today’s knee slapper

My mama had knee replacement surgery Wednesday. She is doing really well but in an incredible amount of pain. She has an amazing attitude, can get rather mushy at times and has a great sense of humor. She’s quite mortified that she has to use a walker for awhile.

This is the get-well card I just made her….

Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the most painful time of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your recouperation.
When you saw only one set of footprints……..

Finish your assignment! »

    …You saw only one set of footprints; because it was wet, so His feet didn’t touch the ground.

    (What? Nope, no idea how He’d get into a bath tub. By the way, who tailored Superman’s indestructible costume?)

    the pain will subside and 6 months from now she will wish she had done it sooner.

    ^ You can test if something is real science by noting whether or not those kind of questions actually have to be answered.

    Experts call it therapy. Those with knee surgery call it expensive torture.

    ^ They made her get “repair” surgery first. She has been in agony from THAT for the last 6 weeks…”They” being those from the government who make her health care decisions…

    I saw my mom get a knee, toe joints and a few other bits of hardware. She also says she wished she had done it sooner.

    Best to your mom.
