Hi there!
My friend that encouraged me to

Since switching over to this 
new computer I can't pull up

She did write this book though
and I was able to find it on the

Interesting title, huh?
(and a good book)
She says she has

Not sure I would be that calm.

Three years ago she had

Six months ago she had

and she has done
really well since then.

without this surgery
she will be in a 
wheelchair because of the pain.

To complicate matters,
her back has been 
"giving her fits"
(as they say in the South)
and she is in constant pain.

Because of the upcoming surgery
she has not been able to take
pain meds.

Please say a prayer that the

 will have an

If you are not a PRAY-ER
please send your good wishes.

I told her she should go for a

she doesn't want a

LOL, love the comic:) I will say a prayer for your friend. I am just so grateful that they can do these replacement surgeries. My hubby had his hip done last year and recovered pretty easily. He was so bad before surgery he was on crutches so it sure works miracles.

Debby said...

Prayers. Sure hate to hear two big surgeries so close.

Jettie said...

Thank you Diana, I am wondering what you are drinking though this is the other knee, not the other hip. They call me Bionic Woman at church. Thanks for the prayers in advance everyone.. I'll just keep the sagging boobs and the sagging chin. And no, I'd expect nothing less than this from Diana.....

Pom Pom said...

Sending prayers and positive thoughts for your sweet friend Jettie and all of her medical team. Laughter is the best medicine, so I hope she has many moments of laughter during her recovery! Jane

She sounds like a great person!! I was talking to a woman last week who had both knees replaced and she said it was the best thing she ever did! I think replacing things like knees and hips has become so routine that the medical industry is very good at it. Although, I do feel terrible for her, having to endure the pain leading up to the surgery. I hope all goes well and her recovery is quick! -Jenn

Susie said...

Diana, I will pray for Jettie. Sounds as if she's been thru plenty . She's going to be a bionic woman. Bless her heart. Hope you are able to get out up there in the snow. Hugs and blessings, xoxo, Susie

I am sending well wishes to your friend and hoping that she has a speedy recovery without any complications. My mom had hip surgery many years ago so I know a little bit about the recovery she will be dealing with.

Debby Ray said...

As someone who has worked in PT for the past 30 years, I can totally relate to her situation, although I myself have never had to have this kind of surgery. It sounds like Jetti is a real trooper. I'm so sorry she has to go through all of this so I will pray for her stay strong and heal quickly!

Katie Clooney said...

I will keep her in my prayers, dear Diana.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Ooh . . .that's a lot of surgery. Prayers for your dear friend.

Rose L said...

Prayer sent. I know how full knee replacement is as left one is still in recovery. Thank goodness my hips are okay, so far.

A Joyful Cottage said...

Praying all will go well for your friend. xo

Missy George said...

Nor would anyone else..
Sounds like she has a good surgeon..Is her knee hurting her because of her hip or does she need that knee done as well..Hoping for an uneventful procedure and recovery..

Hibiscus House said...

So sweet and yes in prayer for Jettie!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Oh, I so relate to two hip surgeries, but a knee too? Oh my! Prayers going up for your sweet friend.

NanaNor's said...

Diana, This post really spoke to me and you know why. Even though the test I'm getting won't be painful, it's the results that scare the you know what out of me. Thanks for sharing, I'll be praying for Jettie.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'll keep her in my prayers! I sure hope it helps and she doesn't have the pain. I noticed your new banner...oh so cute! Hugs!

Donna said...

Sending prayers and hugs for Jettie!

Kim said...

Happy thoughts, prayers and wishes for a quick recovery...

Adam said...

May their surgery go well

I remember a comedian talking about going to hooters with the whole family. The old uncle said "where did you get them things" and she said "I bought them"

his old wife said "maybe I should get me some"

and he said "that's like putting a new chandelier in a haunted house"

I love when people debate real vs fake. I've been with women who had fake ones, and fake Cs and Ds are better than real As and Bs. Women aren't the only ones who can comment about "size matters"

Prayers for your friend Jettie ☺
