A Long Day!

Well, after a later than planned start time, Jr is resting comfortably in his room at the hospital and is on ALOT of pain meds. Doctor said that everything went as expected and was very happy with how it went despite the later start. JR said when he woke up from anesthesia, he was in so much pain that he thinks he saw God. :-) The plan is that if he can control his pain with pills, he can go home as soon as tomorrow. It will be totally a play it by ear kind of day. Thank you for all the prayers as once again, they were answered!
Now, nighty night for me ;-)

from a faithful web stalker and her troll baby... all i can say is that I am so sorry. my son had knee surgery wednesday (removing hardware from previous work) 1 word: cranky! make sure he keeps it iced, the best thing I bought after my son's knee reconstruction were these gel wraps from pharmacy. you keep in freezer, they stay soft and conform to knee. pricey but worth it 1000 times over.

good luck and hopes for a cooperative patient and a speedy recovery!

So glad that J.R. came thru surgery and is now on the road to will take alot of patience & alot of PT. After having my own hip & knee replacements I can tell you that physical therapy is going to be very important. Hang in there!! We are still praying for all of you!

We're happy to know that things went well, but sorry you're in so much pain, JR! Let's hope the pills keep it at bay and you're able to return home soon. We'll continue to keep you and the whole family in our prayers.
