Do you remember the game Operation ???
I loved it as a kid !

Wednesday I will be the one laying on the table....tomorrow we are leaving for Hamburg to have my knee operated on....I sure hope the Doctor is better at "Operation " then I was as a kid !! 

Please keep you fingers crossed ( thumbs pressed) ...that all goes well....

..I don't expect to coming out springing as a Gazelle....

but walking NOT like a 100 year old lady would be nice !!

Sure hope recovery goes fast ..I'm not good with crutches and laying around all day ( regardless what my Hubby says !)

Have a great week...I know I will ! I will be on pain killers!!!



  1. Thinking of you xx

    At least you can catch up on hand sewing...I hope you saved a quilt to bind for when you're laid up?

  2. Oh Liz, da denke ich ganz fest an dich!
    Ich sehe dich schon als Gazelle zurück an deine Nähmaschine springen.
    Nein, aber ernsthaft: Ich glaube fest daran, dass deine OP gut verläuft und sich der gewünschte Erfolg einstellt. Du wirst sicherlich nach der OP noch viel Geduld aufbringen müssen, aber ich drücke ganz fest die Daumen und wünsche dir alles Gute.

  3. Ich drücke dir die Daumen!!!!
    Alles wird gut!!!!!

  4. Alles wird gut - dem schließe ich mich sofort an ;-)) Ich drücke Dir ganz fest die Daumen !
    Liebe Grüße

    (und vielleicht seh' ich Dich ja dann doch mal im Elsaß ?)

  5. Ich drück Dir ganz fest die Daumen und wünsch Dir Alles Gute!

  6. Hi Liz,
    the german name of that game is "Doktor Bibber" and since my sister got that game I know that it would be better for me not be become a surgeon :-) So all doctors have practiced with that game and are well prepared to do some surgeons magic with your knee. I press my thumbs and keep my toes cross (oh, stop - better the other way around! I have very short toes and it would be quite difficult to cross them...) that your surgery will bring good results!
    pft pft pft (three times I spit over your shoulder) !
    Try to go as relaxed as possible (I know that it is easier for me to say than for you) to Hamburg and come back, my dear Gazelle!

  7. Hi Liz,
    I keep my fingers crossed and wish you good luck for your operation!

    Hugs Marle

  8. My dear Liz,
    you will be in my thoughts all the time and I keep my fingers crossed, that the operation works weel and you will jump arround like a gazelle soon again :O)
    Cool game, i did not know this!
    Have a good time, take care,
    I am with you :O)
    Big hugs to you,

  9. Alles Gute für die OP, da sind ja die Spezialisten, es wird schon gut gehen, ich drück die Daumen.
    Liebe Grüße

  10. Good luck Liz. I hope you'll soon be back on your feet again and walking pain free.

  11. Wish you all the best for a successful surgery and a really quick recovery! Take care...

  12. I remember that game. I too had one. Don't worry about the operation, everything will be fine.
    My mum just had her knee replacement about a month ago. She was in hospital for a few days and came home with crutches. She can't sit still for one minute and was up cleaning with her crutches in no time. She doesn't need her crutches now and feels fine. Try to watch loads of tv, catch up on your favourite blogs and pinterest if you like it, possibly reading or hand stitching. It will be worth it in the end and for once in your life, listen to hubby. I'll be thinking of you and saying a prayer for a speedy recovery. Hugs.

  13. Just sent you a text. Saying a prayer all goes well. Hugs and bunches of. Love. Susan

  14. Auch von mir alles Liebe für dich.
    Ich drücke die Daumen, daß du wieder springen kannst, wie ein Reh.

    Alles wird gut.

    liebe Grüße

  15. Saying a prayer for you that all goes well and that you have a quick recovery! Hugs sent your way.

  16. Don't worry, everything will be fine and you will be back on your feet in no time! Time passes quickly! That much I do know! LOL Thinking of you........

  17. We liked Operation so well I bought Star Wars Operaion with R2d2 which is fun. I will keep you in my prayers. Be a good patient and you'l be up in time.

  18. Liebe Liz,
    ich drücke dir ganz doll die Daumen, dass Alles gut geht und du doch bald (fast) wie ein Gazelle springen kannst :-)

  19. Liebe Liz,
    ich drück dir ganz fest die Daumen und wünsche dir alles Gute.

  20. Liebe Liz,
    ich drücke dir für die bevorstehende OP, auch beide Daumen und das alles gut wird....und das du schnell wieder gut laufen kannst!

    Liebe Grüße Klaudia
