I spoke with Jan for quite a while last night - she sounds really good - and relieved that the surgery is finally over! She wanted me to pass along her thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts and promises she'll be back online just as soon as she can - mobility isn't one of her strong points right now, with 10 steps between floors of her home, well, that makes it pretty impossible right now for her to post or email herself.
We're all thinking of you Jan; and now that the proper diagnosis and treatment are under way, I'm sure you'll have a smooth recovery and be back with us soon!
Hey Guys..only on real brief today..on MEGA painpills..hello VICODIN! LOL..really knocks u out..anyways..yea like Deb said I don't have a laptop ( can't afford it I am a Cher fan) LOL..but for today my relative stopped by and 'just for today' I have one a little bit! LOL..they need it for business though and are taking it back today..hopefully once stitches out maybe I can do steps? the computer is unfortunately downstairs and I completely can't do one step let alone 10:( Anyways..glad surgery over..in mega pain though ..but not even been a wk yet though.praying this all ends soon..unfortunately as Deb and Bob know the lovely phy therapist messed up (and yes TORE!!!!) my meniscus in the other knee as well (the one that was NOT operated on:( Begged surgeon to do Both at once but he said they're not allowed..I was like Pls I got Cher going on here! LOL..needless to say they said they were not allowed not just for insurance reasons (they said no too I asked! LOL) but just a flat NO..the doc said even for his wife he wouldn't do 2 at once..so got a lot ahead of me and endless rehab I know..dr has me outta work..the damage unfortunately was bad he said:( oh well.. Like my grandma always said..this too shall pass ( I Hope)..hated missing Lady Cher (had SUCH good seats this wk too:( And missing Cher convention:( But the girls texted and called and filled me in and having nice time..can't wait to hear more and see everyone's pics..I'm there in spirit..thanks to all for the gifts//the baskets..the food//the cards..the emails etc..Cher fans rock:)...Love, Jan XXOO
