Three Muses - Fish

I made an ATC for this theme.  This may be one of the last challenges I participate in for a while...my knees have been bad for a long time and the doc warned me that one more "misstep" and it's knee replacement time for me.  Well, a week after I came home from my 20 January surgery, I did that "misstep" and totally blew out my knee.  It's full of arthritis and bone on bone, so when I consulted a new orthopedic surgeon, you know what he said.  Sooner rather than later!  So, two months almost to the day, I'm going to be getting a new knee.  And to make things worse, because I have a rare muscle disease, too, I may have to go to inpatient rehab for a while.  So, I'm trying to get a million things done at the same time, and you know how much that accomplishes...very little!!!  Guess I'm still wrapping my head around recovering from one surgery and going in for another.  I bet my insurance company hates me!

Lynn, your fishy ATC is perfect.

I am sorry to hear you must go through a second lot of surgery but hopefully it will be worth it in the end. Even though you may not be able to blog don't forget to take a great big stash of art materials to the inpatient rehab so at least you can get creative.

Hope all is well soon.
