Knee Problems

I don't know if I have mentioned this in any of my other posts, but I have been having problems with my left knee. My regular doctor had an X-ray taken, & found arthritis. Well, it kept giving me trouble & the pain was terrible. So I asked for a second opinion, & got a referal to a "Bone" doctor. I can't spell the fancy word for it. Anyway, he ordered a MRI. I got the results Monday the 23rd of June. I have a couple of tears in my ligaments, & my knee cap has shifted off center. So I am going to have outpatient surgery on my left knee on the 24th of July. I won't be able to put weight on that leg for a week after surgery. Then I start therapy. I'll let all of you know how things go after surgery. Until then I hope everyone is having fun & hope you have good weather for the Summer.

Computer Upgrade

I just got my computer back. I had the windows system upgraded to Windows XP. I had bought this computer as a rebuilt computer. I kept the name & number of the guy I bought it from. So I called him & asked him about the OS. He came over took alook & said he could do it. So then I asked him how much. He gave me a price, & saved up & then called him back, & he came & got it. Now I have it back, & I'm "learning" the different things that are in Windows XP. The colors are very nice & clear. Not dingy like in Windows ME. It hasn't froze up on me either. I also had him install more ram. He did a good job. I would recommend him to anyone. He was also nice enough to pick it up & bring it back, when I told him I didn't have a car, & that I had moved to a the same city he lived in. Actually not to far from him. I'm having to redo a few things. Like my email addresses, & such. There are a few programs I have that I have to buy new ones to. They worked with the old windows but not with the new one. I hope everyone is having a good start to summer.
