Knee Update

The surgery is done.

I was in quite a funk yesterday morning, as the surgery just loomed over me. Then we were about to walk out the door and received a phone call that the Dr. was running late and we could stay home for another hour before coming in. Ugh. I just wanted to get it over with.

But at 12:30 we headed on in, and by the time we got there they got things hopping right away and I was prepped and ready for surgery around 1:30.

I woke up around 3 and heard the report that everything had gone just fine.

They did have to remove quite a large piece of my meniscus, so down the road in about 20 years it may not be much fun as I will quite possibly have to deal with arthritis in that knee....but we're not going to worry about that for now!

I can already tell a difference when I put some pressure on it. It doesn't feel loose and wobbly anymore, and the pain is minimal this morning.

I head in this afternoon already for a physical therapy session and I guess some further directions about what I can and can not do with it for a little while.

Chris's Mom arrived last night and will be with us here until Saturday the 24th. Maybe I already mentioned that on here.

Blame it on the pain pills.

My children will be arriving within the hour. I can't wait to squeeze my boopshins!

  1. Thanks for the report! I'm glad it went well...and hopeful that recovery will go equally smoothly. I'm also SO glad for all the family support you all have - what a huge blessing!
