With or without hair, Sammie, you're a beautiful person--inside and out.
I'm all a twitter over your knee surgery! Dh had the same type injury many years ago. The surgery is "easy" as surgeries go, but the recovery for him wasn't. Did they warn you about blood clots? They did dh and sure enough, he got one. Ended up back in the hospital for ten days. Drove him nuts not to be home for so long. Boy, that sounds disheartening--just pretend you didn't read it! (grin)
But do ask about clots.
Since the expander isn't bothering you, I'm glad the doc postponed its removal.
BTW--have you ever considered having a body zipper installed?
Love and hugs--dang!--I forgot to call you this weekend! I hate my brain.
