Friday, October 12 by this time, I will have a new right knee. I have excitement, hesitation, and a little bit of dread. I know when I heal it will be great, but the first two weeks are a big challenge. Fortunately, my terrific husband, Fred will stand by me and guide me through it. My left knee was operated on and replaced on July 19 and it's really quite wonderful for only being 3 months out.
