Will be thinking of you and Jim on Monday.  Please let us all know how the surgery goes.  

I'm always amazed how quick they have people up and walking after knee and hip replacements.   He will be doing laps before you know it😀

I visited my friend in the hospital two days after her replacement surgery. 
She walked across the room and shut the door…no cane, no crutch…no limp!!!

That's great!  My neighbor had both knees replaced in the last year spaced out a couple months apart and she is doing very well.

Jim had his Covid test today.  He must've passed, since the hospital called with the time he is to check in on Monday for his knee replacement surgery.  He's waited a long time for this.  He would've gone last year, but with the Covid so prevalent, he was hesitant to go into the hospital at that time.  After getting home from Naples this past May, we thought he would've been scheduled sometime around July, but that didn't happen.  Better late than never!

Good luck on Monday and a fast healing to Jim!

Did anyone see the Miracle House in Palma?

Shame to hear about all the other houses but amazing to see this one house untouched.

 

We did see that and it is absolutely amazing. :classic_smile: And then our next thought was about their inability to access their home, except eventually by helicopter. :classic_smile: And then our third thought was what happens with your insurance, when your house is not destroyed but you can no longer live there? :classic_smile:

Best wishes for a successful knee surgery on Monday for Jim.

He waited a week and a half after the flu shot.  They said they give the vaccines together but I wouldn’t take that chance.

I wouldn't want to do both shots at same time either.

My primary care doctor said to take them 2 weeks apart. I have to wait for my wife to heal because if I have a negative reaction she will not be able to help me.

Nor would I.  I'll get my flu shot in about a week or two.  

 

I've received a generic email that I'm due to the flu shot. It says specifically that you can get it together with the 3rd shot....

 

Still, I also would have left some "space" between the 2 shots.... [I got the 3rd shot 6 weeks ago].

I got my booster on Sunday and my flu shot on Thursday.  I had them do different arms.  After the booster my arm was sore and I felt a little tired for a couple days.  The flu shot just gave me a sore arm.  I would have waited for the flu shot but I was in Walgreens to get my cat's insulin, it wasn't busy for once so just got the shot.

I am done with the flu shot.

Not eligible for the third shot yet. I got a similar generic email from CVS too to schedule both together. I asked about the details. Was told that it is not a booster (especially Moderna), but it is jab # 3 of dose # 2 of the vaccine and eligibility currently is certain groups over 65. OK I will have to wait.

I was also told that an actual "booster" will be coming out which is able to fight future mutations.

Congrats on the negative test...and hope all goes well with the knee surgery with quick recovery!

Both my pharmacy tech and my sister told me it was best to wait two weeks in between, just to be on safe side and perhaps help with set in for both separately I assume.

The Shingrex shot I made sure to separate weeks in between when I got both of mine well before jab of Covid Vaccine.   They definitely did not want those to take place close to each other.  

 

Bucky and I are not due to booster shot officially until mid October, so that falls in line with keeping separate of flu shots we just got.  

 

Still need to get my tetnus shot...but wow...with all of these other shots...tough to fit it in separately as well.  With the six month blood tests I just got and waiting for these...I  think I am turning into a walking pin cushion!  😮

That is so amazing how well they are doing knee surgeries now.  I also had a neighbor who was walking down the street just days after her surgery.  Her doctor recommended she walk as soon as 

possible.  

 

If and when it comes down to me having to get one...I won't hesitate.

That’s going to be stuck in my head for a while. 

 

Indeed some of those tired old songs they play over, and over, and over...and over!!   Are sooo annoying!  😵

@grapau27  I need to come and visit for this.  More importantly, to meet you and the lovely Pauline. 

 

 

Watching the video all I could think of is that there are few things that will clog up your arteries better than a full English breakfast.

I thought the same about only way to get there would be helicopter and there is probably no utilities available either    I didn't think about insurance.    I wonder if it works the same way insurance works in the US.

That has been the reason Eric has been waiting on getting Pfizer booster.    As we heard the booster trials were tweaked a little to fight off other variants/mutations too.      I have not heard when exactly the new Pfizer booster will be available.
