An Update

Hello all!  It's Katie here, stopping by to give you a quick update on my mom.  Her surgery went smoothly and she came out of anesthesia fairly well, which is no small feat for her.  She'll be in the hospital recovering for the next few days and then will be home, actively working on physical therapy to get her knee back to normal.  Well, better than normal we hope!


Everything we've heard says the exercises after the surgery can be grueling, so we still covet your prayers for her.  Each and every one is appreciated!

That's what I've heard too...the grueling aspect of the recovery exercises...but from what I've seen in friends who have had this surgery...they are better than new afterwards!
Here's to brave Marie for the strength to go through this!!!
Hugs and blessings, Diane
