I would like to know what days are the best to have surgery. My Mother never did anything without consulting the Almanac first! She is now 94 and in the nursing home, so I can't ask her. Please help me out!
I am an RN who takes care of orthopedic patients every work day. My suggestion is to have surgery early in the week Monday or Tues , if possible. Then your hubby can be discharged hopefully prior to the weekend. It is not necessary to consult the moon, just advise him to be an active participant in his care. A word to the wise: walk, walk, walk! My husband has had both knees done he can climb a ladder with 50 lb bag feed he is a rancher.
He can carry large hay bales. He gets on the roof of our house. He had a great Dr. PRAY first tell your husband to do the exercises it may hurt at first but will be worth it.
Move move move it heals the body quicker and does not let the knees muscles lock up. Much luck Never have surgery on Friday!! First purchased your wonderful magazine to help my husband fish. Got hooked on it!

All full moons and new moons combine with the sun to create larger-than-usual tides, called spring tides. But closer-than-average full moons or closer-than-average new moons — that is, supermoons — elevate the tides even more.
These extra-high spring tides are wide ranging. High tides climb up especially high, and, on the same day, low tides plunge especially low. If you live along an ocean coastline, watch for them! They typically follow the supermoon by a day or two. Do extra-high supermoon tides cause flooding? Maybe yes, and maybe no.
