well I am fine from all the surgeries…I recover from surgery quickly. My daughter was in treatment, halfway houses and sober living. She then worked in treatment. She was engaged to an alcoholic we thought was in recovery. She came back here and hasn’t worked in over a year.
I have always validated her feelings from the abuse. I know first hand. I think I still carry trauma both from him and her. I plan on telling her not to talk to me about her father.
I really want to sell this house and downsize. She tells me she would be homeless and resort to drugs again. She started a job today. In a bit of a pit today as I have reached my saturation pointJune 12, 2022 at 8:21 am #402304

The night of each surgery I went up 2 flights of stairs and showered (wrapping my leg carefully) to keep dry. I told myself the Montel Williams quote….:”Mountain get out of my way”. PT begins the next morning in your home. “I” did not need a walker or cane….if you miss meds the pain is very bad. It is only 2 weeks.
Eating arena is being a Foodie…I cave in on sweets. And yet I never caved with knee surgery. I do water aerobics almost daily, walk and today I may buy a bike. Please feel free to tell your friend about me with surgery. The Pain of bone on bone and arthritis is gone replace by surgery recovery. My brother did not have the experience I did. He is heavy, which doesn’t help.
This year (Feb.) I had a bowel resection for diverticulitis which was 100 times worse than knee replacement. The Opioids for surgery added to diverticulitis issue. I had to do what I had to do to take care of me.
I may seriously consider the Property Watch (looking in on homes while owner’s are away….This is Florida and lots of seasonal people are here and then leave and go back North in May or June…TYMay 17, 2022 at 7:06 am #400432
I had the first knee done then 10 weeks later the second knee. I had robotic surgery (quicker recovery) same day surgery. I walk right away but must take prescribed meds for two weeks….PT very important.
I want to enjoy retirement and work on me thru exercise and better eating (not doing well in the eating arena). However, I would like to pull in a few extra dollars. Maybe the channel opened bc this morning I thought about property watch which I did in my cleaning business….east work, on my own, easy to fit in to life…..
