It’s your time to shine here at InLinkz 249 Senior Salon Pit Stop.

Update on my surgery: The partial knee replacement went well and the surgeon is happy with the results. Due to a minor hickup, I ended up staying in hospital for 2 nights, in stead of the originally planned one.

Then some delays on discharge day as the surgery took place in a different medical zone (remember I am in Canada). This entire process was initiated 36 months ago so I did not want to start it all over again. We now reside (we move approximately 5 months ago) so they had to get in touch with the new zone medical team and transfer me as a patient etc. etc. Eventually all sorted after about 4 hours forward and backward between many parties but they made it work. Kudos to the staff and hospital workers for doing this, they were just awesome.

Bottom line, I am happy to be home and settling in well. It’s a long road ahead, but already making progress day by day. Thank you all for your kind wishes. It does mean a lot to me.

I apologize in advance, if this post does not turn out the same as the other SSPS or if I made any mistakes with linking or whatever, but I am working from my iPad.

    • Thank you Barbara. Yes, I am a happy camper and am doing well and walking around with my walker in the house and taking it easy, doing my physio and will have the drain and dressing removed tomorrow evening so that will be another step forward. Thanks for your kind wishes.

  1. THANK YOU for the mention of my Bread Pudding with Caramel Bourbon Sauce! Prayers going your way for a speedy recovery! If you have a walker (like I did after hip replacement in October), after 2 weeks when I didn’t need it anymore ~ I felt like those “revival movies” when someone throws it in the air and yells “I’m cured!” (haha). I know what you’re going through ~ and there’s light at the end of that tunnel!

    • Hi Cynthia, Super happy to have you listed and thanks for your kind encouragement and note. Yes, I do use a walker at the moment, and am up more now than in am in bed and obviously trying to move as much as the knee will tolerate. But tomorrow will be end of week one, and I feel very confident that all will go well and hopefully, as you did, be able to stop the walker after another week. Yes, there’s ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel, I truly believe that.

  2. Thanks for featuring my post about financial safety online, I was updating it this morning when I found the email from you. I’m glad to hear you have the surgery over and are in the recovery phase. Wow, 36 months is a long time. Americans complain if they have to wait 36 days so I commend you for your patience. Take all the time you need to get better.

    • Hi Aletha, Thanks for dropping and your note. I am so happy to have your post up and on the list. As for the surgery, yes it’s a long wait but not according to medical standards life threatening and with the C virus everting backlogged so I am happy the knee replacement eventually took place and that’s the main thing for me. Take care
