Diana's knee surgery, round 2

Diana Gabaldon mentioned on Compuserve over the weekend that she will be having knee surgery on Tuesday, similar to the partial knee replacement she had in 2010, but involving the other knee this time.

For those of you who weren't around in 2010, here's Diana's blog post about her first surgery.  I suspect that the device she's having implanted on Tuesday will be similar.

If you want to offer good-luck or get-well wishes, prayers, or advice, there's a thread on Compuserve here.

Those of you who are addicted to the #DailyLines on Facebook and Twitter will just have to be patient for a few days, until Diana recovers sufficiently from the surgery to resume something close to her usual writing routine.

By the way, in case you're wondering, Diana has said that Claire's wonky knee in ECHO (chapter 35, "Ticonderoga") and Jerry's in "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows" were both inspired by her own real-life knee troubles. <g>

I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Diana a successful surgery and a quick and complete recovery!

UPDATE 11/15/2012 6:14 PM:  Diana is home from the hospital.  The surgery went well, and she is recuperating, but it may be a few days before she's back to something resembling her usual routine.
