My Mom's knee has been hurting her for a few years now. My Brother and I have been urging her to go in and get it checked so she did about a month ago. At that time she learned that she needs a full knee replacement surgery. At that appointment she decided to wait until after her busy season at work and have the surgery this fall.
Well today she went back in because she is having big troubles and it feels like it can go out at any moment.
We learned to day that her surgery will be Tuesday April 21st. Therefore they did her pre-opperation check up today.
I am not sure why I am having such a hard time with this.
I think it is because it is my Mom and she is the strong one! It is also hard to see her in so much pain.
