I had such a bad night last night with the pain in my knee. I just couldn't get to sleep, as wherever I moved my leg it just wasn't comfortable. I got up at 2.15 a.m. and took more painkillers with a glass of warm milk then went back to bed. The last time I looked at the clock it was 4.15 a.m., then I suppose I must have dropped off because the clock then said 8.30 a.m. So, as you can imagine I am completely today!

I have put a countdown clock on my blog to remind me that I haven't got long to wait now until my operation.

I found a really interesting interactive site whilst doing some research on knee replacement surgery. Take a look, it's really good.

You can also take part in hip replacement surgery on the same site for anyone who's interested - Queenie?

Oh darling, sorry to hear you had a bad night. My dear cousin who is anaesthetist, send me a DVD of a hip resurfacing (scarry). I think he thought it would help. Hope you have a better nights sleep tonight (would a couple of wines help?) Not long now, thinking about you. Love yah.

Ah thanks honey. I had a better night last night but then I did have a 'beverage'!

Did you look at the link I posted for 'Hip replacement'? I would imagine a DVD of a real operation would be quite scary to watch, but the link I posted is a bit cartoonish so not scary at all.
