Hi all, Ive been absent for couple of weeks, and not had any decent internet access, so its going to take me a while to catch up with everyone, old and new.
BUT I just wanted to share something with you.
Im 7 months out from right TKR, and having left TKR in 18 days time. I had a very specific goal all the way through recovery from the first one - to go snorkelling in the Red Sea when we went on holiday to Egypt. Well, guess what? Yep, I only went and did it!! Off a floating pontoon on the jetty at the hotels House Reef. And oh my, did it feel good! I was limping all over the place on dry land, but when I got in that water - one of the lovely beach staff called me a Mermaid
SO mission accomplished, got back in the early hours of this morning. Now its time to prepare for my next surgery, both practically, by way of housework, organisation etc, and also mentally, as I have literally been living in a little bubble for 2 weeks, trying not to think about the inevitable......
Im guessing that there may well be a few new members since I was last on here, and I know a couple of forumites will have had their surgeries - Elaine A, how are you my lovely??
Ill catch up with everything soon, but I just wanted to share with you all - 6 months ago it seemed an impossibility, but I lived my dream!!
