Linda has been going through tests on her knee that was replaced (a lot of pain lately). Doctors told her 1 of 4 things- all require surgery…
- Infection (don’t think this is it due to some nuclear medicine tests)
- Device is loose causing pieces of bone to break off and cause inflamation
- The device is defective- this is what they are leaning toward- will need to be taken out and replaced
- Her body is rejecting the knee- allergic to device
So she goes back agin next week and they will determine how to treat it or when to operate- this means another 6-12 weeks off work (means no Spring Break or Summer trip to New York) also she will lose pay so budget will be tight.
Next week she also works Thanksgiving so… with an upcoming unknown future, we decided to decorate for Christmas (Darian helped give me the itch) and tomorrow we are having our Thanksgiving. We will decorate the tree to the smell of turkey!
So- please say a prayer for Linda- (this is a painful process) for strength and a quick recovery. We still have a few things to finish in the decorating but will finish tomorrow. We are having a healthy meal of turkey, dressing and some vegetables. Over Thanksgiving I will bake cookies for the veterans. This week I hope to finish up the wrapping and mailing of packages. Let the holidays begin!
