Dear Friends: MAKOplasty is clearly the bee's knees of partial knee replacement. Surgery was on

October 14. 32 hours in the hospital and out the door you go to the following scenario:

Week 1: Bask in the delight of pain medication and awesome friends, your every wish is their command.

Week 2: Piece of cake. No crutches or cane. Out to lunch, dinner, movies. Easing off the meds.

Week 3: Now just where did that WALL come from?? Let's regroup here!

Week 4: The yoyo - knee healing well - stamina often missing.

Week 5: Back in the gallery part time, then full time (sort of!).

Week 6: No slacking on the PT and buy a pair of Icebug boots.
