Home Sweet Home
Vincent at his boarding place - Best Friends in North Plainfield. They email photos of your pets during their stay.
I'm very thankful for Russ (my brother), Laurie and Sydney for keeping things updated.
My orthopedic surgeon said at his end, this was a much more difficult surgery than the other knee. It had a lot more damage done to it. But on MY end, I feel so far that this one is so much better. While I have bruising, it's nothing which makes people gasp. Today before I left, it had 83 degrees of bend. The last one, after a whole week in the hospital, had 61. It has a few degrees to go to be perfectly straight, but nothing not achievable.
I was hauled off first thing this morning for a doppler test -- no blood clot! YES! Exactly what I wanted to hear!
All things considered, I'm feeling pretty decent -- much better than the previous knee 4 days post op. But I am so tired. I thank everyone for their kindnesses and thoughts and will post more soon.
