Sorry, all for the absence. I was back in the hospital for surgery on the new knee. It got infected and they had to reopen it. Brought in an Infectious Disease specialist. Just got home last night, they put a shunt in and I will be on medication until Jan.10th., every day. What a Christmas this is going to be. However, I do wish you all a wonderful holiday season, and a Happy New Year. Will try to keep you updated. Love you all.

I can finally sit for longer than a few minutes and want to thank all of you for your kindness and healing wishes.
Having a knee replaced was more stressful than I thought it would be. Adding to that I popped a deep stitch and started bleeding just as I thought I was getting better. I was put on bed rest for five days, ice packs and a brace to keep the leg straight.
I know I will heal and thank all of you for your prayers, but it is going to take more time than I originally thought. It is an exhausting surgery and took me by surprise.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. I hope to be back soon.
Bless you, all. ♥♥♥

I will be offline for a while. I am busy doing all the preop instructions, seeing primary doctor and surgeon, going to the hospital for a class and speak to the head nurse, filling out tons of paperwork, etc. I have to have my knee replaced, I was told it’s not that big of a deal. The photo above doesn’t look like no big deal to me. Had to stop taking certain meds starting today, and no vitamins, or anti-inflammatory, have to shower with a powerful antibiotic soap every day including the day of surgery. The photo above is what I can expect, ugh! I am stressed but I know I will make it through. I don’t know when I will be back online on a regular basis. However, it will give me time to read, I hope. If so I will be writing reviews whenever possible. Please don’t think I am slacking off because I’m not. I will miss reading many wonderful posts to share on social media. I’ll probably lose some followers as well but I know my friends will be here when I return. I will miss you all and look forward to returning ASAP. Please say a little prayer for me on Nov. 10th. Love you all. xoxo Patricia from The Writers Desk. ☺☺☺
