    Well, the day has finally arrived I have to be in between 7.00am to 7.30am tomorrow morning. I have been told that it will be a 45 minute op and depending on how I am afterwards, I can go home later that day

    When I saw the pre-assessment nurse last week, she did an ecg and other bits and bobs. I also had to have mrsa swabs taken because Chris had been in hospital within the last 12 months, I haven't heard anything so that was obviously clear :) She said that I was the 2nd on the list and I did tell her about my panic attacks so she made a note - I wasn't going to say anythng but Chris said I should as I just never know what will bring one on and as stress is one of the biggest causes, as usual he is probably right

    I am hoping and praying that it will make a difference because it is so painful again at the moment The consultant as explained though that it might not make a difference but he will do what he can. It is mainly to see if I need a full or partial knee replacement.

    I'm not sure what happens afterwards, I know I will be strapped up for a few days and I must do some excercises, but other than that I don't know

    I will get Chris to let you know how it went and I will log on when I can









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    All the best Wendy.
    Just think about how mobile you will be after the operation, and that hopefully will make it more bearable for you.
    We`ll all be thinking of you.
