Knee closer to replacement!

The surgeon checked my knee out this morning and says it is ready for replacement next Monday! "It is complicated with all the old injuries, so it will be more like a second knee replacement than a first one" he said, warning me that the recovery will take a month or so if all goes well.
Surgery is Monday; I stay in Mayo until Thursday; the following week I start rehab. I am taking it at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Rochester where dance studio instructor, Bambi, will be personally taking on my care (provided Medicare OK's her personal care license and she doesn't get arrested in the mean time).
