Ready for the hospital…tomorrow we have to be at the hospital at 9:00 and her surgery is at 11:30. Doctors debating on how to put her under (nerve block or intubation). Short surgery, block means over night stay but she did well the last time with it…wait and see she may choose to come home. Bear will stay with Ed & Jan and I will stay if she does. She should be home Wednesday. I will call mom with and update. PRAYERS, please!
Update: Didn’t go in till 1:00 p.m. but we were home by 6:00 p.m. Successful surgery- knee appliance is ok (not loose, breaking a part) lots of fluid on the knee which causes pain- drained, all around the cavity is cleaned and they did a Zplaste- lengthen some muscle inside the knee. They cut the muscle so this is what is causing her pain. They have her on two different drugs. Last time she had a Nerve Block so came home with no pain, this time they did general anesthesia – allowed her to come home the same day buy lots more pain. We have made lots of good food and plan to watch many Christmas movies!
Bear taken care of his Mama 2
