Hey, looks like this little guy is going to be named "Sir Loin", with the voting almost over.
So, about that washing machine I bought at Home Depot? The delivery people were supposed to call last night and let me know whether they'd be here this morning or this afternoon. They never called. So I typed "Home Depot delivery" into my Swagbucks search engine (which has already netted me a $5 Amazon gift card), and I found an endless list of complaints. I'm wondering if I can call them and cancel the order. I'll gladly go to Sears, which was my original destination anyhow.
Someone asked if I have considered getting total knee replacements: Indeed, I am not only considering it, I'm planning on it. Most people I know who have had knee replacements are quite happy with their results. I do know of some people who had staph set in (a possibility after any surgery), and Cliff's cousin knows someone personally who died from the staph infection caused by the surgery. I also know some people who had TNR and didn't get as much pain relief as they had expected.
It's all these variables that make me keep delaying the surgery. Twice I have developed pain in my knees that was bad enough that it would have prompted me to have replacements, but the Orthopedist trimmed and scraped the meniscus, and that stopped the pain.
So it isn't a question of "if" I'll have this procedure; it's only a question of "when". I do intend to have it done in wintertime, because who wants to be laid up during motorcycle and gardening season?
