Trigger Happy Ted is getting a new knee

Recommended Posts

Ted is going in for a knee replacement tomorrow morning. While not a serious procedure, surgery under general anesthesia is serious enough. Besides he's now a certified "old fart", he turned 70 last week. So prayers are in order. My wife, Clementine Pennyfeather, has her church prayer line on the job. But the more the better.

Prayers up for "the old man". Ted is a great pard to shoot with and swap lies with as well.

 

May the medicos work efficiently and skillfully, and may recovery be a breeze.

 

God Bless,

Had both of mine replaced 4 years ago. No, not at the same time. The surgeries went so well that I was shooting a match 13 days after the surgery. Here's hoping his goes just as well.

Praying the knee replacement will work as doctors and Ted expect.

Free from pain & infection.

Ted whoops up on me as it is, with a bionic knee he'll really be off to the races.

 

Best of luck to Ted, Misty, and the nurses.

I worked with a skinny old farrr ... a skinny old farrr ... a skinny old GEEZER and we both worked ambulance, he was beyond retirement age, he'd been a professional chauffeur and he was a darn good medic partner.

He'd had one knee replaced once and the other knee replaced twice.

This ornery old farrr ... farrr ... this skinny old geezer could work me into the ground any day he wanted, go out and dance all night and come back and do it again the next day and make it look EASY ... and he told me, "Kels, if I knew how much better my knees would feel, I'd have had them replaced before they went bad!"

My wife had her right knee replaced on Dec 5. About 4 days in the hospital, then to a residential rehab center 8 days for therapy. She has been at home now for about 10 days. She still walks with a walker due to balance. She experienced some muscle cramping on the sides of the incision that was painful. The knee pain is gone now. Just dealing with the post surgical recovery.
