I can't wait to be able to walk and hopefully get some real exercise again without hurting so much.
You'll be great!!!!! I have quite a few family members (related to me or DW) that have bionic knees. Everyone quite happy with the result.

@Bruce, good luck to your step sister... They told me that if I hit the threshold of "obese" that they would not do the surgery...
Thanks. I was a bit surprised as well, I don't know what she weighs but I know she is WAY past the "obese" BMI range. All that weight has to make it hard on the new joint.

* a whole year older than me, the younger of the older stepsisters is only a month older than me. And yes they are biological sisters. I guess my step mother found out that nursing a baby isn't a form of birth control

What used to be called "Irish twins". :lol: My maternal uncles were only 10-11 months apart. Then my mother came along 8 years later. Obviously my grandmother figured out what caused it! 4th child came along when the eldest boy was about 15. Maybe that is taking it to the extreme!

I talked to her yesterday. She has pain, of course. But it should be better in a few more days. They keep the door closed and bring food to her-and all the residents. That is the covid protocol for nursing homes-isolation to keep covid from spreading. That probably does more damage to people than the covid itself. I pity the people stuck in such circumstances. Fortunately for her, it won't be for very long.
