Here are some random signs that make you realize you are in California:
And now, a sign of the times...degenerative joints.
The surgery is minimally-invasive total knee replacement also known as "quad-sparing" Minimally-Invasive Total Knee Replacement (Real). Rather than cut the quadriceps tendon, special instrumentation and computer navigation software leads the way through a 4 inch incision--a technique that creates an error-free, custom knee replacement and reduces recovery time by about half.
During her recuperation, Sharon was glued to the phone running her RV park.
I am happy that my sis is doing extremely well and began walking without a walker, cane or crutches two days after her surgery! She walks slowly and sometimes uses walls for balance. Her only "job" is to walk 5 minutes each hour, do daily range of motion exercises and apply her special ice machine for 1 hour 3X/day.
MY job was to go-fer more ice.
Her only difficulties have been with her medication regimen. She is intolerant of narcotics and was put on a heavy duty med for nausea and vomiting (N & V). I consulted with her doctors on two separate occasions for uncontrolled N & V but, unfortunately, nothing stopped the nausea & vomiting and has made her recuperation quite uncomfortable.
Finally-in true California-style medicine-natural relief was found.
