An update about my medical situation for my friends. I had knee replacement surgery in June of this year to replace a previously implanted knee joint that wore out. Unfortunately, it became infected and in July had to be removed with an antibiotic rod inserted. I then went through antibiotic therapy until October 6th of this year when another surgery to determine if the knee joint could be inserted was performed. However, there was still infection so another antibiotic rod was inserted and I am back on antibiotic therapy until a 4th surgery can be done to finally insert a knee joint. But, don't feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for my poor wife Lita who has assumed the role of around the clock nurse over these past four months. I can't bend the leg and only get around by walker or wheel chair. She has to help me with my pills (lots of them) meals., drive me to doctors and more. Without her I would have had to go to a nursing home so I am more than grateful for her loving care.
The bird? Well, you get all the news here. Yesterday the door blew open at our house in Arizona, where we are staying for medical care, and a pigeon got in. The ceilings in this house are forty feet high in the living room with small windows at the top. Of course, the bird headed right for these windows and kept trying to fly through them. We called the security gate who sent a man out. There was no way to reach the bird, but he constructed a net on a long pole and finally got the bird to come down. Once the bird saw the open door he left us.
Given our life as a replay of the movie Ground Hog Day this was the most exciting that has happened in our lives in weeks. Stay tuned for more exciting news from Arizona.
