Response to I need to copy that picture and take it with me!!!! n/t
I KNOW this is a nervousing (heee) situation. I look forward to reading you say how GLAD you are you had this done.
Knnes are harder to recoop than hips, but I LOVE LOVE love my new hip. new parts/new girl here.
did I ever tell you guys the time when I had chatted with a transgender that worked the produre section of the local Safeway store. "She"(her goal)didn't see me for awhile, so when she did I told her that. "new parts new girl!!"
within SECONDS I realized what I had said.(I had been telling friends that way to express how happy I was with my "new parts"). she got a HUGE laugh(still had the deep voice, so her laugh was startling. ok OK! I'll admit tho I respect her whole birth defect and decision to be "fixed" so to speak, and can relate to it in more ways than I would expect.(you know me, withbirh defect, felt put in the wrong body etc). but man when she laughed I was both startled and relieved. she said "OH honey! me too!!!"
If anyone had ever told me I would be able to relate to a man turning into a woman at the produce section, I would have laughed.... long and deep too.
btw, I don't know whatever happened to her, the produce has never been the same.
so annie, the very next transgender that is whatever they call it in the process to change or whatever , you can use my line.(tho you might not have many trangenders in your neck of the woods.ha!)
you will soon LOVE your new knee.
but did they give you anything to relax you tonight? in case anyone out here wants to know that does not, when the anethesiologist calls the night before surgery, you can ask her/him doc if he can prescibe you one or 2 tranqs for the night. but I think your neighbor will work that out for ya.
my very best to you, my fellow Oregonian. We'll be thinking of you. can Austin or someone give us a report? does BB1 or anyone here have the number when the hospital can get a brief update, not like a family member gets but you know, just something to know that the surgery did not produce any surprises and how awesome you came thru it/
otherwise I bet we here from you...and I vow(cough cough) that if you sound high i will never (cough cough)tease you.
