The big day is here. My total knee replacement is happening today.
Getting ready to leave. I was packed last night and amazingly enough, I slept right through until my alarm at 6:30 AM. Last time I had knee surgery, I woke up four hours early.
As I took a shower this morning, I looked down at my knee and I flashed forward, envisioning the big scar that was going to run the length of my knee. Then I thought about the metal and plastic that will be in there within six hours or so.
Then, I got queasy.
