Surgery tomorrow
« on: October 08, 2004, 04:26:06 AM »
I have cooked the last supper, and filled the fridge with leftovers and the freezer with those wonderful frozen microwavable  goodies the kids like. Plus about 6 12 packs of soda. Took up the throw rugs, did 40 plus loads of laundry, stocked up for everybody, checked homework, and now will take a shower, and ,hopefully, sleep a little before time to leave in the morning. I can't believe that I am having a surgery that has no definitive plans. Keep me in your thoughts, please, and pray this OS finally makes it painfree, if not right. Thanks, Teresa  Arthroscopic removal of damaged screw,bone biopsy, possible arthrotomy, with plastic insert removal and replasement, possible revision, and possible removal of prosthesis . LOTS OF IFS  Friday at 8:30 am .
On going instrumentation failure, chronic infection,

Teresa,

I hope this surgery goes well.  You really have such a huge spirit, raising your kids and doing the housework and keeping everything running smoothly.  You deserve a break.  I hope all goes well and your pain will be better soon.

Love, Christina
