Just turned 71 and it feels so old but I'm still here and I'm still kicking. I live in the Midwest in the summer and in Fl. in the winter. Just want to get and stay healthy. Need some friends to help along the way just found out about this site and thought I'd try it and see. I have 3 sons and 4 grandchildren. I want to be around for them for a long time. I was widowed at age 40 and our boys were 12,13 and 16. My job was to raise them and after they were married I looked for and found another wonderful man. We married about 12 years ago after a devestating incident with a root canal that put me in the hospital for 3 months and a long rehab. I am now happily retired . I am so lucky to have 2 wonderful men in my life plus my wonderful son's as well. My husband is now retired although he had a rough start major back surgery and a stroke he is well on his way to recovery and we are finally starting to enjoy retirement.
My husband had a devestating accident last July where he lost one of his best friends. He was injured badly and is slowly healing.

    Good morning, Judy. Bobbi Anne told me about your knee replacement coming up in a month. I am finally on the other side, not fully recovered but finally able to do pretty much everything I could do before. You told her your husband wasn't exactly happy - mine wasn't either but he was the best caretaking I could have ever asked for once I came home. He did everything for over 6 weeks, when I felt I could finally do some of the cooking and cleaning. But for even a couple weeks after that he still was willing to drive me to physical therapy and anywhere else I needed to go. It was my right knee and I was a bit hesitant to drive.

    If I can answer any questions for you or even just give moral support, please let me know. I am also from the Midwest - we live just outside of Minneapolis, MN.

    Have a wonderful day!

    When you get your knee replaced be sure to check in with my good friend Kathy (Paceka1) who blogged extensively about her knee replacement and is coming along great. She will be wonderfully helpful in telling you what to expect...it's no picnic...but well worth it in the long run. Make sure you get an extremely skilled surgeon...that makes all the difference in the world! Hugs!

    Hi there! Are you all ready for our summer challenge? It's right around the corner and I'm excited to try once again to meet my 5%. I missed it by 2 pounds last time but any loss is a good thing right?

    Thanks for popping by my blog. I hope you are all settled in after your time here in FL. I hope next season we for SURE can meet up. How long have you been coming down here? It's a beautiful place isn't it? Right now though it is bloody HOT! emoticon Thank heavens for a/c. Have a terrific evening my friend! emoticon
