Good morning dear friends, surgery went as planned Mr P. is doing well, we arrived at the hospital very early Wednesday.....
Note...All photos shared with the permission of Mr. P. he loves his photo taken.
by noon, surgery was over, he was in his room, with a brand new knee. Later that afternoon he was up walking, I am so amazed at how soon you are up after surgery.
We were scheduled to go home Thursday, but the Dr. decided to keep him until today, for precautionary reasons, it seems he was having more bleeding than what he should, which wasn't unusual with folks who are overachievers during pt, yes! Mr. P. is an overachiever, they placed this brace on to immobilize his knee.
Here he is using his new toy, he loves this breathing device, this helps the lungs in preventing pneumonia after surgery.
We are both looking forward to getting back home.
As I am writing this post Dh is resting and getting ready for PT, One of the keys to quick recovery is being active, but not to active to quick, that new knee has got to get adjusted to that leg, and the leg has got to get used to the new knee. Some of the best sleep.
Thank you for all of your kind thoughts and especially all of the prayers.🙏💙💚💛
