This is my sister, Jill. She's my younger sister (she'll be thrilled to know that I pointed out that fact) but quite often she assumes the role of Big Sister. I lean on her a lot for support and advice. It's hard to believe that when we were younger-- much younger-- I was rather snotty toward her when it came to sharing rides on our pony, Honeybee. Now my favorite rides are often those I share with Jill. The reason Jill is on my mind lately is because she's having surgery on Wednesday. She has bad knees, a family trait she inherited, unfortunately. I've lost track of how many knee surgeries she's already undergone, but suffice it to say that she refers to her naughty knee as "Frankenee" because of the many criss-crossed scars.
My sister has a great attitude about her trips to the operating room. With regards to her knee about all she wants to know from her doctor is, "So. Like how long will it be before I can ride again?"
