"I have the best new knee! Three weeks yesterday, the old knee was removed, thanks to a great surgeon and team. Sacred Heart Hospital in three days helped me start moving and handle the pain. Gentiva therapists and nurses have come to my house and challenged me to move, bend, and gain mobility. 96-degree angle and walking with a cane has now made it possible for out patient therapy. Thanks to my husband, sister, and friends I have made it through a time I could do very little for myself and celebrated for each new accomplishment. My daughter told me I'd have to be my best therapist to get the recovery I wanted which is true. But I rejoice that I've had so many wonderful people make my story come alive. Many walks ahead." -- Diana S.
