Csziggy is about to embark on this adventure too. I wish her well! I will keep her in my thoughts Tuesday, and all the following days...

It's a tough surgery, and she's going to have the other knee replaced too, down the road apiece.

As soon as she is "svelete enough to be an acceptable surgical risk. At the moment, she is on track for bariatric surgery, and is on a "modified fasting" plan ( with classes, nutritionist support, etc.) Some tough sleddin' ahead, for sure.... long story short, she has already gotten titanium hips.
It ain't easy bein' us.
