Marty and Sheldon Farwell enjoyed a few days in Door County, Wis. On the way home they picked up their grandson in Milwaukee, Wis and he enjoyed a visit with them. After the fun time, Marty had her knee replaced which was scheduled. So she is exercising and thinking of her fun two weeks prior to surgery. Keep the exercise program up!

Also in the neighborhood, Sharon Berghefer had her knee replaced. So we will see which of these ladies will win the race of rehab!
