In just two days I will be sporting a new and improved knee–my ‘bionic knee’ as my friends so lovingly chide me. In the beginning, it will most likely feel a nuisance, but I am told that give it a few months and I will be grateful for the switch. One thing I promise, I will be sure to take notes and let you know my own personal assessment of the whole thing.
After all, it wasn’t that long ago I gave birth and was told that it was a mild discomfort followed by total amnesia on the pain aspect after laying eyes on my new and precious bundle.
Granted laying my eyes on the precious bundle was an incredible and indelible experience, however, the total pain amnesia? What where they smoking when they told me that pack of lies? I still remember what it felt like and while the memories have faded, they are there, and believe me and that is one reason I have total compassion for any woman going through labor. While I would go through them again to have these five beauties, don’t tell me that it didn’t hurt–it did. I think being prepared for anything far surpasses some sugar coated explanation –because you know what you are dealing with.
So, to the best of my ability, I will share the good, the bad, the ugly, but probably no visuals of this experience of my life as a no longer limping 51-year-old. I am, however, expecting to leap tall buildings with a single bound.
We’ll see—- Stay tuned
