For those who are interested, Herk's(Lou) wife Laura underwent surgery this morning for a knee replacement. The surgery went fine, but from what Lou said, she is experiencing a lot of pain. Please keep Lou and Laura in your prayers.
My wife had both of her knees replaced due to arthritis. I know what it is like. For best results after the surgery with getting motion back in the knees keep pushing and working them. It will be somewhat painful but long term you will be glad you did. Best of luch and a speedy recovery.
All the best for a quick recovery for your wife Lou. My sister had a knee replacement a couple of years ago and it went quite well. Improved her quality of life immensely. Thoughts and prayers for you both.
On a lighter side, My only question is why didn't Lou fix her up himself. I'm sure he must have a manual in his files.
