Visit to the Hospital

On Tuesday, Mike had his left knee replaced. Here he is on his first walk about 4 hours after surgery.
He got to come home this afternoon but first the nurse had to remove the wrapping on his knee and put on a large bandaid.

Then it was time for the wheelchair to take him to the car and then HOME!!

Everything went very well and now it's time for rehab!! We are so grateful for Karen who was there the morning of the surgery along with friends and then Kelly flew in from Texas to be with us. Friends from near and far called, sent flowers and candy, came by to visit and then we had lots of good food provided when we got home.

Praise God for things going the way you expected and prayed. That's amazing to be up walking just 4 hours after the surgery. I saw Mike's name on the hospital board at work and asked Becky about him when she was in the library this week. From what I've heard, those who are in a lot of pain before surgery, are the ones who are very, very happy with the results of surgery.

I am so happy the surgery went well and I will be praying for a quick recovery. One of my neighbors had hers done Dec. 17 and I have been taking her to some of her therapy appointments. She has followed all of the exercise directions and is really coming along nicely. Next week she plans to drive herself. I know you are taking great care of Mike!

I'm happy that he is doing great! How long will Kelly be there to help you and Karen? Wish I could provide meals for you! It is times like these that I hate being so far away :(
