My Soon-to-be-Bionic Wife

Today I’ll be driving my wife to the hospital for knee replacement surgery. This should be fairly straightforward, and will hopefully alleviate at least one piece of the pain she’s been dealing with. (Eventually I suspect we’ll be going back to do the other knee. You’ve got have symmetry, right?)

Also, it’s one step closer to her becoming a cyborg, which is pretty cool.

So please don’t expect much online activity from my little corner of the Internet for a few days.

Good luck and good health to her. Thank goodness those are routine these days. (My stepmother had her second knee done by the team doctor for a major NBA franchise.)

Good luck!

But if she doesn't come back running with that cool 6-Million-Dollar-Man/Bionic-Woman sound... they didn't do it right. ;)

Maybe they could get it as a ringtone... :)

My very best wishes to her and to you and your kids. It will be frustrating for the first few weeks, but in the end, it'll be worth it! (My best friend had her knee replaced about two years ago, and she says it was worth every bit of the pain of the first weeks after surgery since she can walk and move so much more easily.)

Best wishes and good thoughts!

Two of my friends have recently had knee replacements. The improvement in quality of life for both of them is utterly amazing.

Well, that's a *different* way to celebrate the holiday. I hope the surgery goes perfectly (and I vote for the Bionic Woman noise too...). I'm a big fan of "less pain."

Best wishes to you and your cyborg-to-be!

They've gotten good with knees.

Best wishes to your wife as she recovers and to the rest of your family as you help her in her recovery. I've known several people who've had knee replacement surgery and they've all been very happy with the results.

Of course, she may have to get through some pain before she sees the good results; but if she can look to the future, it'll be so bright she'll have to wear shades.
