Happy birthday to me, 70 today, and for my present, knee surgery tomorrow. You just can't beat it, I am a blessed man. Threes score and 10. Who would have thought it!

I would say; Have a knee-slapping, happy birthday, pop pop! ;D

You darn sure deserve it.

I wish you the best on your surgery.

Happy Birthday!
May your gift be pain-free walking...eventually, of course.

While you're struggling through the physical therapy which follows your surgery, keep your eyes (and mind) on the prize.
It'll all be over much more quickly than you think, and you'll be really happy with your renewed abilities.

Hope you have had a great birthday! I pray for you to have as quick a recovery as I had two years ago.

Guys, I had a great birthday and the knee surgery is in the behind now. I had it on Monday morning at 8:30 and just now beginning to get around again. I won't go into detail, unless someone wants to know how surgery was, but will just say it was/is very very very painful. I am taking all the pain pills and can tell when they are spent and am in need of more. I have been to my first physical therapy session, on Thursday, and they warned me to be sure to take the meds 45 minutes before reporting for therapy. Therapy will be every other day (3days) during the week. I actually felt pretty good this afternoon. Getting better by the day.

Prayers for you recovery.

Good to hear. The one thing I learned about a TKR is stay ahead of the pain.
