Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Cool spring weather in the forecast this coming week.

The week: My wife had her second knee replacement on Wednesday (her first one was done last October). The first few days are always the hardest so we should start seeing slow improvement after the weekend. Having said that, she and I both think this one wasn’t quite as bad as the first one, not that it’s not rough. The pain meds make her sleep much of the time and they make her quite confused. So, we really don’t have any plans for the coming week except sleeping, a bit of physical therapy, and laying low.

TV: We’re still watching Billions (Prime), City Of Angels (Showtime), This Is Us (NBC) A Million Little Things (ABC), The Connors (ABC) and a couple of other shows. We did see the series final of Shameless (Showtime). There were some characters and storylines I didn’t care for but I still thought it was a good show and I liked the almost inevitable conclusion in the finale.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

  1. I’ve had to replace my AC this summer. If I didn’t live on the edge of Mordor it wouldn’t be so bad. There is no way to go through a summer in Texas without it. There will be no fun had for quite some time. On the plus side, it has a better warranty than a new car.

    • I, too, just recently replaced my unit here in Florida. I, also, now have a great (sounding) 5 year warranty on my new unit. However, my old unit was 1 month shy of 5 years old and had an identical warranty. When I asked about my coverage, they pointed out that it only covered labor for a year. The parts were (relatively) cheap, but their repair labor cost runs higher than their installation labor cost. They sold me a new outside unit for less than the repair cost estimate under warranty. Ate the callout charge too.

  2. I do hope your lovely wife gets better quickly. It seems like the older we get, the stronger the pain medication reaction gets. I was really out of it for a day with my hip, but got better as soon as I cut the dosage down some.

  3. While the last few days were no picnic we believe this knee replacement went smoother than the first one. (Knock on wood) I think we’re going to start cutting back on the pain drugs which is a lot earlier than we did the first time.
    Thanks for the good wished and kind words.
