My dad was in for double knee replacement today. My dad is 72 and hasn't really had many health issues in his life so far. Has been darn near crippled for over 10 years now with arthritic knees (some of the worst the doc has ever seen) and finally agreed to surgery. I gotta say that it is pretty hard to see your dad so helpless. He has always been stoic, a kind way of saying stubborn, and does not like to complain or be doled over. So, it was tough to see him compromised and in need of much help. He will continue to need that help over the next few weeks. I just pray that everything turns out well and he can actually walk around pain free again! I don't like seeing him and my mother age and I know that there will be more situations like this in their future. Say a quick prayer for him tonite if you would.
