With years of pain in both knees due to strain and cold weather. My knees are giving out. I had orthopedic knee surgery to remove the damaged tissue and bone. This surgery will strengthen my body for more years of having a healthy active life.

Mami is doing better. Since she has been off her blood thinners her wound has started to heal. Since she had lost blood that past few days the doctors are planning to give her a blood transfusion to make her stronger. She should be able to start walking again today. And she may be able to leave on Wednesday depending on the wound and how she feels.


Mami está mejorando. Ella se liberó de los anticoagulantes y su herida comenzó a sanar. Debido a que había perdido sangre en los últimos días, los médicos planean administrarle una transfusion de sangre para fortalecerla. Ella debería poder comenzar a caminar hoy y puede irse el miércoles dependiendo de cómo serán los próximos días.
