Early Wednesday morning, the owner of Paula's Public House mentioned the future of the business on Facebook. She said she's having another operation on Wednesday on her right knee, adding her continuing to run the business will be based on how her knee responds to the operation.

"Friends, early Wednesday morning I shall be going into surgery for yet another operation on my right knee, in hopes that the severe pain I experience whenever taking a step can finally be resolved," the owner of Paula's Public House wrote on Facebook. "Prior surgeries have not been successful, and it has become harder and harder for me to do what I love best, which is to provide you with a fun, happy, and delicious experience. Decisions about how to move forward with the business hinge and fully depend on my being able to be there, with you, and that has become harder and harder to accomplish. Please know that you, each and every one, are in my heart. Wish me luck!'
