Do you remember where this is from? It'll "Bug" you until you do. Find out during Talent Night at the Cedar Mountain Community Center on June 12th. NOT "AROUND LINDA'S HOUSE"
Our dear Linda Young now has a new knee. She can't see it, which is actually a good thing. But she trusts that Dr. Graham put a new knee in where her old worn-out one was. Therefore Linda is not "Around the House" and so I, Christine, am taking artistic license and writing this segment for (and about) her:
I went to our local hospital to see how Linda is doing and she is "doing very well thank you". By the time you read this she will be home! Or at a neighbors.
Linda was sent to Transylvania hospital's Transitional Care very soon following her knee replacement and very quickly was up and getting around all on her own! "No pain med's for me" she bragged, and said this surgery went "much better than my previous knee replacement. I even have a neighbor here, across the hall from me!". Another from Cedar Mountain had gone in a day after Linda for surgery. I am wishing you both a speedy recovery!
One thing Linda was surprised about was how many knew of her from writing the Cedar Mountain News segment for so many year's. "I had folks coming by just to say hi and to meet me!". I'm sure Linda was looking her best, right? Therefore, when I went to visit Linda I brought popcorn; said I wanted to "watch the show". Going down the hall to her room I noted the red carpet had already been rolled up. But Linda was dressed so we went for a walk. Finishing a good stroll we were about to go outdoors to the bird sanctuary when one of the physical therapists stopped us and said she need to evaluate Linda (ahem). Hiding a giggle I said my farewell's and left. You can all see Linda on Monday June 12th at the Cedar Mountain Community Center's "Talent Night", as she is act #1.
Break a leg! Uh, on second thought, I'll just say a big "Welcome Home" Linda.
