Becoming Bionic

On August 10 ( if I live through the surgery), I will become a Bionic Woman, a Wonder Woman, the Hero of my girlhood. Both my knees will be replaced with knees that function.

I am remarkably healthy for a woman of my age. No diabetes, no heart disease, no high blood pressure. But my remarkable health will quickly deteriorate if I cannot do what has kept me healthy all my life: WALK long distances.

No scooter for me. I am making an investment in my future health and productivity. I am scared. I am doing the scary thing anyway.  I will be gone and convalescing for a bit. Meet you soon, cher Reader.
