I'm having surgery

Monday at 6a.m.
I am having

surgery on my left knee.
I was injured back in August at work.
I have done phyiscal therapy and all that they have asked.
This was scheduled the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
The day before the surgery my insurance canceled it.
Today I get a phone call
"Misty you are scheduled to have surgery Monday at 6a.m."

This will be me for a while. Wonderful!!
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
I pray they can fix my knee - it pops every time I make a step.
I have my playstation and crochet ready.
I will stockpile on magazines and some comfort food.
I will have my starbucks oatmeal and latte waiting on me when I get home.

Minus the beer I think this is the life when you are laid up.
I plan on healing. I am ready to get this fixed and secretly I am ready to rest.
So when you are on your way to work Monday..
Please say a prayer for me
and if you could send Twinkies..
That would be Simply Divine!!


  1. This too you can handle, Misty. You're strong. Shall be sending good thoughts your way Monday morning.

  2. Hey girl.. I am sending loads and loads of Twinkies.. shall I come up with some and blog them!
    You are in my thoughts..
    Just got out of the ER myself.. It must be in the air..

  3. Good luck with the surgery. I will have you in my prayers on Monday morning. I would try and send you Twinkies but I would probably have them eaten before I got to the post office!
    You will be in my thoughts.

  4. Love you, sweetie, you're in my prayers!

  5. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I had knee surgery a number of years ago (in my teens), it made the biggest difference and I'm sure it kept me from any more knee problems as I've gotten older. If you are having the laser surgery your recovery will be much faster.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  6. You'll be in my prayers. I had knee surgery back in '97. I dislocated my patella while dancing at my son's wedding reception...don't ask! My specialist and I tried to put off surgery with PT, but after 6 mos. I couldn't put it off any longer. Mine was laser and while I was down for a bit, the result was wonderful. I wish I had it done earlier. Good luck!

  7. Misty...we'll be praying for you, sweetie! I've had knee surgery too...and recovery for me was TERRIFIC!! The knee surgeon said that I would have a TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT within 5 years, due to the deterioration from my injury. That was 15 years ago!! And, I'm walking just as normal as can be...and I just turned 60 in October.


  8. good luck for a the day and a quick recovery.

  9. Good luck with your surgery!!

  10. Lots of thoughts and prayers going your way. God bless you Sweetie. Hugs...Tracy :)

  11. Good luck Misty, I'd say 'break a leg", but that would just be wrong! :o)
    Enjoy your enforced rest, it will be frustrating, but maybe it's the universe deciding you need to take it easy for a while...

  12. Uh-oh, looks like I need to get another cane in the mail!

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're gonna be laid low for a bit, but knowing you, it won't keep you down long. You Six sisters are fighters!

    Prayers for a quick and painless recovery!


  13. Best wishes Misty! I hope the surgery does the trick and gets your knee back to normal!



  14. ouch! wishing all the best for a speedy recovery!

  15. Hope you have a quick, no pain and fun recovery..fun because I LOVE all the things you mentioned to do during said time :)I blew out my knee when I lost weight years ago..training for the Revolon Breast Cancer Awareness 3 day walk...never got to do the walk...but I got to keep the bum knee lol ohh and I lost 1/2 my weight so it was a win win kinda thing :) Heal well and be happy! Besos, Rose...

  16. I don't know for sure, but I am pretty sure Twinkies and beer might help with your recovery! Lay back, relax and let the healing begin! I will be saying prayers for you on Monday!

  17. Good luck! I hope all goes well for you and you get the healing that you need.

    Praying for you!

  18. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery!!! Our prayers will be with you!
