Second knee surgery done!!

Dh had his second knee replacement today and the surgery went well. Now all we have to do is get those knees healed up and working. In about six weeks he should be feeling good again and walking without pain on those brand new knees. The right knee is doing  good and he has no pain in it now at all. Just working on getting it to bend all the way.

Mare, that's great. I wondered how it all went, but was unable to get to chat this morning. I know when he gets home it'll be more work for you for a while, but soon he'll be good as new. You deeserve a gold star!

It will be six to eight weeks at the least. I hope it goes quickly too.

Wondered where you were at chat today. I was only there for a little while though. A lot more work when he comes home this time with both knees healing. They are doing a better job of pain management this time so that is good.


Love ya

Hi Cindy


Am I glad they are done?? Yes and no. It is a lot of work for him to get them working again and for me to take care of him with no one to help me. But I will be happy once this is all behind us.
