new knees will make a TON of difference.
