Total Left Knee Replacement Surgery Tomorrow.

Oh, the joy. Of course I’m having some of those last minute trepidation’s and anxiety, but literally millions of other folks have had this same surgery and come out fine. I will too. I’m only 71 and reasonably healthy.

And I get a ROBOT to do my actual replacement! How cool is that? Wish I could video it. (Film it? what is the proper word for that now?)

So, if I’m not doing too badly tomorrow I’ll check back in.

Probably.

Maybe.
