The Flynns have had a successful expedition to the doctor's office and are finally able to move forward on getting Mom's total knee replacements! Scheduled for July 16th. They'll be replacing both knees since they're in such bad shape (totally bone-on-bone) due to many many years of arthritis. The good news is that it'll finally relieve a lot of pain she's been in for so long.
The bad news that it's gonna take at least a year for her to heal & rehabilitate. She'll be in the hospital for at least 3 days then in the rehab center for at least 2 weeks. I'll be staying with her, of course. Please keep Mom in your prayers that all goes well. Then she'll moved to out-patient care/physical therapy. (Which the Dr. hints is going to be quite the long ordeal for Mom.)
Any and all donations would be appreciated. Funds will first go towards buying the usual Flynn's staple of vitamins and nutrition shakes that we know will help boost Mom's health before surgery and aid in healing & rebuilding of her muscles during physical therapy. Additional funds will be used towards extra medical costs and/or expenses that will help keep the Flynns fed, afloat and able to focus on taking care of Mom during this time. The 2nd priority will be acquiring treats from Culver's for Mom.
If anyone would like to donate any in-kind donations, (Wood &/or time to make Mom a ramp for the house, Gift cards to Culver's &/or Vitamin Cottage, etc.) Please contact us via the usual phone numbers &/or on Facebook.
I'll be posting updates on the Flynn antics as we undergo yet another medical adventure!
