Finally. I was diagnosed with degenerative osteoarthritis of the right knee when I was 33 years old. My orthopaedic specialist told me that eventually my knee would wear out and I'd have to get a new one. Fast forward 13 years and voila! I'm going to be the Bionic Woman come this time next month :)
This has been a painful journey - even though I am a young woman (yeah - being fortysomething is like being thirtysomething to me!), there are many days when I feel absolutely old and wasted away. For those of you who've watched me on "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway? - you've seen how I dash around..but I was (and still am) in an excruciating amount of pain. But that's all about to change in approximately 29 days - so I am asking all of you for your prayers and good wishes as I lose this bum knee and get a brand new, shiny, titanium one!!
I will actually be out of the office on medical leave for the remainder of the year once my surgery is done...but I will do my best to check in with everyone, just to let you know how things turned out. A new and improved WeddingDIVA is about to emerge...so watch out!!!!
