This is my very first entry on my blog. What to write? Hmmmm.......
My blogname 'Akelamalu' is my Hawaian name. No, I'm not Hawaian I got the name from this link
thought it was cool so used it as I couldn't think of a name myself.
I thought I'd start this blog to keep track of my progress as I'm about to have knee replacement surgery in the very near future. Yes I'm scared but I really have so much trouble walking these days that not having the surgery is not an option. I have a date for my op - 26th February 2007. This is the second date I've had. I should have been having the surgery on 22nd January but my surgeon had an emergency which put his operating list all to cock, and then he was going on holiday. The good thing is that he particularly wants to do my procedure himself so asked me to wait until he got back off holiday. Well what could I say - better to wait for the main man than have his junior practice on me eh?
I'm feeling OK at the moment but have another two weeks yet to get really hot and bothered about it. Don't know what I'll be like on the morning of the 26th - a nervous wreck I would imagine.
Just spent a lovely afternoon making a Sunday Roast for one of my boys, his partner and their two boys. Had a great time playing with plasticine with Kai (the eldest of the two at almost 3 years old), and cuddling Nate (almost one year old). My son helped me set up the blog and they've just gone home so I thought I'd do my first entry.
They have three Rotweillers, Buddy, Tequila and Gracie. Gracie has gone back to the kennels where they got her from to have puppies. She was pregnant when they bought her so the puppies belong to the kennels. Whilst Gracie is away they are fostering an 11 month old Dogue de Bordeaux called Lottie. They brought her over today and I could have kept her she's so lovable. If/when I figure out how to put photos on here I'll put a photo up of her.
Well that's it for today. Must go now as MWM (my wonderful man) is waiting to use the PC.
