My daughter and grandkids arrived Tuesday while I was at the Surgery Center. Kara said that the kids spent a few minutes hugging on the dog Toot and then Kai asked for his boots! The boy loves his boots! Had to have his boots.
But if he doesn’t have his boots on – he’s barefoot. And he usually makes a big production of taking the socks off and throwing them on the floor… he’s such a boy! LOL
This child – my favorite oldest granddaughter – stood out in the cold holding the screen door open so I could hobble inside after my surgery Tuesday.
I took these pictures using the ToonCamera App.
Here is Keao when she came to snuggle with me in bed Wednesday morning.
And here is the boy snuggling with his Granny in my
It’s hard to hold the ipod and touch the screen to take the picture – but not as hard as it is to get a picture of the boy when he’s standing… talk about a wiggle worm! LOL
The surgery on Tuesday went well – I was very happy with the Surgery Center – very professional. I actually had a conversation with the Anesthesiologists – not the hi, bye you usually get from them.
Anyhoo – my ACL did get a couple stitches to pull together a small tear and then where the ACL broke away from the bone it was screwed back down into place. Six weeks to allow the bone to heal and then the PT will start.
I slept the rest of Tuesday waking up long enough to take more pain meds and eat a small meal. I couldn’t believe I could sleep that much.
My son called during that time to check in on me… and this is his Facebook entry about it…
“Discovered a great new game the whole family can play. It's called Talk to your mom when she is on Percocet and see how many times you get her to say "Wait, What?"
Twit! LOL It shouldn’t be a surprise that this is the one who as a teenager promised to take care of me in my old age… he said “I’ll get you a bed by the window!” What more could I want?
So here we are on Friday… I actually started typing this post on Thursday but got sidetracked by naps and such. The swelling has gone down – my only real problem right now is that the bandaging has shifted and the stitches are being tugged and pull – very pricky feeling. I can’t tell you how annoying that feeling is. I put a call into the Dr.’s office – hopefully they’ll tell me I can pull this stuff off and what to put on over the stitches to protect them.
My youngest and her fella are coming in over this long weekend to visit… the kids are so excited to see her! Me too!
