Recuperating from knee replacement surgeryAn Xray of Maria's knee before knee replacement surgery. Notice the bone on bone.
Last Wednesday, I had a total knee replacement on my right knee. It’s a knee that had been compromised years ago, and it had finally reached a point of no return.
I will be taking some time off writing to focus on rest, rehabilitation and physical therapy.
The pain is intense, which is to be expected. But I’m fortunate to have excellent caregivers who are providing the right balance of support, encouragement and prodding to make sure I become fully functional in short order.
Thanks to all of you for your good wishes during this past week – especially those who voiced strong support for me and the SaportaReport team during a time when we were being criticized.
Looking forward to many more years of contributing to Atlanta’s civic conversation, and I am fortunate that all of you are part of the journey to make our city as great as it can be.
