EKG, blood work, chest is gone!

I spent the day at the hospital and doctor's office...having blood work done, EKG, Chest Xray, urine analysis by catheterization (not fun), be pre-certified by the hospital to have knee surgery in two weeks. After being at the hospital to have tests run, then went to see my regular doctor and he okayed me for surgery. I had no idea what all was involved...I haven't been admitted to the hospital...or had surgery in 27 years! I have been so Blessed...Thank you Jesus! I have had good health until this knee episode and hopefully the surgery will take care of that problem. I am to have a partial or total knee looks like that is going to happen, since tests and blood work look great.

Unfortunately, no crafting or taking photos has been done I am behind on my work!


  1. Hi Donna,
    i know how you feel, I hadn't been to the hospital since my daughter was born 19 years ago, then had kidney stone and apendix taken out last year.
    Hope all goes well, and you get lots done.

  2. Good luck with your knee surgery. My hubby will be doing the very same thing in a couple of months.

    Better find some craft projects you can work on while you're laid up! LOL! ~~Annie

  3. ugh...I've had the cathertization done once for urine analysis and you're right - it was NOT fun. :(
    Best of luck with your knee surgery.
